Jan 26- Feb 2 My wife and I were the trip leaders for 29 members for our ski club. It was one of the smoothest trips we have run. The 7 units we used for 7 nights were very nice for the price point we paid. The shuttle vans (2) were spot on as far as getting people to & from the slopes and around town for dinner and shopping.
The large indoor pool was average temperature, but the kids seemed to enjoy. The two hot tubs (indoor & outdoor) were both of the 15-20 person size and nice temperature. Most of our rooms were on the upper two floors which gave you a nice view of the Vail Valley. The full wall windows and sliding glass doors in the living room did a very good job of keeping freeway noise to a minimum. Others have said something about the noise, but I thought it was a non-issue. The bedrooms are on the backside of the units and were very quite. I didn't receive any complaints from any of my club members about their units. The 5 units I viewed were fresh and not beat up. All had granite counter tops.
The location is not in Lionshead, but is across the freeway from Cascade Village area. The only negative would be the Wi-Fi was under powered during prime time. But I have never been to a place yet with good Wi-Fi....In past trips we have stayed closer to the Village, but total trip price dictated a more to the Simba Run property....which worked out very well...We used the conference room for a catered party supplied by Moe's BBQ, which was top notch.
I just hope Vail doesn't price the average skier out of the market. I would return here if the price is right.
