My wife planned a family get away weekend and I didn't want to know only to just follow our GPS. Driving for 2.5 hours and through little towns and keeping my eye's on the GPS and on the road. When the GPS was saying your destination is right ahead, I looked at my wife and said to her that we are in the middle of no where and both me and the kids looked at each other and saw nothing. When we turned the corner and started up the hill it was an amazing view of this huge lodge on top of the hill with every light on and was our location. As we pulled our car under the large entrance, we were greeted by the one of the employees and told us that he would park our car for us and "Welcome". As we walked into the lobby area of the lodge is was awesome and sounds of guests having a great time, a guy playing the piano and the fireplace on. For the kids and also for the adults, the indoor waterpark with 5 water slides, a wave pool and a heated indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub was amazing. Yes we even had snow and was amazing to do. Great food at the lodge, the pizza was excellent too. I would go back, the views are great of the slopes and a skiers dream. AAA++++
