We visited on Feb.23 and found a resort that compliments The whole Utah expierance. Although we expected a resort that would not be friendly towards anyone but expet skiers , we found that there is plenty of Groomed trails as well as challenging Expert terrain. We had visited Snowbird two days before and found it to be less user friendly towards intermidates than Alta. This was a definate departure from what we had expected.We did some hiking into the Catherine Area above the Supreme Lift and found an Excellent selection of expert trails which lead into some Treed trails that gave one the feeling that you were skiing a private resort.We arrived early that day and were greated by mountain staff that beconed us in to the building to share information about ourselves as well as learning about the MT.We were even interoduced to other employees as if long lost reletives very cool. The views terrain and friendlyness of the staff made us feel very welcome. We ate on the MT. that day and the food was excellent!
