Magical Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Six friends and I embarked on our first of hopefully many more snowboarding trips and stayed in the Game Creek Chalet for two nights during our trip to Vail - what an unbelievable experience! Weeks later, I still have a grin on my face - definitely the coolest place I've ever stayed!

The entire chalet was clean, warm and inviting and was perfectly laid out for our needs. All of our boards fit in the lockers outside and all our wet boots and gear were stowed in the large entryway. The living room space had plenty of room to just relax and boasted spectacular, expansive views of the slopes and surrounding mountains and the dining table is large enough to fit 8 comfortably. The deck off the back of the living room had a hot tub that was heated and ready to go and felt amazing after a long day of riding. The kitchen had all the amenities necessary to prepare and cook meals for our large group as well. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all spacious and well-furnished and even the pullout sofa was super-comforatble (I know because I slept on it!) All this and all we had to do was gear up and walk outside to start the next day of riding. I highly recommend the Chalet to anyone for the ultimate snowboarding/skiing experience!

Chalet Magic

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Chalet. We got to sleep in while everyone down in the village was standing in lines to get up the slopes. While people were trying to ride up the gondola we were already making first tracks. Being able to grab dinner or drinks in the restaurant at night and then walk to our place without having to leave the mountain made the whole experience ideal. The sunsets from the hot tub after a long powder day made the trip an experience of a lifetime.

The Epitome of Ski In/Ski Out for the Adventurous Spirit!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience of the Game Creek Chalet was a skiers paradise. There is no better location to wake up and get first tracks through Game Creek Bowl than Game Creek Chalet! This Chalet sits halfway down Ouzo run, skiers go past all day long. We were the first ones on the lift, not because we woke up early but because it takes other skiers so much time to get back there! Even getting to the Chalet was an adventure. You start by checking in at the swanky Arrabelle at Vail Square where you meet a concierge dedicated to your vacation. Then, you take the Eagle Bahn Gondola to the top where you can either ski to the Chalet or ride a Snowcat there! If you have never ridden a Snowcat, I would highly advise it as it's an entirely different way to view the mountain. The accomodations were lovely. There is a deck that faces the sunset and if you time it right, you can dip in the hot tub as the sun is setting. As soon as the sun is set, you'll want to cozy up by the fireplace. At night, the only sounds you hear are the distant snowcats setting the mountain up for your next days adventure. Although secluded, you don't feel alone as across the cat track from the Chalet is the decadent Game Creek Club. The food is incredible and the bar is warm and cozy. This is a nice change of pace from the Apres crowds in the Village as the patrons go there for a different type of experience. The Chalet is both an adventure and a great place to disconnect although there is WiFi and surprisingly, decent cell service. There were tons of opportunities our concierge made us aware of but our primary goal was to ski untouched powder which, thanks to Mother Nature was bountiful. The best time to go is January/February as those are the months where the giant storms hit. Our stay has definitely made the top ten lifetime adventures.
