Lots of action stuff on East and West bowls. Rented a house in town with 16 people (8kids and 8 adults). Family time and it was great. There are also multiple hiking trails in the area. Great family destination for the outdoors.

Try to get some early skiing in and it was way too icy. An expert skier, but even I a problem navigating. Come back in 2018. I would suggest going to Timberline or Meadows even if it does snow.

They're probably better at their ski activities but the summer attractions are kind of weak. There are piles of plywood and other building material debris as a result of what I assume are major summer maintenance activities while they are preparing for the upcoming ski...More

Not positive but I think I remember seeing September as part of the summer. I think it is very weather dependent.

The day would be the best way to go, we opted for just one trip down the alpine slide. Small children have to be over 3 to ride with an adult . And over 48" to ride alone.
