Lifts are stupidly slow. There's only 1 lift that is supposed to be "fast" (Grand Canyon Express) and the load speed and line speed are being run at novice levels. I've never had to wait so long to get on an 6 chair "express" lift when the line wasn't even that crazy. The other lifts are even worse: 5 minutes on the chair for a 30 second run (why does this lift even exist anymore?). Agassiz is the only way to get to the top of the mountain and takes 10 minutes to get to the top. I'd love to practice on more advanced terrain but not when it takes forever to get there. Snowboarders everywhere. Way more than you'll see at other resorts. Your average snowboarder doesn't know how not to be an annoyance. A ton of stuff roped off when it should be open. I get that it's early season but if you want to close this much of the mountain off then don't charge full price, especially when the stuff that is closed off is completely skiable! The lodges are too small and crowded. Not a place you really want to hang out, but Fremont being new was pretty good.
