Yes, be careful using chairlift #3 (the one immediately left of the Express). The let-off point is awkward; it kind of slopes down to the left right away. Be ready to skate downhill slightly before being able to strap in. Also, if you can't tackle steep terrain at all, DO NOT use the Sweet Express. Even though it accesses beginner, intermediate and advanced runs, you have to come down a pretty steep drop to get off the landing zone.

The way to do it if you're not comfortable skating or with steeper terrain is to take the chair to the left of the beginner tow rope. It takes you up a very long bunny hill. On your way up, you'll see two more chairs to your right. When you get off that lift, strap in and ride down towards those two chairs, cutting across halfway down the bunny slope. Once you're over there, there's plenty of stuff to keep you busy for a night.

For the record, Columbine and Snowberry are my favorite runs there. Great intermediate terrain, wide and lots of dips and depressions to keep you busy. Great for practicing turns.
