Full review

They have an OK variety of runs, all are pretty short. It's a small hill, and I don't think there is a single tree on the whole thing. It can get really crowded too. A lot of local schools have bus trips that go there. Sometimes the hill is too crowded to be safe. I've had a couple of collisions there with out of control kids.

The bar is OK, you can get away from the kids.
