If you are looking for a laid-back, friendly, uncrowded ski resort to hang out with friends or family this is your place. If you need a variety of nightlife or restaurants/shopping, make this a day trip from Jackson instead. The skiing was good (although only 3 inches of new snow all week unfortunately), the views are great, and the lack of people and lift lines was hard to believe. After the lifts close we saw fewer than 50 people milling around. Most amenities are family or group oriented. Our boys enjoyed tubing ($8/hr), broomball on the ice rink (equipment at activities desk), blackjack and texas holdem at casino night in Teewinot, and Bingo night in Teewinot. They also enjoyed two days of ski school (both level 7) with instructors Bart (highly recommended) and Courtney where only 2 other kids joined them in their group and registration took less than 5 minutes. Restaurant food is good, just not much variety. Only 2 restaurants that allow kids (a third is Trap Bar for over 21) are open for dinner...a steakhouse and a pasta/pizza cafe. Other options are driving to Driggs (try the Royal Wolf) or a barbecue in a yurt for about $35 adults and less for kids. Love to try this place again sometime with some fresh powder and a group of friends.
