Incredible and worth it!

This resort is absolutely incredible!  As soon as you pull-up you feel valued, cared for, and taken care of.  It is not an inexpensive resort, but it is worth the money for sure.  We loved the close proximity to hiking trails, plus biking and skiing trails in the right seasons!

great ski resort

It was expensive. however you get what you pay for. If you love to ski It has everything from ski lessons and rental inside the hotel. We rented skies from Northstar ski resort and dropped it off at the hotel and when my son was late to ski lesson. they drove ski mobile down the slope to make sure he made it on time. I would highly recommend this hotel. I would not recommend dinner at Manzinita. I was really surprise that they would serve burnt pizza and steak was overdone.

expensive but worth it

We spent one night at the Ritz-Carlton for a "special occasion" ski trip. Our room was large, comfortable and very well appointed. The service was excellent at every level. The exercise room is large and very well equipped. The ski-in, ski out feature was a real treat, and the ski concierge took all the work out of hitting the slopes. Loved it! While the service at the restaurant was good, the food was pricy and mediocre. We have stayed at luxury hotels both in the US and abroad, and this ranks among the best. We will go back.
