Not advertised clearly
It is a very convenient location if you are skiing- because of that I would consider staying again. But that’s the only reason. It advertises that all rooms come with a TV- well they do have a TV screen, but no cable or antenna/ nothing. Not even a remote control. When told the front desk - they said “ya you have to bring a fire stick or something. And we will get some new remote controls ordered”. - thanks for the heads up. LOL It was not very clean. (Mainly because everything is old and needs a good deep clean) but had old coffee in coffee pot, Bobby pins on floor, etc. it was fine for the teenage boys I brought skiing though: we stayed on a Thursday night and sipapu restaurant is not open on Thursday nights either. So pack food, and something to plug into a TV. Because after 5:00 there’s nothing to do.

Pretty disappointing as on site restaurant closed early and before arrival so had to drive to find dinner. Staff shortage that wasn’t disclosed at time of booking. Next day the only way to get food was through online app that was down along with a water main break. So again no food other than a package of pop tarts found in their “store”. The room itself was dirty with piece of chewed gum on floor and pistachio shells. No working tv either. Beds were comfortable at least and was more quiet than expected.

The only good thing about this resort is the ski mountain itself. Staff is rude, not welcoming in any way whatsoever, hotel room was hardly clean, and the “cafe/restaurant” stated it was open yet they don’t actually have any tables to dine in. This resort has so much potential yet it’s rated 2 stars for a reason.

It’s a nice and family friendly place to stay for a ski trip. A ski in and out resort. Very satisfied overall.
