This was our first family trip to Winter Park, Colorado and we so lucky to have discovered Arapahoe Ski Lodge. It was everything I remember about visiting a ski lodge from when I grew up. The staff (which is the family that owns the lodge) is what makes this place the most special vacation you will take to the mountains. The bedroom was a little small for the my wife and two children (since we needed to spread out all of our winter garments), but little actual time is spent in the bedroom. All of the leisure time is spent in the cozy living room, reading room, dining room and game room. There are comfortable chairs, couches and fireplaces at every corner of the lodge and the owners make sure you have everything you need to relax. It was the first vacation with our two boys (9 and 11) that I felt completely comfortable letting them leave the room on their own and come back when they were finished playing (pool, ping pong, board games, puzzles, etc). The kids have already asked when we can go back so they can see their new 'friends' again.
