Check out the Rose Bowl for some steep and deep runs. We were there December and March and found Rip Saw lived up to it's name! Larkspur Bowl was nice too but not quite as steep. BC is very classy and certainly pampers you without the Vail hype. It's too far for day trippers so the crowd isn't too bad even during peak times. Gotta love this place and be sure to hit the leather sofas upstairs at the bar at the Saddle. Suishi ain't bad either! A definate return trip is in order for the Galveston gang. Hit the Coyote cafe afterwards!
