The picture is from the outside of the park facing the lodge. The tables are much nicer now that there is some angels to it, a lot easier to do stuff on. It is nice now, they put a lot of work into the parks, even hiring a park crew to take care of it constantly. And yes, the place is called the local s&$# hole, because that's what it is. Yes, the snow is almost always artificially made but we just got a couple inches the other day so it's got some softer stuff on top but definately has ice under. If you need to know anything about it, let me know, I am up there almost every day.
