The employees were top notch - kind, thorough, safety conscious, and answered all of the questions from the entire group of us (10 family members). It was the most fun we've ever had as a large family.

How is the drive down from Silverthorne? Is it a mountain road with drop offs? How is the drive from Breckenridge? We are from the midwest and would like to take the route that is quicker but flatter. :)
