Went up to stratton over the presidents weekend. I was not pleased at all. The trails are over rated and boring. The base area is jammed with rude pushy people that are more concerned with jumping the line than enjoying the day.Gondola is a cheap joke, very uncomfortable. Ski school for my kids was an unorganized mess(they left my daughter unattended).
Lodging is typical intrawest, overratted. Long trail house was a decent set-up but not maintained very well. They try to do everthing on the cheap. The pool area smelled like mold/urine.
Village looks nice but does not offer a lot except shopping. Food at peak times means a long wait. Service is horrible for the most part.
It would be a much better place if the wern't trying to do too much with a small mountain.
