Pros: Abundant snow, few rocks, lots of intermediate terrain

Cons: Lack of expert runs, no nightlife, access road is long

I've been going to Pomerelle for about 25 years.  It's about a hour from Twin Falls, and you have to drive up through Albion and about 10 miles of windy mountain road to get to the base area.  The road got paved a few years ago, and that improved access.  The mountain is hit hard with snow, and the gentle grassy slopes don't need much to get good cover.  I think I've hit a couple of rocks under the triple, but it's rare to get a core shot on this hill.

The hill is pretty flat on the edges.  Think of it as a horseshoe, with the steeps in the middle under the triple chair.  There is a wide open bowl in the middle that has one steep drop-off.  It used to be scary on 205 GS skis, but on modern powder skis it's a bit of a snooze.  The only run that gets my blood flowing now is to turn left at about chair 13 on the triple.  That gets you some tasty tree skiing that can be track free even on the weekends.

Milk Run is a superb beginners run, and if you go slightly west of it, there is a crazy little run called Yahoo.  It's got lots of wind shaped cornices and wowies, and the kids go nutz in there.  The lodge has been unchanged since the last century, and is adequate on all but the most crowded weekends.  If you come into the parking lot and see school buses, you know tables will be scarce in the lodge!  If you're looking for hairy steeps, go elsewhere.  If you want to take a family of intermediates or beginners to a fun hill, look no farther.
