family friendly, easy to get to, discounts
crowded, trail variety
The snow conditions in mid-December were great. The trails are well-lit at night.
There are not enough green trails for a beginner to practice on. The blacks are short and icy for the most part.
The Blue trails are probably the best trails on the mountain.
The Ski School is very good, but the Little Chief bunny slope is always too crowded and dangerous with people going way too fast and falling all over the place.
There are very convenient lodging and food in the surrounding area.
