It's impressive how friendly every one is at this resort - from the staffs at the Front Desk, the Activities Center, the Store, the Restaurant and the Bar were very friendly and willing to help. The daily Housekeeping staff did not seem to have the energy and the same dedication we found in the rest of the resort but we were there on a busy weekend. However they did responded quickly to every request we had.
I recommend staying at the Tower where you are centrally located because you then have a full kitchen and can make your meals. This place sleeps 5-6 easily and comfortably without being on top of each other! Being able to make breakfast helps to get everyone out on the slopes earlier. We had a great steak dinner in the Branding Iron overlooking the slopes at the end of the day. Even though you pay more for the room then the other options we saved money by cooking in for most of our stay.
Only odd thing was there dead flies that showed up everyday because the sun was heating up in the windows. Hopefully they'll get that fixed before we stay there the next time!
And most important what a beautiful mountain to ski on and then a great nordic park right across the parking lot with many trails to enjoy! The ski staff and ski patrol etc... always seemed to be there when you needed them. We did not want to check out as it was snowing 2 feet of snow the day we checkedout!!

There are two mountains for you to explore with over 2,000 acres of lift served terrain, over 2,270 vertical feet, and an additional 600 acres of terrain reserved exclusively for Snowcat Adventures.
