Short lift lines/long runs//incredibly affordable
Fog and access to terrain

Full review

Lines tend be non existent here, lift tickets and housing are affordable and the terrain is as good as any mountain in the country. It’s clear that the original layout of the mountain lift system was not well though out 50 years ago. However, we’ve been coming here for more than fifteen years and have witnessed great upgrades to the mountain lift system by current ownership. I also hear there are many more upgrades in process. The addition of the flower point chair and moving chair 5 to the east rim area were huge improvements. Thank you! I’ve heard of upgrades to the Hellfire area and I hope they are considering upgrades to the right side (as you look up the mountain from the bottom) of the mountain as well. Russ’s street might be the longest catwalk in the country so I’m hoping they find a way to reduce that trek by providing lift service to the top from that side of the mountain. The fog can quite bad here but tree skiing helps and there are plenty of gladed areas around Flower Point. You can’t beat the lodging prices at the mountain. They are a fraction of what you might pay in Colorado. There’s not much by the mountain at night besides a small bar at the base lodge and Ed and Mully’s at the bottom of chair three. The town has several great restaurants but it is a good 15 minute drive away. overall, we love this mountain and look forward to seeing the new upgrades. It has its trade offs but the pros far outweigh the cons.
