River Mountain Lodge worked VERY well for us. We paid $1200 for 6 nights/six days skiing in a studio. It's not the most luxurious, but it's nice and the LOCATION IS OUTSTANDING!!! It's only a half block from main street, 4 o'clock run dead ends at the front door, bus stop directly across the street and it's 5 minutes on the bus to Beaver Run/Peak 9 and about 8 minutes to Peak 8 in both directions. There's a GREAT tuning shop just steps away (Glide Shop) and front desk valet ski storage ($1 tip made them happy). All of the nightlife on Main Street is within walking distance and might I recommend "Giampietros" for inexpensive but oh so good Italian and BTW, the bowl skiing in Peak 7 & Imperial bowls is pretty good too(didn't get to ski the other bowls). Have a good time!
