Full review

got there a 8:45...after a BLIZZARD. specifically asked the desk if the entire mountain would be open. guy said "of course." at 9am...they announced the sunrise 6 would be delayed till 9:30 because of ice and you could take shuttle to the other side. they had ONE guy banging ice off chair every five minutes. ps-they said they knew it would be on ice delay at 7am, but didn't get working on it till 9. AND they kept it a secret till 9. had breakfast...waited...chair didn't open till 10:30 (what happened to 9:30?). get to the top...there's 3 TRAILS open. saving snow?? also...gondola was on "wind hold" until everyone started asking "where's the wind." since there was no mysteriously changed to "ice hold" at 11am. had to take 3 lifts to get to the top. seemed an awful lot like they just didn't want to spin it with so few people. OUTRAGEOUS!!! especially for $72 mid-week ticket. overpriced, understaffed and a take-it-or-leave-it attitude. drive an extra 20 minutes and go to okemo.
