Buena Vista has a friendly and competent staff. The Nastar skiing is a blast.
I just wish the runs were longer but they are varied.

Full review

I have skied Buena Vista a number of times and have really enjoyed it. The chalet is old fashioned and filled with nice people ready to get you skiing, feed you when hungry (good food prepared fast) and even play holiday music for you on the piano. The runs are short but varied. The atmosphere is great. There is a good mix of young and old so you will feel at home no matter what your age or skill level. BV is nicely laid out so beginning skiers tend to ski one area and more experienced skiers are on a much bigger area. Both areas offer some variety which seems to nicely keep the lift lines running without much wait time. A local group of ski enthusiasts have started Nastar Skiing so you can challenge yourself by racing a slalom for time. Your times are compared with others locally, statewide and nationally. It is all about fun and the skiing.
