I don't see much on WC here, so I thought I would start a thread.
My family is heading up there between Christmas and NY. I realize that it will be pretty busy, but wanted to get some ideas and pointers.
We will have people of all ability levels and ages (5-70), so I'm hoping to get some ideas of how to best streamline the trip, as I know that WC is a bit "different" than the typical resort....not that there's anything wrong with that!
We're not looking for night life....we've got kids in tow and a hot tub and beer at the cabin...so we're pretty good for entertainment. And no, the kids won't be drinking the beer.
We're staying on the "other side" (i.e. not Pagosa Springs) FWIW.
And if it makes a difference, while we will have TX plates, I assure you (with the exception of my kids) none of us are Texans...not that there's anything wrong with that!
I only post this last disclaimer because I read somewhere that the natives at WC REALLY don't like Texans (more so than most other ski areas).
