This my first trip to Snowshoe Mountain. The Silver Creek Lodge is quite dated. The common areas needed a good cleaning on a regular basis. We were there 5 days and only once did we see someone cleaning the lobby area. The fitness center has decent equipment but it was filthy. The pool/hot tub area was decent and served its purpose of soothing sore ski muscles. The pool is indoor and outdoor which was fun for the kids but we were disappointed that they had the outdoor portion closed for part of our trip. They said it was too cold out and the pool heater couldn't keep up. The ski rental shop was very easy to work with. No lines or long waits there. They have a cafeteria which is decent for a quick lunch. They offer a complimentary continental breakfast which was OK but not really the kind of breakfast I want before skiing. Just muffins, danish, cereal, juice and coffee.
Now about the condo itself. They are all individually owned so I'm sure they very quite a bit. Ours was a 1 bedroom with loft standard. It slept 6 but that would have been crazy crowded. We had 3 in our condo and that was about the most I would put in there. They said it had a wood burning fireplace but in fact they had an electric fireplace that didn't heat the room. It was just for effect I guess. The beds and sofa were terribly uncomfortable. Even after a full day of skiing we tossed and turned all night long. If the owners would replace the mattresses and living room sofa it would be a huge improvement. I would not stay in this particular condo again but perhaps a privately managed one with more updates.
I will say that the employees at Silver Creek Lodge were very friendly and helpful.
