Ski in/ski out is exactly as previous poster described. Not suitable for beginners or cautious intermediates of any age. The location is pleasantly secluded but a terrible spot if you'd like to take advantage of the ski valley. It is too far away over steep unlighted terrain to be considered walk to for any dining, shopping, sightseeing or entertainment. The shuttle runs very limited hours at only the very beginning and very end of the ski session. Unless you can handle the ski in/out coming back to your room early or for lunch is not feasible. Forget about apres ski or going out for dinner other than the one restaurant which offers their own shuttle. Otherwise it is a drive to the general parking lot and still a good uphill hike from there to and from anything in the ski village.
The room decor and finishes are high end but not practical. The bedrooms have no dressers the closet has a bar only, not even a shelf and the only clothes storage is large bulky drawers that are most inconveniently located on the floor under the bed. No luggage stands either. The unit we were in had beds for 5 but the one chair and love seat in the living room accommodated at max 3. The other seating choices were on the metal backed kitchen stools or in the bedrooms on the beds.
The room had a very nice forest view unfortunately the view went both ways as the picture window had no window covering of any type. We had no way to close off the view of our living room, kitchen, or the only bath entrance from the walkway used by guests, staff, or the pizza delivery guy. When I complained the manager seemed to understand but I was later approached by the owner who told me that other guests had stayed there and not complained . She said that maybe "you like to walk around your living room naked". They did subsequently nail up a sheer sheet over the window, while making such a comment maybe she (the owner) was able to visualize the potential and decided a window covering not a terrible idea!
