huge variety of trails, lovely powder
easy to get lost, lessons are for beginners only
The Snow!! Gorgeous, fluffy powder everywhere. Nice, wide trails. Lots of variety to challenge every level. Pleasant base area and lodges with decent food & shopping. Lift lines moved along fairly well.
Town lift. It's a slooooow double with no footrest, so by the end of the ride (it felt like 20 mins) my foot was all cramped up from supporting the weight of my board. Also FYI it drops you at mid-level, not at PCMR base.
Parking: was completely full by 10AM on a Friday, even the paid valet lot. Just take the bus.
Lessons: I wanted to take the intermediate freeride clinic for boarders that's advertised on the web site. When I called, the operator had never heard of it, but told me I could sign up for a regular group lesson and assured me they would accommodate my ability level. Um, guess what, I got stuck in a group with folks who still had trouble linking turns. Total waste of $80 and an afternoon.
