I haven't been there in over 10 years but given when I was I know a few things about it. First off, it's nothing big, it's small but then again so are most resorts in middle of NY. Secondly, it gets a crap load of snow from a nearby lake added along with the regular snow droppings from the weather. Third, unless they changed it up, the trails on the far left are only accessibly by a T-bar, which can be a PITA if you're not used to them. Lastly, even with a good powder dropping, most of the trails are not, steep-steep so you can't really do much other than take long turns. Otherwise you'll slow right down and wind up falling over in it. The exception is the main trails that go under or next to the chair lifts.

Great snow, not usually packed, and if you look hard enough there are some nice trails that aren't marked to hit up for fresh snow. Just be prepared to hike for them. Just not a huge mountain but I always thought of it when I grew up in CNY as the powder place around. They did used to have a small half pipe on the far right of the place that was accessible from going up the chairlift for the bunny slope (ironic I know) and you went into a trail behind the lifts near the tree lines. Not sure if that still exists or not.

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal
