Full review

Usually great hills, but they did not take care of the runs and with icy conditions it was a let down. We did get a little snow, but ice underneath made it very scary. I'm not sure why they didn't groom better as I saw the groomer tracks but it left a lot of ice chunks. I heard the new owner put 3.5million into this place, but the only thing that looked new was a bar and restaurant. With lift ticket prices we always pack our own food for lunch, but we did try for dinner and was not impressed. I was also hoping for a new and improved room but instead got the same old 1970s look with bedding about that same age. The tube tv was funny to see and great to see kids reaction to it.
