I grew up in Jackson Hole now I live in Vail. I spent last winter in Alamosa, CO and had a season pass to Wolf Creek. This was by far one of the best winters of my life. It seemed like we were geting 2 and 3 foot dumps on a regular basis. And yes it was crowded at times, but good luck not finding any crowds at breckenridge, keystone, or vail around christmas and new years. It seems to me like that guy who said that it was crowded and cold needs to grow a pair and realize that sometimes you just need to sit in the snow and eat lunch. If you want someone to always have a table for you then go to aspen.
