I used to LOVE meadows when I was little and first started to snowbord. Then has it became more into a resort the people going up boarding and skiing start to become realllly mean. A ski hit me (on purpose) waved then skied off. Almost broke my neck. Another time I had broken my knee and NOT ONE PERSON stopped to help. For 30 MINS!! Then I finally saw a ski patrol person and he helped me. I would NOT going to meadows. Go to ski bowl if they have snow the people who work there and go boarding or skiing there are soooo much nicer! I bruised my knee bone the first of the seaso and EVERYONE stopped to help. Plus it's not at crowded.
