Good beginner / intermediate trails
Poor Mountain and Trail Design

Full review

Overall I had a good experience at Shawnee Mountain. There were good trails for beginners and intermediate level skiers. But... The trail design of the mountain is very poor. There is one intersection where 4-5 different trails meet up and it is just asking for a accident to happen. Another aspect is that there are several steep (black diamond) slopes right at the bottom of the mountain. This is also another accident waiting to happen. If not controlled Skiers will and can easily crash into stationary people or even go off course to the bottom of the mountain. (I suggest you search the news for a recent article regarding this)
