Here is the thing. Most people who complain about this place are stuck on groomers. If you like trees and pow, then you will love 49. Not the steepest, but it does offer up tree lines that beat anything in the area. Its not the largest but quick laps through the trees are very fun and there is plenty of natural terrain to grab air on. Simply put, if you are smart and don't care about amenities then 49 is your place.
