My wife and I just spent four days at WP. Being a boarder, I was apprehensive about going after reading the negative reviews about the flats. Now having been there I am not sure what the fuss is about. We did not do every run, but we rode many of them. We found minimal flat spots and were able to avoid them. All parts of the mountain were enjoyable. It was mid March and occasionally we ran into a crowded run or a long line, but for the most part everything was great. The upper lifts had shorter lines, and it was easier to find runs with fewer people. The runs off of the Panoramic Express lift were awesome!
