Golden Peak

Just read about Golden peak in the forum. How does that compare to one of the hotels in Lion's Head? My husband and i want to be close to a lift, shops, restaurants, etc.

I just answered you in your other thread. They are all 4-5 minute walk from each other - all the same. Find a great hotel, regardless of the location and it will be fine. It's all beautiful!!

Golden Peak is nice and a good place if you have REALLY young children in ski school. Lionshead is where most of the lodging is located and has the best access to the mountain, via the Gondola and a high speed chair at the base of the mountain. There is also a ski school in Lionshead for adults and children. Check out the Montauk seafood restaurant -- it's the best in the Valley. Don't forget to checkout Adventure Ridge at the top of the mountain where the Gondola drops you off. Fun activities and good food.

A Vail local here>

I would recommend the Golden Peak area as you have easy walk-to access to all mentioned. Lionshead is currently going through a magnificent redevelopment presently so there is major construction going on smack dab in the center. The main shopping/restaurant area is along Bridge Street so Golden peak would be closer. You didn't mention where in the GP area you have found lodging but any will offer you easy access to the lift, ski school, shops & restaurants. I would recommend Manor Vail Lodge, The Christiania, The Tivoli Lodge, Ramshorn or All Seasons. Next year when The Arrabelle in Lionshead is complete, stay there! The Gondola will be steps away and the whole area will be transformed> it's exciting!! GOOD LUCK

P.S. Check out www.snow.com for great info.
