We stayed over the MLK holiday. We have 4 kids, so with 6 of us we rented 2 rooms in the hotel. It was a great deal, the rooms including breakfast and lift tickets, and 2 combos of a large pizza and 4 large sodas. It also included putt putt golf, bowling and tubing, but we didn't have time for any of that.
First, the skiing. The slopes were well groomed and fun, certainly enough variety for a long weekend. We had the kids in 10-4 snowboarding school the first day, since it was their first time. A great deal, including instruction, rentals, lunch, and all day lift tickets (kinda redundant with the room package). But if I had to do it again, I would have gotten a two hour private lesson for the 4 of them.
The rooms were spacious, and each room had 2 flat screen TVs with the normal cable channels. Wifi was free, but signal strength was varied. Other people have said the hotel is kinda worn, and I'd agree with that. But it wasn't at all bad, it was nice actually, and at these prices more than worth it. If you're looking for a really nice 5* place, this probably isn't what you want.
The bar/restaurant area is fun with alot of energy. I'd agree with others that you'll want to avoid getting a room too close, as I'd assume it would be noisy. But it's a fun place to go to. It was especially crowded this weekend because the Steelers were playing, and the bars were packed. But we didn't have any problems getting served.
Lunch is typical pub food. Hearty, reasonably good tasting, and reasonably priced.
For dinner, we didn't go to either of the nice restaurants, so I can't comment on that. The pizza place was pretty good (good pizza, good strombolis, friendly service). The bartender at the bar made a nice Manhattan. Otherwise for food, think Fridays, but without as much variety. It would have been nice to have options of a steak or ribs, for example.
We thought all the staff were really nice and helpful. Overall, it was a fun, relatively inexpensive weekend. This is definitely on our list for a long weekend ski getaway, although next time we might try to stay at one of the ski-in / ski-out condos.
