Pros: Great downhill distance throws, technical throws, amazing view!
Cons: Very hilly, not for the weak of leg.
Other Thoughts: So happy they have a course here. The locals seem to love it and care for it well. Watch out for mountain bikers as many holes in the woods are on mountain bike trails.

Pros: Beautiful Scenery, fun Shots, Decent Variety. Loved The Long Open Drives, But The Baskets Were Still Well Placed. Decent Skill And Difficulty 18 Hole Course WIth An Excellent Course Map You Can Get From The Lodge
Cons: Bring Your Stamina, You Are Walking Up And Down A Ski Mountain. Some Thick Grass And under Growth In Some Places. The Tee Pads Could Have Been Slightly More Permanent
Other Thoughts: very Fun Course to Play. Suitable For All Levels. Sure To Please.

Pros: 18 hole course played up, down and across a ski mountain.
- Parking, pro shop, concessions, restrooms, etc. - all the amenities you could want due its location at a popular ski mountain
- Terrific scorecard with colored course map available for easy navigation
- For being temporary/removable, the tee signs at each hole are great, giving a good map, plus hole distance/par
- Great use of the mountain - you're not always going straight up or down, as many holes makes good use of lines across the ski trails, either directly across on some flatter portions or diagonally across
- While many tees and baskets are out in the open parts of the slopes, the design was done to ensure you have some tees and pins tucked into the trees that line the trails - hole #7 is completely in a wooded patch going uphill
- Deceptively difficult - even the really short holes (some measure less than 200') are difficult to get down in 2, due to the elevation - you really need to crank into your drive to get it up some of the hills
- Many holes give a number of options for how to attack the basket - hole #2 offers a tight tunnel through two patches of trees or you can throw a big hyzer around the right patch - hole #10 lets you choose to fight with a low fade or try to get a high anny/OH over the line of trees on the left - hole #13 (which was probably my favorite besides the two listed below) tempts you with a low, tight tunnel or you can go high over the treeline with a fade or tomahawk
- Hangtime - Hole #9 is something you must experience if you can - 800' down a fairly steep ski trail creates some "WOW!" drives, but keep your eyes on your disc, as the long distance and treelines (but apparently no more halfpipe) can hide your disc easily - Hole # 14 is also terrific - while it's not nearly as long, it's also a soraing downhill on one of the (smaller) trails and you tee off from the platform of a ski lift - these holes are just super fun to throw, even if your drive isn't perfect
Cons: While there are a few things here, they're totally understandable given the land to work with. I think for being on a ski mountain, this course is pretty much as good as it can get.
- Tees are a bit shaky, with all of them (except #14, I think) being gravel/dirt which can create some rough footing
- I tend to prefer wooded courses/holes, so the abundance of "open" holes on the ski trails can get a bit repetitive
- Not many spots where a bad throw is overly punished - no OB or water and apart from the relatively few holes with baskets tucked in/behind trees, you can easily recover from a tee shot that went way short or to the side
- Walking up and down the slopes can wear you out
Other Thoughts: - Baskets gets pulled for ski season (usually early-mid November to March maybe?)
- Hunter frequently hosts festivals/events during the summer, which can either close some of the holes, alter them or just create congestion - that being said, it was fun to finish the round amidst their Celtic Festival with good food/beer
This is basically just a real fun course. Skot has done a great job getting this in to a high traffic location with a varied, challenging design. If play a round with you, you'll have a blast.

Pros: 1. Variety of open and wooded holes
2. Gravel tees
3. Tees signs show distance, par, and map
4. Makes excellent use of the natural elevation changes of the mountain
5. Unique holes
6. Scorecard with map provided
Cons: 1. Constant uphill and downhill walks
2. A bit difficult to find the first tee
3. Some long walks between holes
4. Tees are not uniform throughout the course
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course. I played just after the rain and the mud was very minimal which was a plus. This course is located at a ski resort and the setup really lets you know where you're playing. Hole 9 is an experience you won't get at you're local DG course. Having the signs with maps helped a lot because you can't always see the basket. Offers a good mixture of short wooded and open to long wooded to open holes. Very unique holes. 9 was from the middle of a slope to the bottom. Another you teed off from a lift station. All pars are fair and very reasonable. This course is very good. I understand that with it being at a ski resort permanent tees would be difficult to have but definitely a good addition. Probably not the best course for beginners. I would play this course again and would recommend it to others.
