SMR is a lovely small resort allowing the excellent staff to provide those little extra services that many other resorts don't bother with. The unit, grounds & facilities are excellently maintained and although we were furthest from the club house, it was only a minute (outside) walk away. Covered car parking is provided adjacent the units along with (an unheated) storage locker so you don't have to lug your skis to the unit each day. Our one bedroom unit had a full kitchen, dining area & lounge, drying cupboard, washer/dryer (in the pantry), a/c, humidifier and fireplace. This resort also has a ski tuning room, (fortunately in our block, which we made good use of!) The clubhouse has an indoor pool & spa (& an outdoor spa), lounge area and small gym, computer & printer, free wifi & a mobile phone hotspot (if you can't get mobile reception in your room). We were on Tmobile and did not have any reception in our room. However the unit has a direct phone number people can call.
Having stayed in many timeshare resorts worldwide, this was the first I have encountered that charges a ($10) 'resort fee'. (Come on man - this ain't Vegas!) I don't have an issue with a resort fee if I can see a benefit, but when you have to pay ($5/day $20/wk) for WiFi in your room, this is a bit much! Sure you can use the club house (when open) but you would think providing free wifi would take precedence over free cheese, crackers & popcorn at reception, especially since you can't use your mobile as a hot spot. (WiFi is now a basic necessity, provided free by most establishments) This unnecessary penny pinching means an otherwise excellent resort gets only a VG rating. An RCI 'Gold' rating is not a license to charge hidden extras!
