This is a smaller mountain, and very family friendly. Lift lines were almost non existent. The trails are challenging enough with many options and skill levels. If you want something more economical and less crowded, this ski mountain is a great alternative to southern VT.

The above comment is correct its a transition time in this area, may be better to wait a little longer closer to late spring.
