Variety of terrain, employees, lift lines
Too much grooming, nightlife
I skied 25 days last year mostly on weekends and conditions were great. Altitude is lower than Vail making the winter days a bit warmer. Lift lines are short and it is very easy to get around the mountain. Best priced hamburger at the Chop House. The boast that they have the most grooming equipment in the country, I'll let the reader determine the pros and cons to that. Beaver Creek is a bit pricey but both Edwards and Avon are close by.
