I think by giving it the 5.7 that you did you TOTALLY dicked the dog. The slopes are awesome if you can Ski Ripcord (37 degree pitch the steepest mogul tail in New England) you can ski any other slope in the country. With four sides to this mountain there is something for everyones style. Mt. Snow Has worked to create some of the best tree skiing in New England. They groom constantly and make great snow. They have many new high-speed quad chairs and they move people quickly. If you think that the mountain is crowded its cause you stuck in the lodge get out and move around. They even have a tubing park for the people in the family that dont ski. If you rated Mt. Snow lower than a 7 you are not seeing Mt. Snow get out of the lodge and look around.
