What side is better? North or South? I dont think that the ice conditions there will be any worse than what we have around here. We have not received any real snow here so everything is all the fake snow.
Any food places that we should def. hit up? Money is not a concern.
I prefer the north side myself because i find it to be less crowded. just go for a few runs on each side and you can decide yourself. the reason i run the south side cause it's easier to just jump on the gondola to get up there
i dont think there is any spectacular place for food there. it would be best to just find a resto-bar for drinks and maybe catch some sports game. better than fine dining unless you're on a date
