We stayed here from March 14th to 17th with my 9 yr. old niece and nephew who are beginner skiiers. They loved the half-day ski lessons, very organized and good instructors ~ the snow not great but it felt more like summer than winter which they also enjoyed. There is a tractor-drawn wagon called "Red Devil People Mover" that runs back and forth between Weider Lodge and the South Hill where they had their lessons. There is also a "resort shuttle bus" that we never used. Check-in was very friendly and efficient ~ recommend to park in the underground parking as it is right underneath the lodge and you can take your luggage up in the elevator ~ we were on the 4th floor ($10. a day), unless you are lucky enough to get it for free.
We had a bachelor suite, which was lovely, a full kitchen plus dishwasher, queen bed, pull-out sofa and a good sized balcony overlooking the village. Housekeeping consists of replenishing supplies and making the beds up, bed linens are changed after every 3 nights. There was lots of activity and noisy at night, but also exciting to watch the people and the activities being set up. One day there was a show put on by the "Earth Rangers", also a bonfire set up in the middle. You could smell it from our room, but i love the smell of a bonfire, so no problem. We had to have our balcony door open all the time as it was so warm. We brought our own food so had breakfast and snacks in the room. We also enjoyed the outdoor hot tub ~ there's a small exercise room with a few pieces of equipment, where you can pick up towels for after your soak ~ also a sauna. (Wifi is $10. for a 24-hr. period.)
The restaurants were very good. We only chose the reasonably priced ones. First night we ate at "Wild Wings", the 2nd afternoon, lunch at the "Firehall Pizza" (excellent pizzas), dinner at the "Copper Bar and Grill" (excellent food and service) and the 3rd day, dinner at Thorlos (excellent food and service but a little noisy with the Greek musician).
The charming village is a lovely place to walk around, shop and enjoy the beautiful scenery ~ people were sunbathing in the chairs at the bottom of the hills and around the bonfire, wearing t-shirts or light jackets in March. We will definitely return, probably on the family day w/e in February 2013, when hopefully there will be snow. Great for families with young children ~ there were also a lot of teens there.
