Full review

We skied there on the president day weekend, prices are not cheap so one should expect better conditions. The mountain is very nice and probably one of the best terrains in the area, that also goes for the natural snow, which was very good on Saturday. However, the management is terrible, for several reasons: there are only two very slow lifts (3 person each) and what is even worse is that they close one after 4:30, when it is not even dark at this time of the year. The resort roads are not well maintained and it was difficult to drive. It wasn't snowing too hard so I would imagine that if they are usually like this you would require a 4 wheel drive truck to get there. On Sunday they turn on the snow machines and did not groom at all, so, the conditions were not very good on many slopes, the machined snow is really bad. The park is almost nonexistent, and there is no magic carpet for people that want to learn so be advised if you are taking children or introducing someone to ski. Finally please give yourself a favor and don't go to the restaurant, unless of course you want to wait in a cold place for more that an hour (after ordering) to receive a simple sandwich, the cafeteria downstairs is fine but crowded. So in conclusion, given that the mountain is very good is a pity the management do not care. This could be a great place if run appropriately.
