The huge plus of The Springs is how close it is to the kids ski school and the river run gondola. Truly a huge plus, as you try to get your kids with their 4 layers and their gear to ski school (it was around 0-10 the week we were there, with wind chill making it feel lower). It also has a small pool with a small water slide (not warm enough for adults, only kids were enjoying it), two hot tubs, a fitness room, a pool table, and TV room. Only a short walk to the rest of River Run, where the restaurants are located.
Sounds great, right? Well, there is a downside - how poor the construction of this building is. There is no insulation - you can hear everything inside the condo. At first, we thought there was construction going on in a unit around us. Then, we realized the hammering noises late at night wasn't construction, but noise related to the pool table. Every time a kid scratched the cue ball (trust me, this happened every 5 minutes, we must have had a rash of eager, poor pool players), the ball would bounce off in the hard surface below and traveled through the poorly insulated walls, sounding like hammering. Every time someone trotted in ski boots in the hall - you can hear it. Every time kids were horsing around and having a good time - yes, you can hear it.
Having said that, I would return to the Springs due to its location and how much the kids enjoyed it. Hint: request a 'quiet' location - farthest from the lobby and gondola would be the quietest.
