Winter Park also has a variety of terrain. It is good for all levels of skiers and boarders, whether beginning or advanced. They have bowl skiing if you like skiing fresh powder. They groom the intermediate and beginning slopes really well.
The resort offers several choices for lunch. They have places on the mountain and at the base of the mountain, where you can meet your group and have a warm lunch. They also have numerous lifts, so that helps spread some of the crowd out.
I have skied in Winter Park numerous times and hope to go back again soon. The first few years I went during spring break, and it was pretty crowded at times and the lift lines tended to be long, but since I have been going in February, it has been wonderful. There is plenty of snow then and not as much of a crowd.

This year I enrolled in the parallel class. My instructor, Rich, was exceptional. I improved dramatically under his watchful instruction. Most group lessons are $30 and have a morning and afternoon schedule option. As I was the only participant in this class at this time, I ended up with a private lesson. Lucky me!

It's a very family-oriented resort. The ski school is known all over the country. The front mountain, facing the village, has plenty of green (easy) and blue (intermediate) slopes to practice on.
Up above are Mary Jane and the Bowls: great mountains that get great snow. The lower runs don't tend to get as full of advanced skiers as other resorts do, because the upper mountain is high enough in quality to keep them off the beginner runs.
The resort provides day care, ski school, food, and plenty of places to relax afterwards.

Hint: If you rent off site, don't wear ski boots to walk from the parking lot(bus drop off) to ski area. Lockers are readily available on site and this experience (those boots can be painful) almost ruined the day. Walk around in BOTH boots before you rent and make sure they are adjusted properly for your feet and legs.
Ski-School for kids: Kids made new friends, and it's supervised closely. I felt perfectly safe leaving my children there. They also had great time.
