We stayed at the Polaris Lodge, the smaller sister to the main lodge building. Large, spacious and clean suites with all amenities, all above the guest servoces, ski rental and next to the main chair lift. Staff were great and friendly, and it was a short walk back across the Plaza to use the hot tubs in the main lodge....

We've stayed at Polaris and Trickle Creek over the last 3 Christmas vacations and we are going back again this holiday season. We have nothing but positive feedback for the Polaris Lodge. Perfect location, just steps from the ski lift. Very clean, well equipped and properly maintained condo type suits.. Staff is wonderful and very accommodative. We've been so happy...

The Polaris Lodge offers very good value for your dollar. Our quality bedroom suite was very clean and had everything you would want, including the kitchen and sink. My only complaint is that off season you have to check in at the Trickle Creek Lodge next door which is a short hike across the Plaza. Another issue is that the...

We usually stay in that hotel around Christmas time for our extended friends gathering. Polaris is perfectly located just steps away from the lift. You may literally walk out the building in your ski boots and get in your skis. Most of the rooms have the kitchen, so you can prepare your own meals. We used to do that regularly,...

We stayed at the Polaris Lodge, would be nice if there was some sort of breakfast offered even though these are kitchen units doesn't mean you want to prepare every meal! The rooms were good except the cheap beds! A very, very poor hide a bed in the living room and the main bedroom had a very uncomfortable bed as...

We recently stayed at the Polaris Lodge to attend a wedding that took place on the mountain. Views from the top were spectacular. We stayed in Room 210. Had an excellent view from our deck. Nice evening sun. The cleaning staff was excellent. The only negative comment I have is Don't go thinking it is a cooking kitchen. They must...

You check in at the Trickle Creek Resort which is next door. First night was just a room consisting of a bed and bathroom and balcony with a view of the ski hill. Next night we were to move across the hall with no view of the hill. Asked if there was a room available on the side with a...

another off season one night stay on a trip through the Rockies. The Polaris is a ski lodge that seems to be the budget arm of the trickle Creek golf and ski resort. All the amenities are in the attached, but clearly separate Trickle Creek Lodge. The place was the high end of budget priced at $136 a night but...
