East coast snowboarder here - I've been to Snowshoe the past 3 years and the wife and I are finally taking our trip out west. We're staying at the Marriott Mountain Resort in Lionshead. We'll be there the last week of Feb and will be hitting the slopes Mon - Thur, and possibly Friday (depending on energy levels).
What advice can you give me re: places to visit in the village and, more importantly, how to tackle the slopes? I'd say were both intermediate level, with myself being a bit more comfortable and adventurous vs. my wife. Should we hit the bowls first day, or build up to them on day 2? What strategy is ideal for avoiding long lift lines? Recommendations on where to rent equipment?
