Our family visits DMR every year it is possible. We have however taken other trips to other CO destinations, but found that we keep returning to DMR. We have taught our children to ski on this mountain because of the relaxed atmosphere. The night life isn't our thing, therefore this is a great location for the family oriented skiers. The thing we are most impressed with is the friendliness of the DMR staff. We became seperated from one of our children (at the time 7 year old) and we were very impressed with the way our daughter was assisted. We will continue our yearly trek to DMR for years to come.
