I went Monday night. DO NOT GO WHEN MAKING SNOW! I've been to plenty of places making snow, but have never been sprayed in the face before. Yes, they point the blowers uphill directly into the faces of the skiiers. The resort is laid out poorly. Be prepared to pole long distances on most trails. I've never had to pole on an intermediate before! If you like a cross between alpine skiing, nordic skiing and playing in the sprinkler, Winter Place is for you! Otherwise, go to another resort. The people who like this resort have not been to a real resort or they have a vested interest in the place (i.e. workers, investors, etc.). I have not been so bitterly disappointed in a long time! I only recommended this to empty nesters because you must choose one option to post. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place to anybody!
