Book accommodations only at Highland House and the weekend rates during peak ski season will run about $300 a night. For a more economical deal, look into ski and stay packages, which typically run about $200 per person and include two nights of lodging in a one-bedroom Highland House unit and two days of lift tickets.
Highland House's one-bedroom units are a spacious break from standard studio hotel rooms. Each features a gas fireplace, full kitchen, high-speed Internet connections, a pull-out couch, and a separate bedroom. The units can easily accommodate a small family or four adults.
The lodge's amenities include hot tubs, laundry and an exercise facility. Additionally, lodge guests have access to lower-level ski lockers, an amenity that we particularly enjoyed because it meant not having to haul our ski equipment back and forth between our room and the slopes.
