I have seen the statement "easy blues" used in a lot of posts, I was just wondering what everyone considers easy blues. My experience would say an easy blue would be long, with out too much of a steep section (like Tomahawk), are there any other runs along these lines.

Also, when you take a group lesson in the ski school do they break you up by ability? We are going with a group in Jan. of all different skill sets, and were going to take a group lesson, but there was some concern that some in the group could be bored while others are overwhelmed.

Actually, Tomahawk can be even easier if you take the Sundial cutoff. Upper High Noon and Sunshine Liftline are two similar runs in Wally World. On the Lower Mountain, the base area has the easiest runs.

Each group is set up for skiers of similar ability, from neverevers to advanced skiers. If you let the Ski School separate your group by ability, they will be with others facing the same level of challenge. If you want your group to all ski together, it would probably be best to get a set of private lessons but that would not be the best way to learn or improve if they are of widely varying capabilities.

Thanks alot! When I was last there with my wife we spent most of out time up in the Wally World area, as the bottom of the mountain was either real icy in the morning or real slushy in the afternoon (we were there in late march and it got pretty warm in the days) so we did not ski the bottom very much. Do you have any suggestions for good cruisers? Nothing too steep as we don't enjoy the straight drop off runs.
From the Gondy, I would suggest Vagabond which does have a few steeper parts lower down. Why Not, a Green, crosses back and forth along Vagabond so you can always bypass the steeper sections if you want to. A not too challenging path would be to take Vagabond to Betwixt to Lower Concentration to Between to the Bashor Lift where you can ride up and watch the skiers and riders in the Terrain park and then down Vogue to the base area.

Its a little up hill from the top of Bashor Chair to Vogue so you need to pole a bit.

I avoid the lower mountain in late march and April since it does get a touch slushy and usually ride down the Gondy at the end of the day to avoid getting wet.

Cheers
