It was going well until the subtitles just..stopped.
It's true..48 Trails and maybe 3 blacks. Last time I was there only one was open and it hardly qualifies as a "black". The walk from the parking lot is ridiculous. They have that awful "Cabriolet" faux gondola where you have to take off your skis and STAND up for the 2 seconds it takes to go up and back down the mountain. WTF is that? My daughter and I went there last year because college students got free lift and rentals and we agreed to never go back. And we went during the week. I wouldn't go near that place on a weekend.
Worst of all...Their chili STINKS. No ski resort should have bad chili! :-x That's inexcusable.
I guess if it's your local hill it's better than nothing but it's a 90 minute-2 hour drive to Mountain Creek for me so I might as well drive the extra time/distance to the Poconos or better yet, the Catskills.
One thing I do know is I had fun there today. It was mid-winter conditions and hardly anyone there. They still have a ton of snow.
The bulk of my skiing is mid-week, weekends are for skiing with the kids. I get a lot of weekdays off with my job, so it's perfect. As you know fun activities are much more enjoyable and errands are easier on weekdays.Almost any place is good midweek..that's why it's the only time I ski (and hike, camp, kayak, go to the beach, etc). Impressed they still have snow. Down here the snow has been gone for weeks.
please try this and report back, mister scott
