There was 4 of us - mother and 2 daughters - in their 20's and her friend. When we arrived they had yodaling (sp?) playing - that was cool. I had skied Red River about 10 years ago and wanted to take my girls. I was worred about the snow - when I was there before they had to make snow. We got 9" the first day and 10" the next. Check in was easy. OUR ROOM - #8 - 2 bedroom 1 bath condo. The balcony was huge and over looked the river running beside and the slope. The rooms were perfect. The kitchen and the living room was an open concept. VERY CLEAN. We had 2 blankets each on the beds and a cover. The second night we called and ask for more blankets because one of my daugghters wanted to sleep on the couch because her friend snores.........lol. They had blankets to us with in min. The TV was very clear. Every night they had a bomb fire (if you will) outside our room with 2 swinging chairs - (pics included) This hotel is a ski n ski out. As you know 25 year olds can get very loud at night - the way this is set up it was okay. I love you Alpine - keep in mind - if you are looking for chandeliers and crystal - go to Vail. Slopes - just great - what can I say - snow was powder like Colorada - hard to even make a snowman. Town - you can walk anywhere- LOT'S eateries everywhere and prices are good. We even walked to the grocery store 1/2 block away. We snow mobiled the 3rd day - They staff was great - and my girls thought the guides were HOT>>>>>lol (of course "I" was called down for running the mobil the wrong way on the meadow....lol) - I have NOTHING bad to say about the Alpine or the slopes or the snow mobil or the town. It was one of the best vacations I have had. I had skied Colorada, which is great, and the Catskills. They even had a liquor store....NOW HERE IT COMES..........We fly into Alb. and took Twin Hearts to Red River. This guy that drove us was Rude. We had us and 5 other people on the van. We were the last to get off. I think his name was John - not sure - wore a hat. We watched to see what the others tipped. As each one got off NO ONE TIPPED. He just got there bags and that was it - When we got out he turned to us and said "What? no tip?" I only had hundreds ad a few ones. I said - "You didn't ask any of them for a tip why us?" He replied - Yah, and wanted to punch them." Because I knew we had to be picked back up at 6:00 a.m. on the last day to get to the airport I tipped him. I wish you could hear from my girls - he drove like a maniac. It scared us to death. Now with that being said - it was a different driver who picked us up on time - drove safe in the snow and was kind. If you want any information - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org - p.s. they do have clubs for you who want night life.................
