A-Basin is my favorite place to go. Some of the other Resorts have centered on becoming too fancy, and therefore, too crowded. It is a good atmosphere. But if you have little kids learning to sky, you can't beat the Galloping Goose at Winter Park and Mary Jane. No one is ever there, it is a nice, long, low chair, and the run isn't too steep. Kids 5 and under are free, and adults are only $10 (a year ago) to ride with them on only that chair.
