Went skiing at Sunshine over the New Years holidays and really enjoyed it. We arrived just after 9am and the parking lot looked packed already! We thought that we would be in a huge lineup for the lifts and gondola ride to the top. Not so!!! They sure can move the people through the lines. Actually got on the gondola within a few minutes of lining up. Went with the family (2 kids ages 11 and 13) and found that the green runs were perfect for the youngest in our family. Did the ski out early in the afternoon (around 1:00) and then rode the gondola up to the top again. Found that the ski out is REALLY busy later in the afternoon and not much fun because you're just dodging people on a narrow run. The ski out is a run you can do from the top of sunshine instead of taking the gondola to your vehicle at the end of the day. The lifts were fast and we didn't really wait at the top at all. The greens are wide and there is a lot of room to move for novice skiers. Some nice challenging blues for beginners and intermediate skiers as well. Lots of picnic tables when it was lunch time and it was never a problem to find a place to eat. Kids loved it and we will come again.
