Skied Royal with MDB, daughter, SIL, and all three grandkids. This was my first family skiing in nearly a decade, I really enjoy teaching the little ones and seeing them enjoy and improve.
Conditions could not have been better, great packed powder on the trails and powder on the edges and in the trees. Everyone had a ball, virtually no lift lines even though the parking lot was busy. Still very reasonable prices, too.

I was surprised by the difference skiing the trees at a ski area vs true back country tree skiing. Even though Royal tends to attract better skiers, and there are less skiers than other areas, the trees are just not as good as my favorite BC spots.
Still fun, just different.
If any of you are on the fence about getting out next weekend, just do it. Conditions are the best in years, and will only get better with the coming snows and continued cold temps.
