The hill is VERY poorly maintained

Full review

I’ve gone there several times this year and now multiple times I’ve gone the hill was not maintain at even an acceptable level. It’s a total sheet of ice in most areas including the lift on and exit areas. A HUGE are right in the center of the hill with icy spots throughout the rest of the hill. I’ve messaged them several times about this issue to no avail in anything actually improving before leaving this review. The truly pathetic thing about it is the fact they only have one lift and 2 runs going and STILL DO NOT MAINTAIN THEM! They’re supposed to have 10 runs and two lifts going. I understand the weather being warmer for not having those going, but the least they could do is ensure the runs they do have available are kept in pristine condition. It’s inexcusable the shape that place is in. Every other man made snow resort in a two hour drive from Omaha has all their lifts and runs open and they’re experiencing the SAME WEATHER. Obviously the owners of those places is more interested in providing a quality ski/snowboarding experience than the one at Crescent.
