Was impressed by the sheer size of the resort. Lots of runs for different abilities. Had a bunch of fresh powder when we went so was fun to ski.

I've had 5 season passes here, and that should say plenty. The snow is always a little better than the other 3 Wasatch front resorts.

I am not sure, we took the ski bus in from the city the 2 days we were there. We stored our stuff for the day in Goldminers. There are racks and lockers, not sure about ski storage.
