I'm sure there are others that have far more time on MRG than me, but based on my limited experience there, here it is:
-best skiing "atmosphere" of any place I've skiied in NE
-riding the last single-chair lift in N. America
-people in need of attitude adjustments tend not to go there
-limited snowmaking & grooming
-accessibility by car can be tricky in bad weather
-regardless of how "good" you are, you will feel like you are one of the worst skiers on the mountain
When in March are you going? Late March will likely be a bit sketchy, unless you get lucky with a fresh late season dump. Early March should be no problem, unless the season has been poor in general. I'm dying to go back, but it's just such a long ride for me. Another drawback is that 2 of my 3 sons only snowboard, so I can't really share it with them. I understand MRG's policy, and happen to agree with it. If my 2 sons had continued to ski and snowboard, it wouldn't be an issue for us. Maybe I'll try to swing up there just for the heck of it.
If you're serious about skiing, you should really do yourself a favor & go to MRG, even if it's only once for the experience.
