Kagura review by simonwb
This place was great! The dump the night before we went helped too.

The lifts start early 7:30 which makes for some nice early runs.

The placed itself is really wide which makes for a nice variety of scenery. Lots of really nice tree runs and the patrol seem to be very relaxed with going off the courses. We went on a Saturday and it wasn't that busy at all..

Another thing I realy liked about it was the restaurants were really cozy and had a really great atmosphere, plus the type of food depended on the place you went to.

This place is going to become one of my favourites..
Snow condition on visit: POWDER!!
Things I liked: Great variety! Lots of runs.. great snow
Things I didn't like: None come to mind..
