abundant snow, steeps,friendly locals, nice lodging, nice town,long runs
Cold,, steep, awkward lift system, a lot of hike to terrain, expensive
I visited twice in the winter of 2011. I camp in the parking lot in a truck camper. I got some great skiing here and some good dumps. I like a challenge and ski the steeps pretty well but I found some of this hill to be over my head. Everyone was hiking alot to get to the super-expert terrain above timberline. I never had great visibilty and I didn't try this option. I ski backcountry and am not too fond of paying to hike. The base village is cool with a modern bar in the hotel and a great little pub (local Hero) down a side street.
