I have never seen as many mosquitos in my life as when we tried to go for a hike there in summer. Total disaster!
Yeah, there's a lot of standing water around there...
It would be a very lovely place to ski, though! Many years ago my dad tried to ski there and was told that skiing was not "wildlife-dependent recreation" and thus not allowed. Some internet browsing makes it seem like skiing is not only okay but encouraged, so maybe he just bumped into someone cranky. I'd like to give it a shot this winter.
Talk to Aims, he lives across the street and definitely has the skinny on that place.
