PCMR is really a great place. First off, I've ot to give it up for the ski school team that got my friend and I to understand what we were doing, and most importantly taught us how to stop. In a few short hours, they took us from clueless to competent. We spent the next 2 1/2 days of our trip practicing on the Beginner runs and enjoying ourselves, rather than constantly crashing. We stayed on the green trails, but had a great time. It's a great place to learn, practice, and just have a good time. We also love the little village right there, with lots of shops and this solid pub / bar where the staff was amazing. Great ski resort, great village, kewl crowd. Love it!
