Patrolled there for 10 years, should know every inch, and I do believe me.
H.V. is a nice place for a great ski time as well as is the whole town of EVille.
There are 52 runs spread out over various terrain and it's really a challenge to try and ski them all in one day, which I used to everyday. More often then not, weekends are crowded and the lines are full which makes getting in 30 runs a chore but if you can manage a weekday trip it's wide open. I've seen days there with fewer than 200 people. Frequent dumps of Lake Effect snow make for more than the number of powder days and I can remember a stretch of 30 days in a row with fresh snow. Does it get icey? yes, but show me a place in the east that doesn't.
H.V. is a nice place with a full service resort feeling with three main base lodges with restaurants and a very nice Hotel at the base of Sunshine lift featuring ski in ski out lodging. Apre-ski downtown is the best with my favoritebar being the Gin Mill. Down the road is the Depot bar, owned by some friends of mine who are good friends with the famous Glen Plake who visits the Valley a couple times a year. Glen will tell you it's one of his favorite places to ski and hang out.
They cater to families and their ski school and handicap skiing program is second to none.
Worth the trip.
