  • Pros: I love this mountain, it has great runs, a lot of tree runs which are a blast. Top resort I've boarded at on West Coast. Cons: I wish they would upgrade the Nevada side lifts, they are so slow. Food is expensive, which is expected. I recommend going off the mountain for lunch.
  • HUGE mountain with miles of skiing for those just beginning to us Black Diamond lovers. Go when snow is fresh. Base is low elevation and conditions deteriorate quickly. Great for summertime activities as well.
  • Wow is this place expensive. We took the gondola ride to the top and paid a fortune to get there. I suppose the views are worth something, but certainly not what we paid for 2 adults and 1 child (under 4 is free). The gondola itself was hit with little air movement, but was fun for the kids. Activities at the top are expensive though, and for kids are probably not worth the price unless they are 10 years old. You also can't purchase individual activity tickets. It's all-you-can-do, which isn't much when you see the lines.
  • Good place for mountain skeing and ice sports. Gondala is the favourite attraction among tourists . Restroom faculty is available. Wear good clothing as its pretty windy and chill at top.
  • So many activities to do here.. can spend a whole day easily.. go in snow season
