Full review

PCMR is great if your into park but for the more inexperienced skier it won't be nearly as much fun. The backcountry terrain isn't very good, unless your willing to hike, and if you are willing to hike I still feel it's not worth it. The park is the real defining characteristic of PCMR, it's incredible. The resort has the biggest half pipe in the U.S. and as far as I know, the world (they supposedly have one in Colorado now that is equal in size though). The boxes, rails and the park in general are what PCMR really takes pride in. However, beginning skiers will hate this resort. All the beginner runs are just the run-off's from the higher lifts and are usually packed with people. The expert runs (Jupiter and Mcconkey's) are decent but nothing extraordinary. The village is cool but they don't have enough parking to accommodate everyone on the weekends (Stay at the Marriott Mountainside, they've got an underground parking garage and it's a minute walk before you reach the ski runs). It's overall a fun, not extraordinary resort that really prides itself in one thing: Terrain Park. At this resort everything else takes a back seat to this sole attraction.
