Great Skiing, get both resorts on one ticket, Not remodeled since the late 80's
Small Lodge, Overly Crowded on Weekends

Full review

So I started Skiing here when I was 13yrs old, always loved this mountain, I have a season pass at Bear Creek, but when temps turn warmer, time to go north, so I head to Jack Frost about 1hour 40mins away, so the website has the mountain all wrong, there are a number of blues(some should be black diamond) very steep, the terrain park is awesome, something for everyone, I returned last year for the first time after 20 years, first of all, the lodge and decor has not changed one bit, but the terrain is different, what I have noticed is that the snow quality is excellent! It gets very busy on weekends so beware, but all in all, east mountain is excellent! They state on this website they do not have black diamonds, they do actually, and very challenging ones, On the one Blue trail, exhibition, they have regular skiing and moguls, then you go over 2 trails to steeper black diamonds Thunderbolt and Challenge, then off to far east mountain, don't worry they have an out, snow chute, of you don't take it, you will have to face the double black diamonds which are not on the trail map, they list them as Black diamonds, they are not, the second you get off the lift you are met with a "double black diamonds,experts only sign, so I figured I would ski it, I went down at first which were black diamonds, then was left which was a 40 or 50% slope the rest of the way down which was met with a glade. What a rush, From beginner to expert you will find this mountain a blast! After you get tired at Jack Frost which closes at 4PM, you can head over to Big Boulder, 50% ski terrain, 50% Terrain Park. Like skiing trees? Try Mad Tree Glade on the Double Black Diamonds at Jack Frost! All in all, great snowmaking, light buttery like dry snow, a blast to ski!
