I was at Winterplace on Saturday Feb 9. The slopes were packed with church youth groups since there was a concert that night. The resort did a good thing by having all their slopes open and running all the lifts (parallel lifts). However, they could have done better by organizing the lifts so they were all full. The resort desperately needs to put some money into upgrading there lifts. The current lifts just cannot lift enough people up the mountain creating extremely long lines at the bottom. As far as the conditions go for Sat. the slopes were a combination of frozen granular and slush, it was just too hot. The lodge also needed to be cleaned because it smelled like mold and had trash everywhere. This is defiantly a resort that specializes in large groups and they do a good job of that. They just need to put money into their lodge and lifts.
