Pros: night skiing (super new lighting), high speed lifts/small lines, beginner to high intermediate (very gradual progression), 5 TERRAIN PARKS!!!!

Cons: No steeps, no glades.

They installed new lighting this year and have the best and most lighting around (75% of the whole hill)

The terrain parks are awesome and well maintained, a groms park, intermediate park and an expert park (60 foot jumps, 18 foot pipe, air bag, rails and boxes galore)

Food is good and not way expensive.

Lots of good terrain for progressing anyone from green to intermediate blue.

Pros: High-speed lifts; bumps; good snowmaking; relatively uncrowded

Cons: No glades; no off-piste; not much variety; no night skiing; it's Ontario

Nice hill for Ontario. My ski club uses this hill as the "training hill" for most coaching. I've had maybe 60 days there in my life. You'll find the pitches on Mt. St. Louis are good for beginners, while Moonstone caters to more intermediate skiers. No steeps, glades, or off-piste. In fact, on the one "powder day" I had at MSLM, they sent the groomers out by about noon to flatten all the new snow. icon13.gif There are, however, a couple of bump runs during part of the season. 

 

The vertical, at around 600', is a bit less than Blue or any of the Collingwood hills, and the pitches are all flatter, but the hill is much closer to Toronto. On another positive note, four of the lifts are high speed, which gives the mountain a massive upload capacity. I never found it overly crowded - I think the most I ever waited was about five minutes for a lift. Blue, in contrast, gets absolutely ridiculous. And everything about MSLM beats the hills in Toronto by a significant margin.

 

MSLM is perfectly adequate for developing one's skills through to the beginner and intermediate level. Even low advanced skiers can get some good development out of the bumps. It's definitely worth spending time at MSLM to develop your skills before heading out on that big trip out West. 

 

And if you do find yourself bored at MSLM and have no interest in doing drills or improving your mogul skiing, you can always cross over to the other snowsport (be it snowboarding or skiing). Suddenly those greens will seem pretty steep again!

Pros: Terrain ParkS Half PipeS Moguls

Cons: No Steep runs Busy Family Oriented

MSLM

The hill is the 2nd best ski resort in Ontario after Blue Mountain. But has one of the best terrain parks on the East coast. Junk Yard is a terrain park on St. Louis side and is more oriented towards beginners to intermediate terrain park skiers. Don`t get me wrong though there is some quite challenging features in the park. The Outback park is on the Moonstone side and is a advanced to expert skiers park with massive jumps and unbelievable features. The Half pipe here is the best with huge walls a the pillow thing is at the end for people who like to go crazy with their tricks. Over at Junkyard it is very small and one side gets covered in ice so it`s best to stay away from it. There is also a couple of mogul runs which are quite decent if you like moguls depending on the time and day you ski them as at the end of the day they turn into ice with mounds on it. The actual runs are great for families and there is a great variety from more on the intermediate (black diamonds) to barely a slope runs for the kids.

 

The resort is great for Families as the teens can go do the terrain park for the day and the younger ones will have tons of fun on the slopes. I highly recommend it for families or terrain park skier. But if you are looking for steep runs go to Quebec, New York, Vermont, or Out west as there is nothing in Ontario that can compare to them in terms of challenging runs.
