Location location location. That's what you are paying for. The lodge is right on the Mountain, you take a Gondala from the foot of the lodge over to the Gondola to the Summit. The conveieince of walking downstairs, grab your skis from the ski valet, then you're basically on the slopes is very appealing.
It's not cheap. For the price I thought it would be like staying at the St Regis or 4 Seasons. It's clearly not. Hordes of young children running through the halls , quickly disabuses you of that notion. In fact we were woken up at 7am from screaming children in the adjacent room. The walls are pretty thin. The front desk did move us and gave us a late check out for our troubles.
But I have to admit this wasn't what I was thinking for a romantic get-away. If you have children- you will love it here. Very family friendly, VERY convenient. Romantic get-away, consider someplace else, or just deal with the screaming children. Sometimes a price must be paid for convenience.
Rooms: The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were well appointed. I slept well. I found the rooms clean and spacious. I'm glad they dont make you play for the Wi-fi.
Make sure to pack your swim trunks they have heated outdor pool (90 degrees) that looks like a blast. (Again lots of little children).
The ski valet was awesome. Nothing like having your skis and poles ready for you, not needing to lug them through the hotel.
Skiiing:A smaller mountain, but very enjoyable.
Verdict:Great for families. Poor for Romantic getaways. Amazingly convenient. Pricey.
An Adults only wing or floor- would really make this place spectacular.
