I am sad to hear people talking negatively about the Ski Apache Staff. I can tell you know after 20 years of skiing and Ice hockey, that the only Bad Experience I had skiing was in SLC, UTAH, the whole town seems to be ticked off about life anyway. Ski Apache is one of the best places I have ever skied on and the place I was taught the sport, by one of the best. I live in TX, 15 hours away and the drive is half the fun. I have never heard a negative about Ski Apache until these posts. Seems like the only people complaining are those who cut in line and ride over your skis at base or slip previous day passes. Support this resort, visit the town and have fun, it is the best-valued ski resort I know.
