badly maintained, terrible value for money

Full review

Conditions are bad right now. An ok resort when the snow is good (if you like 'em small). Despite their weather reports the conditions were bad today - sparse snow, lots of rocks and ice. Runs very badly maintained, not a smooth ride at all. Toilets out of order. 30 mins for a cup of soup from the cafe. We could only manage a few hours of this so I resented the big NO CASH REFUNDS sign at the ticket office. At £30 it's the most expensive place in Scotland, but you don't get much for the money. If the snow gets better it's a decent place for beginners. Two chair lifts make it easier to get around.
