We have been staying at Trapp every January for 15+ years. There is no better place for x-country skiing!

We have skied at Trapp's a lot and have always enjoyed it. The combination of a good micro-climate for snow and skilled grooming makes for a good experience. Not to mention the varied terrain that accommodates experts or beginners... or anyone in between. Views, woods, challenge. It's all here. They also have extremely good signage and trail maps for anyone... More

I just don't get the hype around this place! Rooms were small, not well kept, with horrible beds and pillows. Once you get over the Sound of Music part of the family history, it's nothing special.

Cross country skiing package was perfect for us. Took a lesson and had a blast then took off for the trails in the woods. It was a perfect first experience and now I am hooked. Our instructor Dorothy was great and so nice. Ask for her!

We loved the authentic Austrian atmosphere created in the lodge and the several out buildings. It reminded us of our travels in the Austrian countryside & mountains. The lodge is homey and reflects the Trapp family history we all know and love portrayed in The Sound of Music. The brewery & bakery are worth the visit. The beer is excellent,... More

We were disappointed in the skiing here -- given that more than a third of the trails were closed due to lack of snow, we thought the price of $24.50 was excessive, particularly when other ski centers were offering reduced prices.

Very cold and dark environment. Staff OK and food the same. Being a von Trapp site I expected more. View probably better in Spring through Fall - everything was brown and not covered with snow yet.

We did not stay at the lodge, but we were urged by a friend to at least drive by and check out the facility. It was definitely worth the trip up the mountain to see the beautiful buildings and views.

We stopped by this morning and were given helpful info on hikes. They even offered to make dinner reservations for us! You can pick up a trail map, a water bottle and anything you could possibly need for a day or morning of hiking.
