Full review

I love this area, have skied it for 20 years. Very helpful & friendly staff. The best place to learn for beginner skiers and snowboarders, 20 years ago it had moguls, now that its mostly a beginner snowboarder mountain, it needs to glade (thin for tree skiing) some areas for moguls to form for advanced skiers. We need a bit of a challenge. Thinning the sides of La Madera and Diablo would be enough... we don't ask for much.
