When compared to other local places, Coffee is definitely the underdog. Obviously it has less terrain, but what terrain it does have is fun, and can even be challenging. There are long cruiser runs, and legit steeps. The resort itself is unpretentious, and classic. It's not Afton or Welch. Think more like Red Lodge vs. Aspen. The lifts are original, slow, and have no cushioning. There's no fancy Apres Ski, but the bar it does have is tiny and fun. The staff are locals, and real. So have a beer in the parking lot, and enjoy one of the best kept secrets around.
