If it’s a busy day you better be early or you maybe be driving around for a long time to find a parking spot v you can go up and drop everyone off but you might be parking down the road although there are multiple shuttles. Lift 4 is a 20 minute ride which seems forever especially when ski school starts using it. Overall it was an amazing place with a vast amount of trails to try and never felt crowded at all. Highly recommend this place!... Full Review
