I've only been to bear, and that's where I had my beginner lesson. I had a very good instructor, but I can't remember his name. They do package the lift ticket, lesson, and rental into one package which is nice (same company as Snow Summit- so they probably do the same). But as others have said, bear has only a handful of beginner type runs and has features on almost every run. With Snow Summit being more open and with less park features from what I hear.
I might be able to make a weekday up there. My work schedule fluctuates all over the place and I've had some weekdays free lately. Still haven't been to that neck of the woods this season yet either.
