Intermediates will enjoy Deer Run, which meanders through a beautiful part of the mountain. There are two glade areas on the upper mountain and additional expert terrain in the area under the Tomahawk quad. Snowmaking covers Horseshoe Pass, another upper mountain trail. The area has over 170 acres to romp in, 96% of that covered by snowmaking equipment.
