Great place if you can afford the ski experience. Locals have changed and the area doesn't seem as friendly as 20 years ago. Miss the ski bum workers that have been replaced by International young people that, for the most part, are only here to make money to take back home. They seem lonely and there isn't the jovial, "everyone skis" attitude that used to be in the valley.
Food is excellent at almost all restaurants and there are places to dine to fit every budget. (not that the Macdonalds crowd can afford to come for even a day)
Apre' ski is not fun and there is something missing in that area. Not enough live entertainment to fill out a week's stay and not anything worth mentioning. Seems to be missing the zest that was once made this area legendary. Too bad!
