skiing in vail

Hi, planning a skiing trip with my kids(10 and 7) and my husband. First time in vail and skiing. Friends have recommended two hotels Montaneros and Mountain Haus, they seem similar on the photos, I wish to know which one is better choice.

Both good. I prefer to be in Vail Village over Lionshead, but many people like Lionshead because of the Gondola. I'd make my choice depending on ski school> If your kids will be in ski school, I'd suggest Mountain Haus. Right outside their door is the free bus which will take you (in less than 5 minutes) to Golden Peak where ski school is located. If they are already accomplished skiers & not in ski school, Montaneros is fine.

The better restaurants and selection is also in Vail Village IMO, although there's a bus between Lionshead and Vail Village.
