First and last visit. The "village" is actually a single very short street with no activities. The two restaurants and couple of stores enjoy their lack of competitors with very high prices. There is only one convenience store (monopoly again) and no liquor store. The slopes are long but have too much traffic: snow mobiles, people walking dogs, people on snowshoes are all often on the slopes. After 3:30 or 4pm when the slopes close, there is nothing to do. Internet and Wi-Fi are either inexistent in some properties or very slow where available. 23% resort taxes on top of already unreasonably high prices for rental properties. Too closely monitored everywhere, including many patrols stationed on slopes: we felt in kindergarten all over. We are having week-long winter and spring family vacations every year and have never been so disappointed from a resort. Staff is mostly friendly but too intrusive: loud knock on the door at 8am for room service (when you are on vacation), myriad of people on parking lots, along the path to the slopes, on the slopes, everywhere. There is a fine line between being available and tripping...
