been there every year for a decade, missed this year due to a hip problem. very pretty, oddly not that cold (not much wind). the pic is beautiful, but on a weekend the town is wall to wall tourists. there are more tour buses than cars, whole parking lots, buses from all over the west coast and Canada.
highly recomended, but leave toddlers at home, lots of walking and the shops are mob scene. either make restaurant reservations or eat around noon, the eateries get swamped (yes they serve beer).
if you can do it, take a bus tour, the driver has put the chains on the bus, not you.
take lots of pics. dress warm.
