Andes is a good place for beginners. But if you are ready for longer and steeper runs, i would recommend another resort. I was there recently, and I bombed the whole hill and still hit the knuckle of the jump. So the people who make the terrain park obviously have no idea what they are doing. Quite honestly, when I went to Andes it really made me miss Buena Vista. BV Is just so much more friendly...
