Full review

Everyone talks about how hard the mt. is. true of parts but also large areas of wide, groomed trails suitable for most anyone (including me). almost never a lift line. mountain can be cold but generally not by mid february. last trip i saw, elk, moose, deer , coyotes and bald eagles just wandering around- and a small herd of buffalo across the street from the airport. if you are a family , the place to stay is unquestionably the 2 or 3 bedroom cabins at Granite Ridge. Just like the old west with hot tubs
