Full review

Having skied Whistler, Revelstoke, and all the Rocky Mountain Resorts This mountain has some of the best accessible steep terrain ( upper bowls w/ chutes) with less crowds due to its remote location and mostly expert terrain. Colder temps means less snow but less likely hood of rain. The limited lift service makes the hard core work for the powder turns and keeps the snow longer for those who are fit and don't mind small hikes to get the snow. The upper mountain can only be reached by one lift at the base of the hill. Making the Gondola lift a choke point when busy on the weekends. Golden is a working class town with a transient population that is rough but the long term locals are the best people. Hotels are affordable. Eating out is basic. Shopping minimal. Its all about the skiing! Incredible Terrain everywhere! For a strong skier this place is legitimate.
