Wow! What can I say that hasn’t already been said? This mountain is wonderful. In my opinion, the best skiing in all of Utah. Amazing trails, amazing off trail skiing too. High speed lifts get you to the top fast. Incredible views and incredible snow. I’ve been coming here since I was a little kid, and will always come back!
Top flight slopes, quick lift times, and dispersed crowds even on a Saturday. Definitely a top tier spot for skiers coming to the area. We spent all morning and afternoon skiing, and we barely waited more than 5 mins at any lift. Views are spectacular, and you can find ever level of challenging run here. Highly recommend to all skiers
