First time we stayed on the mountain for skiing. What a wonderful concept. To be able to get up in the morning and not have to rush to get up the hill for a good parking spot and for first chair/tracks.
We stayed in the main lodge with a view towards the ski hill. That was a lot of fun. We were able to watch the people skiing during the day and the groomers during the night. To see the lights going almost straight up the hill was great.
The rooms are a bit small so don't expect anything big unless you stay in the new West Wing. The TVs could be bigger than the 20" but really, are you there to watch TV? But it would have been nice to have a larger TV.
The Staff at the base as well as the actual hotel were really good. It was almost like they bent backwards to get what you wanted. We didn't have a coffee maker in our room. Within 30 minutes of asking for one, we had one in our room. The bed was turned down every night (cool thing) and towels changed out at that time if you needed.
Restaurant staff were good and again, you didn't lack for anything.
