I have been going to DV since the early 90's. DV is headed downhill. The prices continue to sky-rocket, but:
-The lift lines are poorly run. Ski school gets unreasonable preferential access. Beginner skiers use high-speed lift and cause continuous stoppage and delays. Student skiers dominate numerous runs (vs. a small number of dedicated beginner runs for students) to the detriment of others.
-Lift ticket pricing is simply outrageous. Prices rising, service and quality dropping
-Food has always been reasonable at DV; very expensive, but restaurant quality. I like the salad bar. The quantity, variety, and quality of the food on the salad bar has deteriorated
-Overall, the employees are less friendly and inviting.
I have never been so disappointed as I was during this last trip to DV. I may go elsewhere going forward. They can't charge top-dollar while allowing the product to deteriorate. I will gladly pay-up for top notch but not for mediocre.
