Full review

Skied 2 days over MLK weekend. The snowmaking abilities are impressive given the rest of the mountain was bare. Nearly all runs were open. It's usually icy in spots, especially in the afternoon. The crowds in the mid to later afternoon were crazy. Almost 1 hour waits for some of the lifts. Variety of runs aren't too bad. It's broken down into 3 areas, beginner, intermediate, & advanced. The advanced lift lines are typically short. The intermediate can fill up quickly. The beginner can be ridiculously long. Overall, not bad for VA.
