Full review

For those of you who ride hard and rest little, this place is for you. There is abundant terrain/runs that spread people out to the point some days you wonder if you're the only one there. So even though the lifts aren't the most modern, there is no line to wait. The overall time is therefore the same as some big resort with modern lifts and huge lines. There are hidden runs and great tree skiing. They always seem to have a deep base and powder stashes. The liftees especially the bunny hill are very friendly which makes it great for kids. For those expecting a social lodge atmosphere, this is not your place. This place is for an all day affair with the mountain not its people. And snowboarders beware, the backside cat track has some uphill, so either drop into the trees as soon as you can or keep your speed up to explore what's around the corner. I also feel secure with my equipment here. I don't get the idea that people are going to steal; they are there to ride just like me.
