Pomerelle is a great community ski area. It has a great laid back family atmosphere, and if you are looking for a relaxing day on the slopes and happen to be in the area, it is definately worth a stop. It only has about 1000' of vertical, and none of its runs are particularaly challenging, but it is a great bargain and it gets absolutely HAMMERED with snow. Pomerelle might have some of the highest snowfalls of any resort in the state, and certainly a lot more than its neighbor to the north, Sun Valley. Somehow those southern mountains just snag the storms.
