My family and I had a wonderful experience over MLk weekend. Upon arrival, we were received by Cheryl at the front desk, who got us into our incredible mountain view suite asap and ensured our comfort and satisfaction throughout our stay. She is a gem. We dined at the Hawk's Nest each night, and the food and service was incredible....

We were supposed to stay here for 4 days but a bad storm kept us away. However, we made it up for the day and had an amazing time. Snowboard school was really great for my son, he took to it like a champ. We're planning to come back again before the season is over.
