It helps to be a mountain goat
Pros: Nice Scenery at the top, huge downhill throws. On a clear day you can see forever, or so it seems. The gondola ride is well worth the money and it takes you to the top pretty quickly. This course plays differently that just about any other course around. We played during the week and were sharing the course with one other group. If you want solitude, this course has it. We found the signage quite good and the course was easy to follow.
Cons: This course plays differently than just about any other course around. A gust of wind picks up your disc and carries it 500 feet past the target. You throw the disk just a little too high and it is 100 feet past the target. There aren't enough Es in STEEP to describe how very steep this course is. You are basically throwing your discs off a cliff, with the baskets very far below. If you play the hyzer right and the wind doesn't get you, you can get a par. Other than dealing with the altitude there is nothing technical about this course. The fields are wide open and have almost no use of the trees that are there. We lost 4 discs each. Searching for discs here is not like searching for them elsewhere. Once you've gone past the disc going down, it is hard to get motivated to climb back up to look again, especially when you are using throw away discs.
Other Thoughts: The best part of this course is launching discs off into space. If that is what attracts you then buy some used discs and launch them into space off hole one and ride the gondola back down. We had an interesting hike down playing the holes, but other than a couple really good flights on a couple of throws, I found nothing satisfying about playing this course. Once you figure out how to make the low throws required to be successful on this course, it is not all that difficult. The terrain is VERY difficult.
