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

My family has stayed here twice now. Both times the staff has been outstanding. They now have a small selection of food for snacks. They also provide a small variety for their continental breakfast that is included with your stay. The price is higher but hey you don't have to drive anywhere when you are staying the weekend for snowboarding.... More

The location is great if you want to take your kids to Soda Springs (a mile away) or Boreal (down the street) for tubing or beginner skiing. The complimentary breakfast was a hit with my kids with offerings of cereal, yogurt, fruit, and bagels with cream cheese. But the hotel room was a disappointment considering we paid for a superior...

The pictures are a little deceiving. The premium rooms were not available so we settled for a standard room. There are no elevators so we carried our luggage three flights of stairs, a little tough if you are not used to the high elevations. The rooms were large but very dated, walls were thin, large space under the door, bath... More
