For the love of all that is holy, please don't let them change their rules about no snow-boarding. No boarders zooming past, screwing up the snow, getting in the way, beaching themselves on the slopes like big, dumb whales and blocking everyone else - it was heaven. It's not like there aren't plenty of places for boarders to do their thing - please, please let skiers have at least one serene preserve! Of course, it didn't hurt, either, that the powder was amazing and the food and service was top class. A sensational experience - easily the best skiing vacation I've ever had in the States, bar none.
