Some of the areas have dark text, but others are light and hard to read. Text could be alittle bigger, also.

Winter Park's page is titled "Copper Mountain".

I disagree with this statement for winter park:

"- Some of the best bowls that are closest to the real back country, all accessed by lift or a short hike"

IMHO winter park has the LEAST accessible bowls of any resort on the front range. You have to take the pano express to get there (frequent wind holds), then you have to either pay for a cat ride or ski/skate/walk a mile to the bowls. There's a few hundred feet of vert, followed by a long traverse to eagle wind. Then you need to take eagle wind back to pano and repeat. I doubt it's possible to lap this more than 6-8 times in a day. Not to mention this usually doesn't open until February at the earliest.

I think winter park added this so that they could claim they have "extreme terrain" and bowl. What they need to do is somehow install a short lift back there.

I can agree it would be nice to have another lift back there, I however do really enjoy their bowls and the diversity of them.

Not so much a criticism as serious advice: Know your audience. This is a forum of people that live and breathe skiing year-round and chat about it in their spare time. This site also has in-depth resort guides and reviews that go into way more depth than your site. 

 

Your website is not really for us.

May be true for the people who post, especially those still posting in the off season.  But there are far more lurkers that have different levels of interest.  Never can have too much info about skiing.  Although personally I'd rather ski in Utah than Colorado. :)

Since it is a class project, I imagine it's more about the presentation than the content.

Use a different picture when you click on a different mountain.  Pretend it's that mountain.

 

Text looks like a bad powerpoint slide.

 

If it is "find the resort that fits YOU" there ought to be more of a selection process than just clicking through the pages.

 

If this is a quick homework assignment, it is pretty good.  If it is a long-term project, I would expect more.
