Flash back to the 1980's - this is what resorts were before rails & half pipes. Beautiful wide open bowls, glades and runs. The steeps were just that and then some. The lower lifts were 6 person cattle cars that got you up fast to get as much vertical as the legs will allow. The back country here was massive - get a local to guide you on your first time out, lots of creeks & ponds/lakes. We ski/ride mid-week because there are no lines and crowds, but I heard that the crowds do come up for the weekend (like everywhere else). I am keeping my eye on the weather, 8-12 in of pow would make this place heaven on earth.
