We stayed in the Deluxe Village Condos - 2 families with 6 teenagers ages 12-18.
These condos are owned independently and rented via the Resort. They are absolutely fabulous -- lots of room, brand new throughout, a bathroom for every bedroom, full and equipped kitchen, huge dining area, living room with gas fireplace, huge balcony. The 3 bedroom condo (we booked a 2 and a 3 bedroom) had a grade entrance to a cloak room area (undress, store equipment) and a separate living space for the kids. The condos were ski in, ski out, though not off the main runs, but certainly nicely accessible.
The Resort people aim to please -- we arrived at midnight during a heavy snowstorm and they escorted us to our condo, and even plowed out parking spaces for our vans. They are extremely accommodating and want to help.
The only drawback is that there is no hot tub except for at the main hotel, which we had to drive to (only 5 mins). Definately something that we always enjoy and missed on this trip!
The snow was great. Get up early and get out as the afternoon tends to cool down quickly as the sun goes behind the mountain. Cafeteria food good and typical pricing ($15 for a large beer, soup and sandwich). No food or huts on the mountain. A few restaurants in Jay (we enjoyed the Village Inn) along with a reasonably stocked General Store.
The tram was overrated, but you gotta do it once I guess. Kinda like the TTC (Toronto subway) at rush hour. When you think you are full, they pack ten more people in. It only goes a bit further than the highest chair lift, but faster and warmer.
A great family holiday, we will go back!!
