We went at the end of the day to the top. What a great view! It's not an all day event, however it's a nice way to end the day after a hike.

Took a ride up the McCauley Mtn chairlift while on a trip to Old Forge. Very pleasant, peaceful and quiet ride. Nice views of Fourth Lake from the top. We even saw the PV Clearwater returning from an excursion.

The skiing is great - some easy and some difficult trails. Great snow and a good set of employees. A fun place.

Visited again this year! Beautiful sights and great staff. Did the 20 minute hike at the peak and relaxed in the chairs while the kids picked wild raspberries. Worth it every year!

Five Corners Cafe is very good as is Billy's (Italian). We like Keys Pancake House for breakfast.
