Forget about skiing on a weekend or holiday, unless you like skiing in traffic jams, and waiting in long lift lines. IntraWest packs the place with discounted hotel and lift packages. People everywhere, on the slopes, in the bars, and little ones under the age of 5 darting in and out. Forget it.
If you go: buy a mid-week package. The slopes and restaurants are uncrowded. It's no Whistler, Vail, or Aspen but mid-week you'll enjoy the place.
Bring your woolies it's cold in them there hills.
