Dinner at the Whitt for a large group was fun but this place gets crowded. All the tables are jammed in fairly tight and the restaurant gets stifling hot. The food is fine and the meals we had were satisfying. As with anything in the snow a little on the expensive side. Good for kids as well.

All the staff at the Whitt are very friendly and helpful, The accommodation, is very dated, but if a bed for the night is all you are after it will suffice. The rooms are down a warren of corridors and staeps, so be aware if you are in your ski boots.The continental Breakfast was adequate. all the amenities were available...

Fabulous location, great amenities and staff were amazing. Great to have ski school out the front door as everything else. The bar and restaurant meals were excellent, very quick and very reasonably priced. Great to have it all in house. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with beautiful views, especially sunrise. Great hot shower.
