My husband and I did a mid-week ski and stay early in February and we loved every minute of it. The hotel is up to date, clean, and spacious. Our room had a microwave and fridge, which I wish I had known in advance to bring some snacks. I think the hotel's website is somewhat lacking in information about all of the amenities that they offer, because this hotel offers a lot but you don't know it until you go.
The hotel has it's own rental shop, which is very convenient and there's never a lot of people waiting. The rentals are 1/2 price with the ski and stay, which I thought was a good deal for 2 days of skiing. The slopes are well groomed and maintained, even with this warm winter we've been having on the East coast. I was afraid it would be icy but it was not. I like Bear Creek's slopes a lot better than Blue Mountain because they are wide and there are a lot less people here.
There are a few different restaurant options which are perfect for any budget. There is a place where you can get take out (even hot meals made to order), a casual restaurant, the cafeteria, and a nicer sit down restaurant. At night they had trivia at the casual restaurant/bar. We really like the food at the nicer restaurant, which has a lunch and dinner menu so we ate there twice on this trip.
They also have an outdoor pool and hot tubs which had a dozen or so people in it all night until they closed. There's also a spa on site. There is something for everyone - kids, adults, skiers, non-skiers. It is a great place, and well worth the mid-week prices. We loved it and will definitely be coming here at least once per ski season.
