Consistent snowfall all morning. About 5-7" so far and not letting up any time soon!

#PunxsutawneyPhil forecasts six more weeks of winter. Not sure how accurate a rodent meteorologist can be but well take it!

A view from the base this morning. We have cloudy skies and cool temps with a chance of snow later today. Time to get some runs in before the "big game".

It was a great experience being my first time sking The only thing that annoyed me were the employees. We were about to leave when we remembered we had forgot something. My kids went in first and the guy fitting skis said to them in a rude voice what are you doing you need to be outside. The instructor was also extremely rude only because it was our first time and were having a difficult time. He was yelling at us. When we were on our own he came up next to me and flicked snow at me with his ski. Then he did it another time.All the employees I met were very rude. Do not recommend coming here.

China Peak is such a great mountain! I bought the snowbomb pass and was reluctant to drive the 6.5 hour trip to China Peak from Reno but it was well worth it. The drive was beautiful! I used my pass for boarding on Sunday and stayed in their lodge that night so used one of their stay and ski free tickets the next day (awesome deal!) The mountain was wonderful. It may seem small on the map but they have LOTS of GREAT RUNS for boarders and good snow to ride in the trees. The conditions were perfect and their runs are groomed very nice and they still have lots of untouched powder. I got there at around 2 in the morning on Saturday and slept in the car for a few hours before the lifts open and they were doing lots of work up on the mountain prepping for when they opened. The staff was very friendly and the mountain wasn’t crowded on Sunday. Monday was slow so it was super awesome to have so much of the mountain to myself to enjoy my ride. The lodge isn’t upscale but it met my needs just fine and for a free ticket, it was a good deal. They do provide bedding and towels etc but the bathroom and shower is down the hall which wasn’t a big deal. The only two complaints I have is the lodge doesn’t have microwaves so it made it tough to heat up my own food (heating pads work great for sore muscles and heating canned soup! ) We also stayed in room 108 which is next to the water heater generator, it did kick on a few times while I was there, if you like that sound to buzz you to sleep then great! If not I would get a room a little further away.

We live in Santa Cruz, My husband is a diamond skier, while I like to stick to the blue or green dots. The Skiing offers every run for everyone without getting boring. The Inn is awesome, I give it 5 stars, It provides all the amenities to conduct business. And the staff is so friendly and helpful. They keep the whole lodge heated so when you get done with snow skiing you can change into a T-shirt and pants and enjoy the very fun and lively Bar. They offer great deals if you can take off during the week only $39.00 lift tickets and if you stay at the inn they give you 1 or 2 free lift tickets depending on your room size There are NO lift lines are lines anywhere. The Inn offers everything a person who is in self employed, like me could need. It does not have all the bells & whistles a 5 star hotel would have but for us simple folks we loved it and plan on making this Vacation an annual winter vacation. It's the best fun and bang for your buck out there. Ill be recommending this place to all my family and friends.

Went for a half-day, first time boarding in years. Rented board and boots, spent sometime on the base remembering how to stand, stop, turn and such. Took the lift to the summit, as soon as i get off the lift one of the straps on my bindings breaks. Of course they dont keep extra bindings at the ranger station, that would make sense. So i had to wait an hour for a snowmobile to come pick me up, by the time we got back to the rental shop, there was only 30mins left till the park closed, whats the point of that. $90 to ride a lift then sit in the snow all because they couldnt properly inspect the equipment or have a repair station on the summit. They offered me a voucher for free rentals in the future, but i dont plan to ever return so i just gave it to a random person.

I'll start off nice. The customer service was excellent and very kind. Ok now that that's over lets get to the issues I reserved two nights in a Standard room at a little over $200 a night in room 209. When I first approached the room the door was open. I thought that was strange. Later in the night I noticed that that door doesn't shut very well from the sound of my fiance opening and closing the door four times in attempts to get it to close and stay closed. There is bad odor in the room that you will get used too. I took a shower that night and the water went from scolding hot to freezing cold. Not very pleasant. I also took another shower the next day around 11:00 am and it did that same thing. I was awoken to the sound of a rodent scratching in the wall right behind the bed. This was very annoying. I was then distracted from the sound of mice in the walls to a sound of a vacuum cleaner running. This was probably around 8:00am. Thank goodness that didn't last long and seemed to scare the rodent away. So we can gather the walls are very thin. They offer WIFI. only in the lobby. And it is a horrible connection. I could hardly load my email, I was the only one in the lobby at the time. So mass usage is not the excuse they will give you as to why it is slow. I went to my room around noon and when approaching the door i noticed it was open..... I made sure the door shut and locked before i left that morning. I asked the maid if she had been in my room.... She said yes. Why would the maid be in my room when i had the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the broken door knob? She said she didn't see on the her list the our room was not on there....?.... Strange. Everything was there and I'm sure it was a stupid mistake but the fact that she did shut my door or make sure it was shut makes me upset. ANYONE could have walked right in STOLEN my belongings. Very Very unsafe and insecure. I decided to go home that day and not stay the last night. There are other places near the ski resort you can stay at and would have to actually be worth $200. Because at the Inn at China Peak for $200 a night you will get a stinky room, broken door handle, hot and cold shower, your privacy and security being breached, slow WIFI and thin walls to share rodents. Did I mention the sand on the bed too?

Very chill. Cool old place ,just for warning. If staying at the Lodge. Do not stay in room 108, It's next to a generator Room that runs off and on all night. And it is very loud. But if you enjoy the sounds of a purrrrring motor it is a dream..
