Since December is here and it's starting to feel cold and it's almost imminent that snow is on the way, what better a Match up Monday than to compare two popular ski resorts?
Snow sports are certainly not for the faint of heart. You've got to have some serious adrenaline and stamina to keep up with such intense sports. The good thing is, you'll work up a good sweat. Snow sport lovers start discussing their travel plans to ski resorts in July, counting down the days to a cold winter where the white powder is their friend.

Last Valentines Day, I tried willingly to be a tough cookie with my boyfriend who caught on to the sport very well. I was out of shape and did terrible with my skis, but I had a lot of fun trying! You can read about the adventure here.
Do you enjoy snow sports? Have you been to either resort, if so/if not, which do you think is better?
My family has seasons passes to Mnt Creek...not really by choice, we have a time share there, and it came free with that for 25 years. It's not the best, but it's only half an hour from home, and since it's free, that's the only place we go, unless we go on vacation somewhere to ski. I've been skiing since before I could walk, and while I'd love to be able to be in the midwest - Mnt. Creek ain't bad.
