I last visited 20 years ago and it's gotten better. The snow was amazing. We arrived in a blizzard on Sunday morning driving in from Durango. Skied the entire day and had a blast skiing the trees in Prospector Bowl. The next morning we awoke to 6" of new powder and it was still snowing. Headed back up to Prospector Bowl (didn't open till 10:30) and basically had that entire sid eof the mountain to ourselves the entire day. We rarely saw anyone but you could hear people in the trees hollering.

The views are amazing and what a cool little town.. The mountain village wasn;t there last time I came (what do thos people do for a living that they can afford those house??)

Everyone needs to ski here at least once in their lifetime.
