There's also talk of another expansion, apparently opening up another few hundred acres or so of upper mountain terrain. IF that goes through it'll make it more enjoyable. Still won't have the snow of LL or Sunshine, but I've had some great powder days at Nakiska.
Very enlightening info, I wanted to try castle this year as well, ever make your way down there?
