I booked my packeage holiday through Skiworld about 2 months before travelling and flying with Air Canada on a one stop flight as it was £400 cheaper for me.
Arrived on Sunday 1am morning. Stayed in the Holiday Inn Hotel, which was less than 5 minutes to the main lifts and right on the main strip for shops bars, restaurants. Nice hotel room except for some outside room noise from drunken neighbours but only occasionally.
Well luck would have it I bought the snow that week as it was pretty dire for 4 weeks before and we had 120cm in 7 days whilst I was there.
The resort is big and happy to keep anybody going for weeks on end however it gets tracked out very quickly by everybody even kids.
I teamed up with an English snowboarding buddy so we were of advanced level which meant black, double black and off piste runs were our forte.
We were up every morning at 5am for Fresh Tracks, which is a superb deal as my hotel was room only so this was a no-brainer $20cdn for a buffet brekkie and fresh powder runs.
We were in the queue for 6.15am every morning waiting for the lifts to open at 7.15 and stacking up on food to last us the day.
Because it was either English half-term or Candian reading week for schools there seem to be a lot of people about, so there were queues for some lifts of 15 minutes but it was very civilised not like some French or Italian resorts were they queue jump.
The bars were lively, lots of good food in the village restaurants and for us Brits reasonably priced.
My snowboarding buddy had booked a longer holiday than me so he was able to soak up more of the incoming snow whilst I travelled back to the UK.
To put a sour note to the trip Air Canada bumped me off my flight and put me on GTE, which meant waiting until a seat was available on the next one, in my case the 3rd one.
2 hours and $800cdn redemption voucher later I was on my way home.
I tend not to visit the same resort twice but I know that for me there were too many skiers tracking out the fresh and creating hideous moguls so I don't think I'll be rushing back in a hurry unless I was cat or heli-boarding.
