Unfortunately we picked the wrong weekend to commit to skiing. Sleeting rain/rain going up on Friday and Sat. didn't help. Surprisingly empty the rest of the non rainy days though. No or little lift waiting. Only 60 trails open out of 161 :-(. You can...More

This is where real eastern skiers ski. It is a real mountain, with real weather and real steel trails and real ice sometimes. The best part is that it is a covered with real skiers.
