Plenty of groomed areas
Easy to get caught up on one side of the mountain
I am an avid snowboarder - have been for over 15 years! I've been to places like Heavenly, Squaw, Boreal, Arapahoe, Breckenridge, etc. and this place has a little something for everyone weather you are a beginner, intermediate or expert. It does tend to get a little crowded on weekends and it is somewhat agitating when there are people just sitting around on the slopes (especially ones that are too advanced for their skills) but that's to be expected at any ski resort. This is where I first learned to ski and snowboard, and it will probably be up there as one of my favorites (along with Arapahoe).
Be weary however that though the conditions are oftentimes great, when they are not it does tend to get extremely icy and not for the feint of heart, nor the inexperienced. All in all a great place to take your family, friends, or enjoy the sites that Northern California has to offer.
