Full review

I went here a while back, and ut was an alright experience. I went with a college group, and we got there about an hour and a half late, and by the time we got our tickets, most places were already tracked out. The tram and the gondola had loong lines, 5 minutes at least, and most runs were crowded.

I enjoyed myself, but I felt like I was at disneyland again -stuck in an overcrowded area with a bunch of tourists, long lines, and children EVERYWHERE.

I think that if I were to ride here more often, i would get to know the good less tracked out areas, but as a one-time visit, I was annoyed at how many people were there. Plus all the employees I talked to were from other countries or other parts of the US -no locals like what may be seen in other resorts of the area.
