Alpental is great on good snow days. The runs are steep, and you can find good tree skiing, drops, and fresh powder. There isn't much variety in the terrain, but what they have is great. Don't expect to find beginner terrain or groomed runs. The top gets windy, icy, and rocky which makes it difficult for intermediate riders/skiers to get to the fun parts of the runs.

If your group has advanced riders mixed with beginners, the beginners would have more fun at Summit West or Central, while the advanced riders will prefer Alpental.
