I know this thread is pretty much dead so I don't know if you will be able to answer, but I will hopefully be going with some friends (all new to snowboarding/skiing) for a day in february. I have it narrowed down between Devils Head and Cascade. I had read that Devils Head has longer runs (with respect to other places in the area) and seeing as I had gone to Cascade and wished I could have stayed on a slope longer everytime I got to the bottom I thought Devils Head would be the obvious choice, but looking at the trail map there arn't too many easy trails so I was not sure if that would be the best choice for a group of people new to the sport.
Can you give me a recommendation from your experience on what the choice should be. Price is not really a factor as i think the difference for a lift ticket and rental is like 6 dollars or so.
