Definitely not for the "IN" crowd. You need to actually go to ski resorts to ski or board and not to lounge around to get the beauty of Powder. It's great for beginners and experts alike. It's never too crowded, people are always friendly and they have the best staff. Yes the amenities might be old and little dated, but you can take your own food and still sit by the log fire to defrost and gear up for the next run. It's by far my favourite resort to go to when I just want to ski and not be bothered with all the hassles.
