Need to Know
Watch out for remnants of the ski area, especially if you venture off trail into the woods. There are lots of metal spikes and other detritus from the snow-making that could make for a nasty fall.
The trails are surprisingly clear given that the resort has been closed for over 10 years. Follow any of them up and enjoy a mellow ride back down.
Some more interesting skiing can be had in the woods between trails but the density of brush in a lot of places can make this challenging.
