Bite Sized Wisdom from a Ski Review at

A bite sized nugget from about Wolf Creek--but really about skiing in general:

I read a lot of these negative reviews and wonder if these people really even like to ski. Some have valid complaints about poor service, bad attitudes by the staff, crappy facilities, etc. Most just seem to be looking for something to complain about. Bottom line: Skiing is not for whiners, pessimists or wimps. It's always going to be cold. There will usually be lines and traffic and you'll have to walk a little ways to and from your car. The food will always be more expensive than at home. Your boots will never feel like your house slippers. Snow conditions will not always be perfect and the sun won't always be shining, but if you truly love to ski, then none of this will matter to you. All that will matter is standing on top of a mountain and trying to decide which way and how fast you're going to go down it.

Well said.
