It's pretty shit at this time of the year. It gets better when they can smooth out the bumps. My poor girlfriend has tried it a number of times but she has never made the top.
I saw a skier last year in front of me tuck his poles under his arm and pull a beer out of his jacket for the ride up. Sadly they are not made for riders!
