Full review

First off, Stratton is a good mountain but not for the price. It costs anywhere from 65$--80$ just for the lift tix. Reantals are reasonable but confusing because they have 30 or so packages. Let me start off with the terrain. At Stratton there are only really hard trails(diamonds) or really really flat trails(negative circles). They do have squares but you have to go down double diamonds first which I can do but do not enjoy it. But the good thing about their trails is that they are amazingly long and turney. THey have a wide selection of moguls to steeps and a HUGE amount of glades. Stratton is my favorite for glades, they have soe for the little guys while they have straight down tree full ones too. THe terrain parks are pretty good but you have to get a saftey pass for them so you could get in. The lifts are very fast and they are mostly super sixes and quads(super meaning detachable) But the lines are long. Depending on who you are dining options can be a lttle slim and expensive. THe bes part of stratton is the town at the bottom so when i board my mom is down shopping having a good time. The staff is always nice and I think they have the best snowmakig in VT.(just my opinion so...) sorry this was so long but i hope it helps. Cya on the mtn.!!!
