When judging a resort or planning a shred vacation, be sure and take into account a bit more than that the number of jibs, size of the jumps, inches of snow, or shine of the sun. Vibe, Terrain, Value, Energy, Lodging; these and countless more factors can have a huge impact on your trip and experience. Ever had a sweet day on the hill, only to get back to the “town” and find out that the pubs close at 7 pm and the nearest cute waitress / hot bartender is 100+ miles away? What if the park’s set for a king, but the roach-infested bunkbeds at the lodge aren’t fit for a servant? We asked, you answered.
