This was a great place for a beginner like me. My instructor was excellent. My husband was a little bored but that was because he wouldn't leave my side. We stayed at Mountainside condos and absolutly loved it. The price of our stay was very affordable and the lift passes at Sol-Vista were very reasonable. We went to Winter Park which if very crowded compared to Sol-Vista. The staff at Sol-Vista was very helpful and friendly. I only skied the beginner slope and one green slope but it gave me lots of confidence to continue. We will definitly return to Sol-Vista next year.
