We went here because we heard this was a good family friendly ski area and that lessons were cheaper here. I signed my son and his friend (both age 5) for group ski lessons. When we arrived, the lodge area to check-in for ski lessons was chaotic and smelly. The lady who checked us in said, "Sorry but you missed... More

While well located to Boreal skiing, the name "resort" is a misnomer. Rooms are outdated and don't feel clean or sanitary. Towels had holes and stains. Someone was smoking inside (there's two doors and a sort of snow room, so appealing if you are a smoker and don't want to go outside) so lobby smelled liked cigarettes on the morning... More

We had a good time snow tubbing, too bad there wasn't too much snow. The people were very nice and helpful. There were some Chilean guys helping and guiding us. The American guys were at the top of the hill, and talking among themselves and were not paying attention to the costumers.

Great little training hill but transformed after a big dump of snow. We went on the way back to SFO airport and turned up after nearly two feet of snow. We went back Country and got some serious Virgin powder! Lovely people work here so all in all a family place!

Can't beat the location. The staff was really nice and helpful. The rooms are out dated but clean and mine did not smell. Close to skiing and tubing! Night tubing is the best! Microwave and refrigerater in room.

Make sure you bring your own snacks if you don't intend to spend too much money just on food alone - let alone a $4-small corn dog! Tubing area is different from the ksi and snowboarding area. In both cases, they will charge you for the entrance and use of amenities. So make sure you bring extra cash.

This is a great no frills place to stay. We stayed in a standard room on the first floor which was great. The room was huge and all rooms have a mini fridge and microwave, which came in handy. It was clean and the beds were average. The mattresses were old but still offered good support. The pillows were pretty... More

We took our kids up for a quick snowboard trip to Boreal.. There are no other hotels at Boreal so you are paying for convenience. The hotel has seen better days by far but the staff is nice and for a fast ski trip it's adequate. We brought sleeping bags and our own pillows. We had room 109--1 king bed... More

The room has a horrible stench, and the bathroom smells terrible. The sinks were dirty and old and was not what I expected for what I paid. The ski lift lines are very long and the people running the lifts have a terrible attitude. The only good things are that the inn is close to the ski area, and the... More
