As I was told when house shopping: location, location, location! That's why this place gets the 4 star rating, it is right on the ski hill as advertised. We opted for a slopeside room, and we pretty much left the hotel on skis and ended up right at the gondola.
So...about the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the place was very clean, and you could throw a rock at the gondola. But it was dated. If you're looking for a resort experience, keep looking. If that doesn't matter to you, get ready to party like it's 1999. Who needs a flat screen when there's a free VCR library? It's like walking into a time capsule of the 90s, everything is maintained but old... it's like you're actually staying in a hotel in the 90s. So if the 90s were your idea of Nirvana, you can have yourself a little Pearl Jam in the private Sound Garden of the Ptarmigan Inn.
All kidding aside, we had a good time and slept well. We'd go back, but we'd bring our own pillows. The pillows were from the 90s, when heads were smaller.
