Full review

Overall a really fun place to spend a day. Great for beginners and intermediate riders, but experts will definitely want something more. What passes for a double black diamond is more like a blue square, but none the less enjoyable. Due to the souther location, typically consists of mainly man made snow, which turns slushy around noon, and starts to refreeze around 3 or 4, leaving conditions pretty icey on the steeper slopes. One major turn off was the lack of a j-bar or tow-cable for the terrain park, leaving those riders to suffer through the incredibly long lift lines. Parking was also not too enjoyable. If you plan on getting a whole day of riding in, get there a little early because you'll probably have to park about a mile away from the slopes (a free shuttle is provided and they are quite frequent). Have not tried the lodging but the facilities seem to be pretty nice and their are a few nice places to grab lunch as well.
