Just got back. Snowed the whole time. The reported snowfall amounts were definitely inflated, but most are. Most of the slopes appeared to be expert. Even the blues were hard. I'm not a novice, I just don't like moguls on a board. This resort caters to the expert. There are only a few trails a novice can ski, and you can't even ski between them. Some of the greens are high on the mountain, accessible only by gondola. The town was great, food everywhere was top notch. I expect to pay a lot for food while boarding, I usually don't expect it to be good. It was here. The people who worked there were great and very helpful.
