price is right/ The mountain is beautiful.
weather is unpredictable (ice vs snow)
Go early and get ahead of the mid morning rush. We skied the first part of the day with our children ages 9 and 11. They had been in ski school 2 years earlier and remembered everything. Its all about the weather. We had a great first day the second day was a little icy. But the management team were doing all they could to blow snow. Once we found the hidden slope it was like we had the mountain all to ourselves.
