The ski instructors were down-to-earth, patient men who must have stifled laughter at our complete ineptitude. The equipment rental was efficient and reasonably priced, and even the staff where we bought our lift tickets amazed us with their friendliness. One woman even went so far as to spend 10 minutes trying to find us a restaurant for dinner later that evening.
We stuck primarily to the beginner slopes, though the gondola going all the way to the top of the mountain looked fantastic (hence the very long lines). I kept hearing how icy Stratton would be, but I found the slick stuff to be few and far between. And there are enough beginner slopes to keep us amateurs busy for days.
Grizzly’s bar—the center of the après ski scene here—was very crowded by the time we hit it at 4pm (right when the lifts closed), but service was friendly, and the hot drinks, in particular, were delicious.
My only complaint about Stratton was having to park far enough away that we needed a bus to bring us to the mountain. And despite the fact that my little B&B was so sweet and comfortable, I was slightly jealous of all the people who could ski right from the slopes into their condominiums.
