This is a nice place to stay. It looks great, new, modern, and it's an easy walk to the gondola. We needed to be close to the slopes so we could trade off babysitting duty for our 10-month-old. It worked! If you go and are planning to cook-- make sure to BYO salt and pepper-- all they have for this are little cafeteria packets. Otherwise, the kitchen was quite well-equipped and a pleasure to cook in, as it was spacious and full of new appliances.
One issue we encountered in the booking-- we booked through "The Lodging Company" and ended up getting "foreign transaction fees" on our credit card statement, as apparently they bank out of Canada! Who knew! All our invoices were in US $ and there was no disclosure of this-- apparently they are not required to tell us! For our credit card it amounted to 3%, which was significant as we paid about $4K all told for the week's stay and lift tickets. We are complaining about this-- but just wanted everyone to know in case there are other booking agents... I think there are.
