I ski all over the US and loved this resort. The price for a lift ticket is very low compared to the US and Canada. There were not crowds - great spring skiing! I skied all day, by myself - no worries.

Ski season finishes in mid April. It really depends on the weather as there is no guaranteed any snow will be left that late in the season.
