Full review

so recently stratton had a huge snow storm, 4ft! perfect conditions, the only problem was that management did not put 2-2 together that when theres a snow storm that means icing. I would think that they would get up earlier to deal w this problem so the lifts would be running on time to accommodate the insane number of skiers, but no...we got there and 3 lifts were down all morning incld the gondola! In 2 hrs we got 1 run in! We decided to leave and cut our losses. In all fairness the facilities and mountain were great and I know that w/o the icing problem there wouldn't have been such insane lift lines, but a mountains true colors show when things dont go according to plan. I wish they would have addressed the problem earlier because we spent 6 hrs driving (both ways) for 1 run.
If you want a no hastle ski experience go to cannon, close parking and no b/s, just ski!
