Saturday was great. But after the 6 hour car ride with my friend and his gf we got there rented them some boards (first time) and on the first trip up they were kicked off the mountain... One of the ski patrol saw them attempting to stand for about ten minutes and came over and pretty much said dont ruin today for the other riders just leave lol. He was cool about it, it just sucked they came all that way for nothing. I still went riding though lol.

I was there all day Sunday and it was great. I was very surprised with the good coverage. The lower stuff started to get a little thin in spots towards the end of the day.

Hopefully they can salvage enough snow for next weekend.

I drove 3 and i wasn't dissapointed. I don't think any drive over 3 hours is worth the trip though.

I went one day; stayed overnight @ 4 hours. Glad I did it. The earlier in the year, the more worthwhile. It's also good to know early how falsely inflated you thought your skills were from last year.

Civic that sucked for you with ski patrol booting newbies but on the other hand considerate for others. Hopefully they got creds or cash back...

Went today. Snowing in the morning. Given that it was Tuesday, not alot of people.

It was alright. Pretty icy and bare in some spots. Middle of runs had the most ice so spent most of the day on the edges of the trails.

Advertised as 9 runs open but really felt like 3 or 4 short runs. Youre at the bottom in less than 2 minutes. Had fun but unless youre a season ticket holder not worth it.

I don't see them getting top to bottom anytime soon. All the trails near the K1 Lodge were barely covered. And I mean barely.
