Lots of Blues, no surprises grooming, vast area for many abilities, many linked runs
Near zero after 2 days of mid 30’s resulted in hard tin corduroy, slow chairs

Full review

Visited after big two day thaw followed by sub zero temps. Grooming was done everywhere evenly, but it froze hard corduroy. Not very carveable. Mid week February and only 6 cars here! $15 lift ticket on retro 70’s day. Portapotties at rental ticket center. Restrooms in hotel. Great intermediate area 80%, advanced mogul areas, 10%, beginner winders (long) in back (Lech) 10%. Leave backpacks in car unless you can load while carrying it. A few more fresh inches and/or skiers to breakup the crust and this place will be dynamite.
