Full review

I'm an intermediate skiier, which this resort is great for. Mountain run is a whopping 3.2 miles, and sports some great terrain. The ski-in, ski-out is fantastic, and store your skis overnight even before you get to the lodge. The bars are great, and so is the shopping. If you can afford it, I highly recommend staying at the Village. I've been there 4 separate days, and have yet to have the lift open for night skiing. The winds are high, so the upper lifts close a lot. Beginners might get annoyed that the green runs are in upper elevation, which is windier and sometimes closed. The staff are really nice, and when we went late last year, the place was empty and I got private lessons for the public price. I'll be back again.
