First thing first. Fitness center gets a 10 here. Full gym, tennis courts, swimming pools, running trails.... I had a beautiful room with full kitchen. It is like a small city, it has it's very own (although very small) movie theater, Starbucks, ice rink and some restaurants.

The resort was amazing, fairly new to Welk. Some of the employees had only been there 6 months so sometimes I knew things they didn't. Lots was closed like activities, lift up mountain, village stores.
