It has a great variety of trails, excellent terrain, and several different peaks to select from. Also it is only a couple hours drive from us, so we can ski there on weekends as well.

The mountain terrain is varied, but it is not the wide open bowls like the west, especially in Vail. Best ski resort in the east!

great moutain, only if I don't bring the kids. Kids terrain is very poor and there are way too many a-holes that ski there.
