Skied here last winter. Flew into Hayden for the same price the airlines were quoting for Denver. Took a shuttle from the airport. Did not need a car all week. I here people complain about the terrain. If you talk to people you can find most any terrain you would hope for. Snow is great. "Resort" is sleepy, but downtown is a lot of fun. You are not going to find a lot of college age party scene like in Summit. Free shuttles and buses around town are convenient.
