Nothing prepared me for a COLD long weekend in a hotel like this. To top it off, the beds/mattresses felt about 50 years old (think you and your partner on top of each other in the middle), the way to stay warm were old unmatched dusty blankets (like they picked them up at the good will in tahoe), and a tiny space heater. The space heater is the type you see in an office setting, to keep your feet toasty warm in the winter. Not something to heat a hotel room. We were given an "upgrade" on the room, but it was kind of like a space which had been a closet converted into a "three bed" room. Never again. Even the common areas were crazy cold, we had to wear our snow gear in the hotel to the restaurant. Their huge fireplaces had maybe one small log smoldering in them.
I've driven by on many a snowy morning since then, and sometimes cars are stuck in their lots covered with snow for days. Bring a 4x4 with a plow if you want to get out early and ski.
Speaking of which, the owners got a truck stuck in the snow one night we were there, and kept us awake for well over an hour after midnight revving the truck trying to get it unstuck.
