It's a nice resort, but it can't compare to Vail, keystone, or even beaver. I am not sure about layout of the resort, there's something about it that I am not crazy about. Conditions are usually pretty good and they have lots of terrain to explore. Stay away from weekends as this place get insane crowded, prob the most crowded after Breck. As for the town, there's really none, just a few restaurants, shop and condos. The nearest towns/villages are Frisco, Breck, Vail and Dillon. Summit is a major ski/snowboard destination so there will always be a lot of people and things to do.
