Lodging: All Lodging has mountain views. We stayed at the Cliff Lodge. The photo is from the lobby of the Cliff Lodge. The rooms were extremely spacious and their ski\snowboard lockers became a now requirement for future resorts I visit.

Terrain: ... This from an advanced riders perspective... The Cirque offers amazing terrain that you could loop all day on a powder day. Everything from trees, chutes, open bowl can give you that grin from ear to ear. The Thunder Bowl and Peruvian Gulch were closed due to avalanche possibilities. Gad 2 lift offered some nice tree runs that you could loops 5-10 runs to get your

Restaurants: Good food. We ate at three restaurants (2 in Cliff Lodge and 1 at Tram base). All were decent, but could improve. Overall I didn't have any complaints and thought their pricing was average.

Would I return (as asked by the snowbird follow up survey from management)? Absolutely, yes.
