Dangerous, no ski patrol, not family friendly

Full review

Do NOT take kids to this place. There's only one green down the mountain and it is a narrow and flat "s" shaped run called Academy. It is dangerous, as many steep slopes dump right into it and it isn't very wide. There was an impassible run with no indication that it was closed at the top. Found out it was impassible the hard way. Didn't see a single ski patrol person all day. There was no one to even tell that runs needed to be closed. Lady behind ticket sale counter said she would tell someone, but was rude. The two dudes running the ski rental shop, could care less. Maybe just late in season, but this place is dangerous, understaffed and has a very bad run layout. We're black diamond expert skiers. This place is UNSAFE!
