I was there on a Sunday in the middle of winter break on a 9 inch powder day, and the crowds were non existent. The resort is very easy to navigate. The powder was unbelievable, although after noon you would have to search for freshies since most of it was skied out. This resort is a locals hide out and now I understand why, it is affordable it has some great terrain and it is very close to Denver. The food is good and the service is grade A+++. Very nice people and good place to avoid all the ritzy, gaper skiers that hit the other resorts.
