The resort handled the weather bomb really well maintains contact with us and offering a cancellation. Rooms were spacious, clean, well equipped and quiet. Service was slow at meal times probably due to low staff due to weather as last night there was slick. Breakfast could start at 7am for skiers and tourists trying to do stuff. Resort activities nice alternative to outings.
