Full review

My buddy and I were at winter park for their first big snow. We went on a weekday, so it wasn't as packed that we had heard, but it was still fairly busy. If you are a strong skier, avoid the greens by the pioneer lift. Might as well be crosscountry skiing. For people who are upper intermediate to advanced, just skip winter park entirely and go directly to mary jane and the parsenn bowl for some ungroomed tree runs. Highlight of the day by far. Other than that, there wasn't a ton of variety on the runs and the food was ridiculously expensive.
