I've gone over one of the busiest times of the year - Christmas - for the past 6 years. I can tell you the place can handle the crowds and make you feel like you're doing weekend skiing not holiday skiing. Somehow the resort absorbs the crowds so even at the base you don't feel like its the mayhem I've experienced at other places. I love that there's a terrain park that both snow boarders and skiers can enjoy and even though I ski I have never found the boarders to be overwhelming like they can be at other slopes. There's great runs for all of our needs - our teenage sons love the moguls and terrain park and I love the bowls at the top and back. The mountain is not as beautiful as Deer Valley but is my preferred place to ski. Worth trying if you've never been, and if you do go I'm sure you'll return!
