I am very skeptical of non-chain resorts or b and b's. Typically they will look very nice but then have terrible beds and service. This place was fantastic. The photos on the Wolf Creek Resort website are a pretty good match to reality. Staying at a place like this was very different than the typical ski trip that I take.
I stayed in unit TR11 which is a five bedroom home with a two car garage. This is a development that would be typically classified as an Executive Home development that you may find in most suburbs but it is out in Eden, Utah. This is not ski in or ski out. A car is mandatory. There is some sort of bus service to Powder Mountain but only out in the AM and back in the PM as well as I could tell. Snowbasin is a real fourteen mile drive but Powder Mountain is a very easy four mile drive. We did not ski Wolf Mountain but I drove to it and it is a gem. On paper Wolf Mountain seemed too small to consider but after going there I regret not going for a few turns. This would be the best place by far for green skiers.
We arrived about 10:30 PM. They had e mailed us a code that unlocked a realtor type lock box near the front door that had the key in it.
This part of Utah is extremely friendly. Sometimes things can get tense at the bigger resorts to the south. Wolf Creek Resorts has a "Concierge Desk". I do not use concierge services in general but this desk was really great. They sell discount lift tickets to all the resorts and give great advice on things to do. This was our first stop everyday. They also had a lecture or something each night. We never had the energy to go but they seemed worthwhile.
The house was very large and had great beds. I am picky but they had Serta Perfect Sleeper beds with bedsprings. The bunk beds just had mattresses. The kitchen was well appointed. All of the baths were nice. Washing machine and dryer worked. We parked inside since it snowed everyday and that way we did not have to brush off the car. Also they do plow the streets and driveways.
The Valley Market is a grocery store nearby that is very nice. It is at an intersection that is known to everyone so directions are usually given in relation to it. It is also open to 10 most nights and should have everything you need. It has a pharmacy and the food prices were not inflated. We rented good skis at Diamond Peak near Valley Market. We got good pizza one night from Tracks at the resort. Harley and Bucks is a great restauarant close to Valley Mart. Call ahead for reservations or you will be stuck with carryout like we were.
In summary, this is a unique ski experience. For a lot less money you can stay in a massive house with a two car garage. But you are also not within walking distance of any shops, etc. This resort is very well run and professional. I think that it would be nice to alternate this sort of secluded experience with a ski-in ski-out experience.
Also staying here and driving the mile or two to Wolf Mountain would be great for green skiers.
