Can't get resort operator to answer!

Full review

As much as I enjoy this resort I find it disconcerting that I can not get anyone to answer one simple question. Resort operator option does not work. Wanted to know about lift status on days I'll be in So. Lake. It is not worth the drive or the price of a lift ticket if lifts on the back side are not operating. I have flexibility as to which days I can make the drive but would like to be able to call the mornings of, to find out the current lift status.
