Lots of other activities available, multitude of lodging options, great place to visit in general
Just a few trails, weather usually very warm
Ober is a great place for first-timers. Night skiing Monday through Friday is super cheap, lessons are cheap, and if skiing or snowboarding turns out not to suit you there is a ton of other stuff to do in the area! Oh, and there's a new tubing park now as well! I can't wait to try it!
