49 was once a great local secret for great snow and a friendly atmosphere. But today, sadly, it seems it's being run on the cheap and is in sad decline. The lodge is careworn (to put it politely) and entirely too small for the mountain's...More

We've been quite fortunate on our visits to this mountain. 80% of the time we have received fresh snow and had opportunities to make fresh tracks through the trees repeatedly for multiple days in a row. The skiable acres are nearly as much as Crystal...More

I have been skiing here for decades and it breaks my heart to see what the current ownership has been doing to the mountain. It is a quaint little hill that has mostly green and blue slopes with nothing challenging in the way of steeps....More

Fun place to ski. Family friendly, affordable, ski terrain well developed. Grooming could be better at times.

The terrain at this resort is amazing and is good for all levels. We found bits of untouched powder right on the main slope. The thing that lets it down is the lift system. The lifts are all very old and are 2 seat chairs...More

This family resort offers every thing from beginner slopes to tight tree skiing with some steeps (if you know where to look). If you love the woods, it doesn't seem to get much better than this. Almost never a lift line (except on food drive...More
