Full review

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it Snooty and exclusive? Yes. But if you manage to check it out, you won't be disappointed. There are so many trails there and such a great variety that you will be blown away! It is like being in heaven. We went on a Thursday in February, so the lines weren't too crazy. It was easy to find a high speed lift and fly up the mountain. My daughter was a beginner and it was easy to find runs where she could build up her confidence. The village at the base of the mountain is super cool in that it has that swiss feeling to it with lots of cool architecture reminiscent of being up on the alps. Of course it is super expensive (at least in my book) so be ready to spend.
