Full review

I've been skiing for 15 years and intermediate. We were told to try it as I can do groomed blacks at Solitude, Alta and Snowbasin days before. IT WAS OVER OUR HEADS. There are NO easy runs. The drop-ins to the blues at Snowbird makes it a difficult black. While wide open, it was hard to do wide turns because the mostly-male-aggressive skiers fly past the novice closing the space for wide turns. To avoid steeps and moguls the only option is 2-3' cat trails. NOT a fun day skiing on cat trails. We did 3 runs and left feeling we took our lives in our hands trying to get out. DO NOT GO if you cannot do steep blacks and moguls at other resorts first.
