Visitor Reviews of Mount Lyford

Rossi from New Zealand writes:

Mt Lyford's got a friendly "club" feel to it though it's a family owned commercial field. If it's got good snow coverage then the terrain's great for advanced skiers; if not then it can be a bit limiting but will still suit intermediate and family skiers. The field rarely gets crowded even on weekends so first tracks can still be had on a Saturday afternoon after a dumping; off-piste terrain is pretty huge. All tows are poma or T-bar, exceept the top rope tow.
