However, some things that rated this resort lower than normal were they didn't shovel the snow out of parking lot, which made it very difficult to get up hill and park. Sometimes we had to park down the road and walk in, and we had a baby with us, so this was not convenient.
Also, this time of year one relies on using the hot tub. The lights in the outdoor hot tub did not work, so you could not tell if it was even clean or not, which made me uncomfortable. However, it was warm and you could see a beautiful city view from it.
Then came check out day. When we were checking out, the hillside driveway was SO ICY we slid all the way down! A few others were stranded in the ditch. This proved to be very scary. I feel they should have been more prepared for that amount of snow and ice.

There were two downsides that I noticed, but those were not exactly limiting. There are no elevators so if you're in poor physical condition it might be difficult to climb up and down the stairs unless you plan on staying inside your unit. The units don't have washers or dryers in them. There is a room off the stairs at 3 different sections with free community washer and dryers.
Inside the units, it was nicely decorated with updated/new decor and well supplied. The 2 bedroom had one full bath and a half bath. There wasn't any outside storage room for ski stuff but the closets in the bedroom were very big. It was very cozy and comfortable.
The Heavenly NV Stagecoach ski lodge and lift is just down the road about a mile away. The area is a community of lots of other timeshare/condo's, but there was a convenience store, and a bar/restaurant also just down the road. There were a lot of impromptu places to sled close by. Looked like some great snow-shoeing areas too.
