Great for beginners, not crowded, tubbing was fun too. Pizza on the hill was great for vegetarians. Also a great little market called Z's market and deli.

A great ski and snowboarding resort for beginners and advanced people. It has great staff who help you when you need help. If you get hurt the staff will bring you to safety. It also has many trainers who will train you privately.
