I've been skiing here for you for years. Prior to the acquisition by Vail, it was a great place to ski. Since then, the focus is more on money and less on people, both skiers and staff. If I had any other place to ski I would.
Good blue terrain
People and prices

If you value your time and money, don't ski here! they oversell their tickets to such a degree that they don't have enough parking for even half the skiers! we couldn't even ski, and we drove hours to get there! Not only is there virtually no parking, the tickets are overpriced! you could eat for a week; or go to Stevens for a few hours. Based on what the employees said, this overselling happens quite frequently, and they don't tell you anything about it. If you want to go skiing, go to snoqualmie. Overall, very disappointing :(
ok runs
parking sucks
The mountian has some fun advance and expert terrain. Generally there is great snow here. The best this mountain has to offer is the steep tree lined chutes off the top of Cowboy and Big Chief Mountains. Intermediate terrain is limited and grooming is very limited. Weekends are crazy busy and there is more skier demand on weekends than the infastructure and lift capacity can handle. Mid week it can be awsome especially if there is new snow.
Really fun steep terrain, tree skiing, and chutes on DD, 7th Heaven, and Southern Cross lifts
Grooming has been less than ideal in recent years. Last year they didn't run the whole mountain, this year they have all the lifts spinning. It get overcrowded on weekends.
So this was our first time here so it might not be a completely fair review, but I had a lot higher expectations than what was given. Arrived at 9:20 and was sent to a lot 5 miles down the road with practically NO SHUTTLES. one comes every 15-25 min and is TINY if you’re in the last lot. After about 1.5 hours FINALLY made it to the lodge and was greeted with 12$ pizza SLICES and crowds. Did a couple laps of the backside which had great terrain, but then leavinf the mountain had to wait another 30 minutes just to catch a bus back to the Nordic center. Just overall didn’t feel worth my day considering the majority was spent driving up and waiting. 0 stars for how vail has ruined this resort. Just sad
Great terrain
Vail, parking, business, crowds
Love stevens, grew up learning there. Great mountain for all levels and you can always find something enjoyable for you ski level. Less snow than Crystal but way cheaper as well.
Great park and great size of mountain
Less snow then crystal

Been a pass holder throughout covid. I’ve seen the good and the bad. The resort has improved. Lines move better, staffing is present and more attentive, additional seating in place. But there are still downsides. Occasional lift stopping, long lines. Early closure of the backside, still in need of more seating, parking is horrendous, bathrooms can be messy/flooding, and more entertaining apres options. Make it inside and outside options with warmth. Otherwise it’s too crowded. Better than last year but still can be improved.
Good overall options on available terrain. Decent snowfall vs other close mountains.
Parking can be painful, not enough lodge seating for busy days, lift line wait times, variable chairlift availability. Expensive food.

Some of the amenities like the ski corral are no longer open. At one time the corral was available to season pass holders at no additional cost but because of staffing and other reasons it’s no longer available. The corral is something that should be available. Also the services staff seems inexperienced and couldn’t answer questions about locker options and rentals.
It still offers a lot of runs and snow is usually very good.
Highway 2 has been closed a lot this year

Just needed to give a shout-out to the ski patrol guy they call Rib. I fell into some sketchy terrain and but luckily was able to climb out. Rib helped me down the mountain and was the coolest dude. And tell the guy running Jupiter's lift yesterday (4/10) that he beat me, I only broke one rib!
Great place for all skill levels
Too expensive

Until Vail sells this resort to a company that cares for its employees and pays decent wages dont even think about skiing at this mountain. Unless of course you want to spend hours in line to get on one of the few lifts that are open.
Great Mountain Terrain
Ski Resort destroyed by Vail Management

WOW! Over $100 for less than 3 hours of boarding! No refunds! I was there last week and only 3 out 12 lifts were open. After a couple of hours 2 of the 3 lifts had broken down. They refused to give any kind of refunds or discounts on a future ticket. It's a shame because there was lots of snow and the mountain looks great but this is the worst run area I have ever seen.
There's snow
