Right on the slopes
Posted Aug 23, 2016 on Hotels
Had we visited in winter, this would have been a fantastic location. Right next to the lifts (unfortunately our "mountain" view featured the lift engine area). In summer, they have mountain biking and an outdoor pool/hot tub/sauna/health club. There is also a fire pit on the patio at night.
There are a couple of restaurants on site, but we didn't use them. Our room was actually a small studio apartment which included a full kitchenette - toaster, microwave, stove, fridge, dishwasher, sink, blender, coffee maker, plates etc. We made breakfasts in the room.
The room had a Murphy bed, which was a first for us, and that would have provided a great space for entertaining had we been with a larger group.
There is some parking available, but if the lot is full there is a free valet service. They're pretty quick about getting the car to the door.
The only negative was a fire alarm that went off at 4:10 AM. The alarm went off and then stopped a couple of times, and no one was sure whether or not to go out. When we called the front desk, they said there was smoke in the health club, so we decided to evacuate along with most of the other people. Some folks stayed in their rooms, which meant a delay for the rest of us as the fire crews cleared the building. It seems to me that the fire alarm should have continued to sound throughout the situation. Local fire response was thorough and professional, although it takes the volunteer crews some time to arrive.
