Full review

I've been out to Timberline the last 2 weekends and it's been amazing. There's a great selection of runs for the advanced skier that covers everything: bumps, glades, and black cruisers. They have a ton of snow there and conditions have been great. Last weekend was fresh powder and plenty of it. This weekend was more typical mid-Atlantic skiing, but only a couple runs got icy by the end of the day. All the warnings about the slow lifts are spot on, but the terrain is worth it. Also some of the best prices around, including food/drink in the lodge. The terrain park is a joke; if that's what you're interested in look elsewhere. If you want solid all-mountain skiing, this is the place to be.
