West Mountain Reviews & Tips (2)

Went to West on 3/16/14. It is a nice place, people are friendly, lodge has been improved, no lift lines and long trails. We were a little dissappointed that some of the trails were not groomed after a thaw and freeze a day or two earlier. Ths caused treacherous conditions on some of their trails with big frozen ruts, almost unskiable and dangerous. Other than this a good experience.

Went to West mountain with my family and there is a good mix of runs for all the family to enjoy. Lift people are very friendly and helpful.
