Chair 3 for a while but then it opened.
Liftline waits:

Kind of a long drive,but if you WANT to ski/board there, it is worth it.It's fun to board natural terrain that is fun and challenging,rather than riding a pipe/park all day jumping off stuff and dodging people all day long.
Hadn't been here since the late '80's/early 90's and I'm glad they made it through the fires of last summer.I felt like they really appreciated the people that made the drive to their area,and the snow was awesome to boot !
