Liberty has a good terrain park to learn on, which is what I did, but for any really serious terrain park person this is not the place to go. They do have some great jumps and lots of grind rails to go on but no halfpipe or such. I say this resort is crowded because it was packed because it was president's day weekend and the Obamas just happened to be skiiing that day so there were ALOT of people. The lifts are a bit slow becuase they constatly stop the lift for people and it's not the quickest system. But, on the other hand, Liberty does have some nice trails, especially for beginners, their green trail like Sneaky Pete is good for someone to learn on. They also have some nice moguls in 2 places for you to try out. Overall this is probably the best place to go for a family trip over the weekend but not for people who are looking for insane slopes or a good nightlife.
