and Drew's Review:
Thing: Size, amount of snow, fastest lifts.
Thing: Windy, when we were there.
To Go: Amount of space.
Big Cheeseburgers, & we over heard from others the best entrees
(whatever they are)
Lines: Long, but not long enough to gripe about.
Trail: Nile mile for cruising, King Tut for challenge, Raceway
Well groomed, if icy they warn you w/signs
Lots and very nice.
Pipe or Boarder Friendly: Great park and pipe.
Boarder Trails: All Access
9.5 thumbs up (10 best)
33 trails (too many for one day)
No bargains, but worth it because of the size. (They have a frequent
rider pass, but we're traveling)
Level: Zilch, none, no boredom
Loved the mountain. Lodge music was OK, but probably chosen by some
old guy. Not enough jumps on regular trails. "We'll Be Back"
