Tyrol Basin is a great ski experience for all skill level skiing. The runs are short but the intermediate and expert runs are fun, fast, and challenging. Great if you ski with friends that are beginners or intermediates because you can ride on the same lifts to accress both the easy and difficult runs. I have been skiing for 50 years, and I have skied all over. Even though I live a short distance from the fancier resorts with longer runs, I prefer Tyrol Basin because of the fun and diverse layout of the runs, the reasonable lift tickets, the excellent Tuesday and Friday night specials, and the incredibly helpful and friendly staff. I also find that the snow conditions tend to be better than the larger resorts, perhaps due to less skiiers. Even though I don't board, I hear from the boarders that the terrain park is awesome.
