Need Help - Vail newbie traveling with kids

We're Vail newbies, 2 families, 3 children in tow, going to Vail in late March 2009. Does anyone have hotel / condo recommendations? We're ideally looking for 4 to 5 bdrm condo, close to gondola or lifts. I hear that Lionshead is more manageable if we're traveling with young kids, who are all 5 years old. Any help much appreciated and thanks in advance!

Lion Square Lodge -- although I'm not sure if you can get anything about a 3 bedroom condo anywhere.

Would you entertain Beaver Creek as a suggestion? They have many more condo options closer to ski school for the kids and the kids ski school there is just awesome. I would suggest lodging at St. James Place, Beaver Creek Lodge, Market Square, All within close walking distance of ski school.

Beaver Creek is just SO family friendly and only 10 minutes from Vail for additional variety.

Lionshead is a great choice for families & The Antlers, Lion Square Lodge and Lodge at Lionshead are the "top" condominium properties. As noted, anything larger than a 3 bedroom is hard to find. You can go to Vail.com or VisitVailValley.com for complete lodging details & resort information.
