My 12yo son and I are going to Red Mountain last week of December.
My son is a novice/low end intermediate, myself - advanced intermediate skier. None of us has experience of skiing powder (the toughest terrain we've ever skied is some black runs at Mt. Tremblant in Quebec:).
Question that I have:
- Does ski school at Red Mtn. worth time and money?
- How good are the rentals at Red Mtn.?
- I own a pair of Atomic C:9, but they are no very suitable for powder, imho. Should I even bother bringing them?
- Where can I buy discounted lift tickets to Red Mtn. (any local ski shops, REI in WA., etc.)?
Any advice on skiing at Red Mtn. will be greatly appreciated!
