What you see is what you get! There are a couple of slopes you can't see in the picture but thats it for vertical. A sister "resort", Brandywine, is located about 5 miles up the valley. Same vertical- they do have a park and some jumps but you're pretty much skiing laps all day. Our closest good skiing is Holimont or Holiday Valley in Western NY, south of Buffalo, and then Seven Springs and Hidden Valley east of Pittsburgh. The western NY areas do get some exceptional lake effect snow- its not hard to be knee deep in the woods. They also have good variety with many steeper trails. Not bad for a day trip plus the price is pretty good and they do a fair job of spreading out the crowds. I pretty much stay away from Boston Mills / Brandywine unless the kids want to go for a day and prefer the cross country skiing when available. When it comes down to it, you ski what you've got! And search the internet for pictures of deeper snow and steeper slopes.
