Skiing: First, must state that it was opening day the day we were there and we've never skiied there before. With that said,,, the mountain was fun! It was definatly a mid to moderate level skiing mountain at the most w/ no real expert or double black runs. We thought it had a good amount of runs for its acrage size with everything a run-of-the-mill skier needs to have fun. A person can pretty easily hit about everthing on the mountain in one full day of skiing. We don't have any children but it would be a great place for a family fun day! Good amount of low mt stuff for children. The terrain park was definatly lacking but again it was first day open and they didn't have a ton of snow yet? They need to have a better bar at mountain for post skiing warmdown. Would definatly go back when they get hit with some good powder!
Lodging: We stayed in Centennial at The Mountain View Hotel. It was very clean and nice with very friendly staff! The hotel had a package deal with discount ski tickets which were nice. The hotel also offered discount theater tickets for the play house in town at the Trading Post dinner theater. We ate a good meal at the trading post and attended the very fun theater show that night. The hotel had a coffee shop that was very nice and they offered full breakfast that was excellent! Would definatly stay there again!
