I have been and posted a full report with pics at the new message boards I have been frequenting...http://www.boardworld.com.au/forums/viewthread/26/
I had a good time.
It is opened daily right now from 5-10PM and the charge is $5 an hour for Mon-Wed, and $7/hr Thu-Sun for non-students.
The vibe was good.
I was asked to hit the beginner hill 2X before going to the main slope. I was very willing to do that, But was laughing inside.
Grand opening is August 29th, when at that time prices will change to half-day and full day passes, common to most hills. but I am told the pricing will stay close to the $5/hr or $7/hr range.
A ski and snowboard school is being created.
It took me a couple runs to start and figure it out, but I was very glad to be riding in August!
The surface material is interesting. I typed all about it at that forum, visit and check it out. You wont have to log in to read and view pics.
