Never get tired of this mountain. Love the selection of trails and the lifts are pretty awesome. It can get pretty busy on the weekends, but it's always worth it. I've taken snowboarding lessons from them, and they are excellent.

I'm not sure what your question is or was. I was just a customer so not sure about religious services (Masses) I can comment on Masses of people at lodge. There was not many people there that day.
