One run, but no alternative! Got first tracks Saturday, crowded by 10am. Great fun, sun and snow. 2 hours and 6000 verticle feet skied. Will be back

This famous ski area is everything you expected. Loved topping the ridge and enjoying the vista as much as skiing the challenging terrain!

If you like a ski area that offers runs for all abilities, like not queuing (standing in line) for ski lifts, like friendly helpful staff, warm comfy lodges with great food and fabulous standard of lessons then this is the ski area for you! We have skied here for many years and love its variety of runs made even better by recent improvments. Very long ski season too. New lifts have improved the time to get up the mountain dramatically and a fab new'ish lodge at the top of the first lift is good.

One-of-a-kind, above-timberline skiing. Love this place for spring/summer skiing in jeans. Once-in-a-lifetime skiing experience on July 1, 2011. Price is right, too.
