Length of runs, speed of lifts, awesome vistas everywhere you look, comfortable lodge, great bar
Limited terain park, overly family friendly, a waterpark on site
This was my favorite place to go boarding, and it was also the place where I first learned. Even once I had all the basics down and started broadening my horizons, there were plenty of runs to challenge my growing abilities. A number of the runs are lengthy providing a lot of opportunity to hone your skills on the way down without having to stop, trek back up, and do it again.
This is the best place to really just fly down a mountain and feel like you went somewhere. People are friendly and the resort is just off the highway. Though I can't vouch for the resent additions of a water park, several condos and so on. The last time I was there the only overnight lodging available was a family owned motel and a Super 8.
