Pros: Best mix of terrain, great kids programs, if you can ski here you can ski anywhere

Cons: can't think of one

I can't say enough about Disco....the frontside is a great mix of runs for all levels, and the back is..well, they say it's some of the steepest lift served terrain around, and I believe it. It's a good sized resort,and if you can ski it all, then there isn't much on the planet you can't ski. That's not all though...the prices are very low, the ski school and racing team programs are amazing, it's not crowded, people are friendly, and the views are wonderful.

The base lodge is 60's functional, and caters to a 99.9%...
