Down-to-earth yet luxurious is the best way to describe this family-oriented ski-in ski-out hotel. Despite its size, it manages to remain intimate. Rooms reflect a "mountain eclectic" style, with rich plaid and floral fabrics, wicker furniture, and wrought-iron lamps. The restaurant Atwater on Gore Creek has garnered acclaim for its outstanding grilled foods and fine selection of wines. You'll have access to the adjoining Aria Spa & Club and the full-service health
club with racquetball, squash, and basketball courts. The best deals at any time of year are the packages, which might include lift tickets in winter or sports massages in summer.
