Simba Run is a delight. The condo's are spacious and have beautiful views of the valley and the ski mountains. It's smack dab in the middle of the valley, so you're never far from anything.
The staff was very helpfull and more than willing to help me out. They have all the local establishment phone numbers at their fingertips. When a light bulb was burned out and when I needed instruction on the icemaker, help was at my door within 10 minutes.
The indoor swimming pool is huge. Turning laps was nice since I wasn't flipping every 20 feet. The Jucuzi is well maintained. It looks like it was recently reconstructed. Everything was imaculate.
For skiers, a big plus is the locker room right next to the shuttle stop -- no schlepping of gear all over creation. The best part of Simba Run is the shuttle arrangement. During the day, the shuttles that get us to the mountain run in a continuous loop. That means the average wait time is 5 minutes -- maximum 15. But the wait is not a problem. It is under cover so you don't have to stand in the weather (snow, rain, boiling sun) waiting for it. I Just sat and relaxed and talked to others about the upcoming day.
The shuttles run people to three entry points on the ski mountain, the kids ski school and, after the mountain closes, the supermarket, and the village. Renting a car is not really needed.
I've already booked my next trip in December.
