As novice skiers, we wanted to take some lessons. Although the group lessons were the most reasonable, the people were concerned that since we were beginners that we might not be able to keep up with the group. Accordingly, we opted for a one hour private lesson for the the 3 of us which was much more expensive. The hour... More

Good service -- rentals were in great shape -- nice shop. Friendly staff and trails were in good shape. The cabin is worth the trip to get to.

My mother-in-law went cross country skiing here and was lucky enough to be the only one who signed up for a lesson which meant she got a private class. She said the instructor was excellent. The views from up at the lodge are lovely.

The hike to the stone chapel was fun with beautiful views and scenery-- and the actual chapel was gorgeous! The photos we took at the chapel were breathtaking-- and we loved writing prayer requests and ringing the bell. I definitely hope to do this again!

Just a wonderful, magical place to be whether you stay, eat, stroll or only visit! I've never stayed but we often visit the various amenities such as the beer tavern, restaurant, and gift shops!

We had a great time at the outdoor center during our stay at the resort. An interesting mix of staff – some were unhelpful, almost to the point of being rude, but then a couple of the employees were awesome. The indoor pool is large and there are plenty of hours for families to enjoy. The hot tub is outside... More

We visited here because we couldn't but visit it. An amazing setting and easy to see why the Von Trapp family settled there. A lovely gift shop and area displaying photos of the family. Well worth a visit

Wonderful history tour about the "real" von trapp family. Fascinating story of their lives in and after leaving salzburg. Hilight was having the baron and maria's grandson speak at end of tour and gracious in answering questions.

We booked the public history tour. This tour gives the Trapp Family history and most delightfully explains the differences and similarities of the Trapp Family and the Sound of Music Family. It ends with a Q/A session with a Trapp family member. Cost was $10 for lodge guests.
