Decent vertical and all mountain terrain for the location
Terrible apres ski, no fireplace, unaccommodating staff, trails are closed for no reason

This place is the worst. Can't believe lift tickets are normally $70. Thankfully I paid $60 for this visit, but it was still too much. Their facilities are run down and they don't even have a fireplace anywhere to warm up after a day of skiing. Even their staff are cold and unaccommodating. I was kicked out of an area that actually had outlets and seating to charge my phone even though it wasn't being used so now I'm in a cold dingy corner on a floor writing a review. They don't have half of their terrain open which is all blues so there aren't trails in my intermediate comfort zone, even though those trails look to be perfectly rideable and they've been making snow on them for weeks. This place boasts family friendliness but I don't see anything family friendly about it. The only decent thing they have going is the vertical, which is nice for all 2 of their black diamond trails, but that's pretty limited for anyone looking for advanced terrain. Their small terrain park is limited, although it was nice and long. What little advanced terrain they actually had open was blocked off for race training for the entire evening. I'm used to crappy ski resorts, I live in Ohio after all, but this place is a nightmare. Burn it with fire and then it might actually give off some warmth. Ugh.
