Easy to get to, lots of variety of terrain.
Soooooo crowded. Long long lift lines.

I haven't been to WB in about 20 years and boy, has it changed. It still has all the great terrain and good snow, but I was really unhappy with the crowds and the time I had to wait in lift lines. Other mountains handle this better with more 6 person lifts and more lifts serving the top, not WB. There's pretty much one lift for any where you want to go. On day 1, we got 10" of new snow. Great, right? Well, yes and no... yes because I got one run in nice snow (despite being in line early for the lifts to open). This is because the entire top half of Both mountains was closed until after 11 am so they could bomb for avalanches. Necessary, yes, but it caused massive lines and unhappy people. Other resorts so this at 6am and open on time. Frustrating to say the least.
