Here are some websites with info on visiting the area...





Buying a lift/lesson combo is the way to go. Buy in advance to save $.

You can rent ski clothing if you don't want to buy. Search the travel forums using the search bar just above your post for tons of information on clothing, lessons, lodging, activities.

Be warned. You will sleeping at 9600 feet. Do not be surprised if you suffer because of the altitude.

Drink lots of water for a few days prior to arrival, and once you get to town. Take it easy your first couple of days. Avoid alcohol for a few days too. The stores sell herbal remedy treatments - don't know if they actually help, but they certainly don't hurt! We usually take the Altitude Adjustment capsules, available almost everywhere. Reserve lessons in advance online. Dress in layers. Wear sunscreen.
