Small in terms of size. Lifts are slow. Not for the heavy duty skier looking for big vertical or extreme terrain. Absolutely fun for the family and an ego builder for beginner skiers up through advanced skiers. Friendly. If you want to see a REAL mountain town, Leadville is it. It is not a theme park atmosphere. Leadville is high. Be sure to get acclimated or bring your own bottle...of oxygen, that is.
