The Big Picture
It's a concept grasped by anyone who has stood on top of a mountain and understood what it means to be filled with wonder and inspired by the wild. It's a perspective that comes from getting outside, where towering peaks and real air and fresh snow have a way of stripping off the stuff that gets in the way of what's important. It's a vantage point from which our number one rankings, legendary terrain, reliably deep snow, and world record-breaking gondola take a back seat to how it actually feels to be here.
And that feeling comes from our slope-side mountain town with an undisputed vibe. From our outdoor adventures that range from just-enough to over-the-top. From our world-famous après, five-star dining, spas, shopping, and legendary nightlife. And from of course being the largest, #1 ranked resort in North America. But the big picture isn't about those things. It's about the perspective you gain from having it all.
