A great resort with some of the world's finest terrain and snow. If you are all about modern lifts and fancy eats, maybe stick to Aspen.

What a mountain to ski! If you are willing to earn your turns you will be rewarded! I have fond memories of mid week skiing 50cm plus pow all day, no crowds. Locals are friendly as well!

Although the skiing was not great due to end of season - spring conditions, the activities planned at the hill were a blast - great music, reasonable drink rates and friendly staff everywhere we went across the hill - will definitely be back!

Great anytime but sweet for sure right now! In regular years March was the historic month for the most snow but with 37 feet of snow a year every month is fun! Enjoy!
