Stayed in a 3 bed condo above the ski patrol. Spitting distance to one of the lifts. The non-skiers enjoyed a front seat picture window of people watching and snow grooming. It could not get more central.
We were a family of 10 including an infant, elderly, kids and non skiers. The condo was larger and has a better kitchen than I anticipated. The decor was simple but fine. It was not luxurious, but acceptable. Our prices included 2 adult lifts tickets for each night. I really liked that the passes started when we arrive and end when we leave. Other places make you pick 2 days to ski on a 3 day, 2 night stay and ski deal. There was an issue with the bunk room. No one mentioned that top bunks have an 80lb weight limit. We had an older teens and
2 adults planning on sleeping there. We had to make due using the sleeper sofa and cuddling with the little ones. Wish we knew that.
There was a jetted large bathtub in the master which everyone loved and used. Oddly, the fireplace is fake. No heat, light or gas. The bed and sofa bed were squeaky, and worn out. The pillows were on last legs.
We never used the pool. It is closed when temps are below 25 degrees outside. It is covered to retain heat, so I had to ask if it was even available. The gym was shut down.
I was annoyed that there was no communication by the hotel/resort that due to bad weather the slopes were shutting early.
There were even big flashing signs on the lifts that advertised, but made NO mention of this, nor announcements in the hotel, cafeteria, nor country store. We happened upon this info at 2pm when a non skier, happened to be watching the tv. Luckily, we managed to get 90 minutes of skiing in. I thought shutting 6 hours early was exactly the kind of announcement a flashing sign on the lift should mention. They should have a placard in the cafeteria/hotel.
The rental guy was very nice. They have a great beginner slope. The next step up, was quite a leap though. We had to try to ski in terrible ice , rain, and high of 3 degrees. Rough weather and skiing.
Overall, we may come back, it was a good deal.
