I will say in the evening they start to close certain lifts which forces a convergence of riders onto the same trails. I did one night run and left, trails were over crowded. Other than that, no complaints at all. I will be revisiting!
yup it's 10 bucks extra i was going there, somebody actually stopped me, that was a bit weird, asked for a pass or something, i was like `here` he goes no this is extra....

along with mountain creek, camelback is one of the smallest mountains we have here
last week sunday i was there it snowed a lot that day so that was good but man camelback's runs are so short, you get down in like two seconds... i always found that to be annoying especially if you don't have patience like me

2014 Never Summer Proto HDX 158cm

Yeah, the runs there are pretty short but they get the job done. I usually stick to PA resorts. I'm working my way up. Started off going to whitetail & liberty, which has limited trails. Whitetail has 25 & liberty has 22. Camelback has 33, but I think my next visit will be to blue mtn, which is the highest vertical drop in PA.

However, I will say I had a blast at Camelback and it is def my fav thus far!

Enjoy Camelback and Blue while you can. Because honestly once you venture out of the PA resorts and hit up VT or Maine you wont want to go back. Not dissing Camelback, because I like the PA spots too, but you will be talking about going from 33 trails with a 800 ft vertical drop to 90-115+ trails with 2000+ ft vertical drops

Being that I own my own business and I am a father of 5, those VT & Maine trips will happen MAYBE once a season. I live in Baltimore, so PA is a lot more accessible. I can make a day out of it with AT LEAST 8hrs of hill time. However, I will definitely be setting up a trip for myself next year, most likely to VT, for that exact experience you describe above.

Was at Camelback yesterday
Snow was wet but soft and the new park setup is pretty fun.
Going on Sunday if anyone wants to meet up.

Emerica should make snowboard boots
