Full review

I am someone who goes to this mountain over 25 times a year, so I know a lot about it. It has a very family friendly atmosphere. The lodge is brand-new, and very big. Several things that aren't so great about this mountain are its old lift, small size, halfpipe and food service. On weekends, when its crowded, the food, ticket and lift lines can get very long. The ladies who do the food aren't very friendly, but the food is reasonable. The lift is pretty old, but very reliable. It is never broken down, but will go pretty slow every now and then. It usaully takes 3-4 minutes to get to the top. On busy weekend days, they'll open the t-bar, which helps ease the lines. Mid-winter is really the best time to come, the terrain park is set up, and almost all the trails are open if not all. You can always count on most runs being groomed. Tubing is always really fun, the tubing park has its own lift, and 3-5 lanes, which are about 100' vertical drop. As for the halfpipe, it really isn't good at all. They don't have any special a equipment, so it is not very deep. It's like two big parrallel ridges of snow, which does infact make a great jump. If you are coming here for more than skiing, don't come. The only building at the base is the lodge, which has rentals, food and about twenty arcade games. There is great night skiing though, you can ski till ten on weekday and Saturday nights. If you live in the Bangor area, this is definately a great place to ski or learn to ski. If you are traveling an hour or more to ski here, go to Sugarloaf, Sunday River or even Camden Snowbowl. Unless you are already in town, this isn't much of a vacation mountain. But this mountain is definitely a good one to check off your list. P.S. The date I put for date visited is just, in my opinion, the best time to come, January.
