Leased Liked Resorts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am curious as to what resorts or ski areas you do not like and why?

My 2 are Bristol Mountain in NY and Seven Springs in PA. Bristol mountain is too icy and they always have the snowmaking equipment blowing in my face whenever I go. The layout also is weird. The green runs all wind around on narrow traverses around the side and it freaks me out feeling like I will go over the edge.

Seven Springs has a nice layout especially for beginner and intermeidates, but the place seems way too crowded and out of control. There are zillions of teenagers not paying attention to anyone around them and the staff I found is very rude. Also, it seems like people don't go there just to ski but to visit the resort and complex itself, which is ok, but too many people get drunk and ski around.

I don't about anyone else but I'm def not wealthy enough to lease a resort for the whole season, so I can't really comment on resorts I've leased that I like.

I think the folks that are running Killington need to read "How to win friends and influence people" again.

Perhaps you'd feel safer if you stayed in the lodge, or better yet, in the city.

The mountain seems to have fairly consistent pitch side-to-side. How would you propose the green runs go, if not switchbacks or cuts across the mountain's general fall line?

I kinda like Bristol. I've only been there during the day but here's a cool picture of the place at night.
