OK so I just went there for the first time and...the liofts are a joke and need to be replaced. They have a rediculous ramp that 50% of the boarders could not successfully board off of the lift. I have had 10 years of board'n and that lift on the right streesess me out. Like beginner and intermediate slopes on the mtn but you need to be a pro to get off the lift. They call them double's but they barely fir 1 large guy and then to try to dismount w/ 2 up there? That's a tough one.

The trails were short as the mtn is small. Go during the week if at all. I WILL NOT GO BACK. Plenty of other better options around dc! Great for beginners w/ bunny slopes galore. Slow lifts.

Grooming is the worst I have ever seen. Afternoon is better as skiers and boarders self groom that chunk of hard snow/ice.
