It snowed the day that I arrived. The snow remained good. The runs were good and varied. This was late in the season (September) with not many skiers. It was like a private ski area.

If you are used to ski in the alps of Europe, this destination will not excite you, but it's as close it gets in the area. Overpriced accomodation and restaurants but decent skiing.
