Family groups of us came down from Hamilton. Easy to get to ski field, hiring gear here is cheaper than on the mountain! The staff we dealt with were super friendly and nice and knew what they were talking about when fitting gear. Rooms were adequate and warm. Only negative thing I can say is that there weren't quite enough toilets/showers and that they are uni-sex (some other guests failed to shut the door while in use!). I would stay here again though.
