They say ski it if you can; partially for the challenge and partially if the weather allows. It is a resort with arguably the most challenging glade skiing on the East Coast with Paradise constantly making top 10 trail difficulty lists. Cool old school vibe. People are friendly no nonsense skiers. Drawbacks, they don't make their own snow so when the natural stuff is scarce, so are the trail offerings. They will sometimes close for a week or two to preserve snow back. But if conditions are good, it's hard to beat in the East!
Steeps are never groomed and the woods are always open so you get a more traditional ski experience.
It's the most uniquie ski resort on the east cost. It sets itslef apart with extreme train and old school infrastructure. I hope they don't change a thing.
No snow making. Narrow, non-man-made cut trails
Awesome throw-back mountain. When the conditions are right, this one is tough to beat. No frills but just down right good skiing. People are friendly and since it is up north and off the beaten path a bit the crowds are minimal.
Between the natural snow, the challenging and gladed terrain, the relaxed attitude and the type of skier's it attracts (skills, not show), it can't be beat!
Great terrain, natural snow, no grooming, empty trails, long runs for the east, good woods.
