Comfortable beds and with a superior corner suite, more than enough room for four people. Plenty of luggage and drying space in the room and bathroom is huge (though a bit cold as there wasn't any door to close off shower space). Fill up the included humidifiers, as it makes sleeping much better. Can't remember much in the way of...

The restaurant, lobby and bar have all their 60s-70s vintage charm while the the spa, pool, steam room, etc. have seen impressive remodeling so over the years. The food...

The thing I loved most about this resort was how convenient it was! It truly was a "ski-in/ski-out" resort. The most convenient I have ever seen. They picked us up from the airport, so we didn't need to rent a car. They had ski rental at the resort as well, a family size locker to hold your skis at the...

After a fabulous day of skiing ride our chair lift back to the lodge to enjoy the best apres and complimentary appetizers in our Eagles Nest Lounge. Our 85 rooms range from modest to luxury accommodations that include new "Comphy" linens. Daily rates include a full breakfast and gourmet dinner and FREE WIFI.
