New ownership has made a big investment and it shows. Less than an hour from Albany area
Low elevation and El Nino hurt it this year.

Full review

With totally new ownership and management taking over 2 years ago, the positive signs are eveeywhere. New triple chair to summit this year replaced the nasty old centerpost double. New trail, Gnarwall, extends down from it. Marked blue, but Feels like a single black. New & improved terrain park. Improved school and racing programs. Improved restaurant/lounge overlooking main slopes. When El Nino finally gives em a break, this place will shine as the great small family-oriented which it is becoming.
