    "Our family stayed here for a week in February. Everything was exactly as described. Easy to get keys and ski locker. Great location!!!! We had two young children and it was great to be in the Village as we switched out skiers often. Easy walk to the lifts. I highly recommend and would definitely return."

  • Absolutely Perfect

    "We absolutely loved our stay. We had 6 adults and never once felt crowded. There was more than enough space for everyone to spread out. It was great to be so close to the ski lift, and to be on the ground floor where we could walk right outside to ski. Everything was as advertised. We will DEFINITELY be back."
