Yeah I disagree on a couple of points there for Sunshine (never been to marmot so can't really say about that).
-gondola from base can also be considered a con, when you realize that if you're trying to get first tracks, you have to take into account a 20+ min trip up to the base, and a potential lineup to even get on the Gondola. Also, if you say pack a lunch and leave it in your car, that's about an hour round trip to come down for lunch.
- Stuck up skiers? Must have been your personal experience, I chat with everyone on the lifts there and generally there are chill people. Then again, I almost NEVER ski on weekends being a local, as that's when you get the more stuck up city crowd.
-Groomed runs are for beginners? I don't really get that logic, but you can't control mother nature, when it dumps, Goatseye glades are incredible. As mentioned by YanTheMan, it sounds like you missed a lot of the good runs. Find a local next time and ask for some tips!
