Completely unpretentious; no one showing off their sick bra ski gear or looking down their nose at anyone. A good amount of terrain with some bumps, groomers, steep & a nice park. Something for everyone in our family!

showdown was a great vacation, large enough to get away from the relatives, but small enough to not get lost. Great staff, huge numbers of instructors, ski school for all ages. All around a great time and good slopes...Mother Nature dependant.
