Full review

We drove up from NJ in a snow storm, which was great for ski conditions, but not for driving! We spent about 5 days and had lots of snow. It was very, very cold - below 0 most days. And, the resort decided to make snow during the day which made riding the lift very unpleasant.

Ski school was adequate. I also used the daycare for my then 2-year-old, which was fine.

With 3 kids, we did not do much in the way of night-life.

I feel fortunate that we were there when there was a lot of snow -- it reminded me of Colorado.
