We are planning a trip for February for 7-8 adults. We are all beginners and intermediate (maybe!). Several of us will be doing a day of ski school. We have some who will probably ski a day or two and then do some shopping. I've gathered that ski in/walk to lift is a good option so we can go back to the condo for lunch. We will probably eat out every night. I'm pretty overwhelmed by the options and am at least looking for a recommendation on a part of town to help narrow the search or specific suggestions would be great. We are all from the midwest and I really want to stay at the lowest altitude we can to prevent problems with getting sick (in addition to all of the other recommendations).
Thank you so much!
