My father and I stayed here while we crossed an item off his bucket list. We were looking for something that was ski in / ski out with just decent amenities. We were disappointed that only one of the 4 days we were there we could ski into the hotel, and couldn't ski out because of the Olympics. The one run to get to the hotel on the last day was over 7 km long, and quite the epic trip!
Bus service to the main base did cost $2, but wouldn't be necessary for skiing during a normal stay. Only a limited number of retaurants within walking distance, but a place with probably the best BBQ in town is close, as is a supermarket. The hotel was a typical skiers' time share, built in the last 4 years I'd say. The pool and hot tubs were not crowded during our stay, but would easily be during a busy weekend. They are outside and offer a great view of the slopes.
Hotel personnel was very helpful. They offerend to store our luggage while our room wasn't ready and we had tickets to the bobsledding final. Every day there was at least one person at the desk that greeted every customer that came in and out. Very good recommendations on eating in the area, and apologies for not having the lifts open as planned outside the hotel. We had a minor leak in the bathroom one night and a maintenance person was at our room in no more than 5 minutes, and we were on the furthest side of the building. He got it fixed and apologized profusely, all before the evening news.
It's the perfect accomodation if you are looking for something not in the bustle of the main village, but still a ski in / ski out. There is also bus service from Vancouver, door to door. If you're on the fence about this property, I can assure you it will be a great experience while you are there.
