Lifts not working and the Lines

Full review

Great mountain for real skiers. My family went up fri to Mon. If you could get to the top (Fri only) it was worth it, But most of the mountain was closed. (still snuck into some of the glades). The resort built a huge water park which brings more family groups and beginner skiers. The lift capacity is not built for these crowds. Plus the wind was blowing so most lifts were closed. Very disapointed in how they managed the crowds. Communication in the morning was "All Lifts Spinning" We started at 8:30am Sunday, only Jet, Taxi and the short main lift were spinning. Crowds at Jet were double the lift line ropes. Then they closed Jet. The resort needs to upgrade how they communicate and add some detachable quads. Other than that, if you can get into the Glades and other not populated trails, Powder. I would stay away on Holiday weekends.
