Holly has the better regular runs. They have a long green run that I actually love to hit to mess around on or practice things. Even their bunny hill with tow rope is longer and better.
I go alone, today will be only the 5th time snowboarding, it is slightly closer. I have no complaints with PK because I don't know what I don't know. Tried alpine one night and it was a sheet of ice. Only stayed for maybe 40 minutes and left, so it has always been PK. Shit I haven't even been on a lift yet, only the toe rope.

Go to Holly today. Just do it man. Trust in this Asian.


BTW: Lifts are easier than tow ropes. Holly has a really mellow yellow lift. Slow as heck and drops you off on a very flat unloading dock. Although I personally find when it unloads you that slow and that flat, it's harder.

15 minutes about. You take exit 101 Grange Hall Rd, turn right, then left on Dixie Highway when you see the Shell station to your right.
