  • Amazing view from the top. Great chairlift and easy hiking. Food is awesome. For $5 more you will get a pass for chairlift & lunch at any of the restaurants in the resort. Loved it.
  • Lot's of terrain to ski! Many different bowls to get up in the powder. Check the map if you're not familiar otherwise you could be waiting a long time in lines at some places. (I seem to always get over to the far skiers' left and wait with 100 other people for the t-bar.) Many on-hill condos available and the village has many food options.
  • tried to get on the nonexistant t-bar 9 times. i made the guy fall :) p: (snail) he slipped it was delayed reaction cuz i never helped him up. also they would not let me zipline with my snowboard. i went snowboarding also my screamo music wuz distracting me so i fell on the huge jump
  • Rather ski here than in banff. Friendly staff, great slopes, and not nearly as crowded as banff ski hills
  • Wide open terrain. Unbelievable dry powder. Zero lift lines. Love this place.
