Awesome and beautiful terrain. Knowledgeable and nice and helpful people all over the mountain and it's facilities.

Great mountain - not enough snow

Awesome mountain - terrain, lifts, and people. Expansive skiing well served by several high speed lifts. The total elevation is not very high, making the weather a bit on an issue. Mountain becomes icy very quickly. Great accommodations! Bear Paw Condos were fantastic.
