It's not as big as other nearby resorts, but it has plenty of great and varied terrain if you're up for a challenge, much of it above the tree line, as well as a kids' area. Views from the top are incredible on a clear day. No high-speed gondolas, but parking is free! A-Basin is the only ski place where I've seen slopeside tailgate parties. People here are fun and down-to-earth. Oh, and if possible, take the free tour, trust me. To sum it up: You don't come here for a spa treatment; you come here to ride.
