It takes 12 minutes to cover 3/4 of a mile on the ride up and when it's 4 degrees out, it seems longer that that. They had been 100 percent open the day before, however, two of their most difficult trails (Whip and one other) were under the guns as they made snow during the morning, and had heavy cover by noon, so the guns were turned off, yet the trail stayed closed.

The $25 weekday ticket is a bargain, and there were no lines anywhere, and with very light traffic on the trails, made time for 16 runs in 4.5 hours with 2 trips in for warmth and food. The rollers on the trails made for fun rides, but for a fast skier, you will be in the air before you know it. I learned to carve the edges of their rollers to keep speed and stay on the ground.
The snowboard park needed a separate (free) pass, so I didn't bother, but I usually make one pass down the obstacles at other ski areas just to scope it out and catch a little legitimate air.
They employ great people working their lifts and the lodge, who are very friendly and sincere.
My kids would love the mountain layout, with their balanced variety of challenges on their well groomed trails.
It's just a long ride back up so bring somebody to keep you company.
