Anyone have any recomendations as to where to stay at MT SNOW?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi All - I am going to MT SNOW this week. Leaving Wednesday night and skiing Thurs/Fri with my son. We do like ski in/out places and got a quote from GRAND SUMMIT which is right there at the base......but not sure if we should just pull the trigger on it since the rooms dont look that great. It doesnt have to be ski in/out since we are flexible and will definitely get to mountain super early regardless......just wondering if the community here has any ideas for us as to where to stay.

I've stayed at the Grand Summit and everything was fine except for the restaurant, which really sucked. We ate breakfast at their deli style café and that was decent. But stay away from the main restaurant.

 

Ski in/out was definitely convenient as my son wanted to quit at 1 o'clock one day so he just went to the room while I skied.

Bummer to read RPTW comment about the food at Grand Summit Lodge. I'm heading up there tomorrow with the family for the rest of the week and was hoping to use the Restaurant for at least one of the meals. We were there 2 years ago and I thought it was pretty good at that point but guess as a hotel restaurant quality probably fluctuates quite a bit.

 

For us with kids 11,9,7  the Grand Summit convenience can't be beat. Couple steps out the back door , grab skis from ski check shed. Couple more steps , drop skis on snow and ski down to corinthia lifts.

Hey, I was there two years ago too, so maybe we just have different taste.;)  More than likely it was the fact that we waited over an hour for our food and it might have given me the wrong impression. I actually walked to the bar and got out drinks when they hadn't come in 30 minutes. The waitress never even noticed.

 

Oh, and it is totally convenient. I would go again, just driving down the road for dinner.

Well that'd do it. I don't recall the food being THAT good that it would be worth waiting over an hour for. I do vaguely remember an awful long wait for beer refill though.  
We're going to venture off site more this trip for dining as the kids are a little older.

We rented a nice one bedroom condo at SNOW MOUNTAIN VILLAGE just a short ways away. There is a shuttle to the mountain.

I thought that the food on the mountain was better than the food at the Grand Summit.  And the bar was certainly better, with much better beer choices, at reasonable prices (for a ski area).

ALL, I'm new to EPICSKI but I have lurked on it a long time. I'm going to Mt Snow in 2 weeks. I will post my findings. We booked a 1 BR condo at the Grand Summit. Thanks for the pointers. So basically drink in the bar, eat in the deli and go out for something nicer. Any recommendations? Thanks. 

FWIW I am looking in other forums to post and add to my support/knowledge of EPICSKI.....thanks to everyone.

We had good meals at the very casual Valley View saloon   and more formal 1846 Tavern. Both very short drive from the Hotel.

Other than the breakfast buffet we didn't end up eating at the Hotel this trip.

IIRC, Kelly Clark's family has a pretty decent restaurant in town.  We were there during the Olympics, amazing vibe in the place.  Food is fine, but cool to check out all of her memorabilia and swag decorating the spot. Very kid friendly kind of place.

 

There is also a good restaurant we hit every time called the White House Inn (also a B&B) in Wilmington VT.  Food was great and nice ambiance.  Probably a bit fancy for the kids, but the wife and I have enjoyed it each time we go.
