I stayed at the ML for 3 days Thur-Sun. The lodge itself is perfectly situated, out the door and on the slopes! Its central village location is perfect! You can tell when you get there this is one of the original properties compared to all the new facilities surrounding it. But, this is not a bad thing. The prices are economically friendly. The room was nice; 1bdrm, full kitchen (with utensils) overlooking the slopes. The check-in was a breeze at the Snowshoe Inn. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I asked for a room overlooking the slopes and they gave it to me.
There’s not much night life at the resort regardless of what they advertise. The village shops are a 2-3 min walk. There's also a convenience store for your usual sundries and refreshments (5min walk). Once you park, you shouldn't have to use your car unless you want to trek the 6mi back to the bottom of the mtn. There is a restaurant and lounge in the lodge. The restaurant is good, the servings are huge. The drinks are awesome. Overall, a very nice place to stay on the mountain for a few days. For me, I probably wouldn’t stay more than 3-4 days. Nothing against this resort or what it offers; that's just me and how I plan my ski trips.
As far as skiing; GREAT!!!! It’s an upside down mountain meaning you start at the top. The runs were nice. Some terrain for every level. If it’s windy (and snowy) as it was on Friday, it can get pretty icy and very cold. But don’t let that stop you… layer up.
Lastly, if the weather is bad, it can be a little tricky getting in and out. The roads are narrow, hilly, and winding. Just drive with care.
1 - Be sure to shop at the store at the base of the mtn before going to the resort, theres a price and selction difference at the top.
2 - Try to get a room on the 3rd floor to avoid the boots, skis, and floor noise
