  • I love the Basin. It's gotten busier since word has gotten out. Generally speaking, parking is free and easy (unless you roll in at 10:30 like a filthy casual). Food and drink is reasonably priced. The mountain is on the smaller side; the upside to that is that the runs are just long enough to be fun and challenging without making you stop 3 times on the way to the lift. I can do laps all day here without feeling pooped. Also: practically no catwalks or green runs. This place is for locals that know how to ski/ride.

  • This was my first experience Skiing and boy it was so much fun! I had taken ski lessons and the trainer was friendly but me and my friends felt that she was little slow and could have showed us little more skills. I saw lots of kids skiing and having lots of fun. There were three different levels out of which 2 were truly professional and 1 was for bigger. I would defiantly go again. Don’t forget your SUNGLASSES or you would have to buy cheap one for 30$.

  • The Legend! If you want to ski/ride, this is the place, no frills, no escalators, just a lodge with good beer and a mountain with good slopes. Never a bad day at the beach, only good days with varying amounts of awesomeness. Montezuma bowl is on the backside and is the bees knees when there is some fresh snowfall. Also, the hiking terrain is worth it, oh so worth it. Plus, in the spring, this place has the best pond skimming. All natural pools filled with glorious mountain snowmelt. Enjoy!!!

  • One of my favorite ski areas. But what is with the early season lift lines? Doesn't everyone know there are other ski areas open now??!? At least the 6th Alley Bar has some good drinks when the lift lines are too long.

  • The best experience we have had as a family. Lift operations, scanners, people on the mountain and park crew were all awesome. We love the fact that they open early and close late, this is our new home for preseason and late season ski/snowboarding.
