Great location near slopes with easy access and adequate parking. Very nice restaurant and perhaps the best breakfast experience we have had in a "breakfast inclusive" hotel. Inviting lobby with very efficient staff.

Yes we do, but we only have 8 rooms on the property that are pet friendly. You need to call to make sure these rooms are available before you make a reservation. There is a $30 charge for the stay
