Full review

We love Shanty Creek! We come a few times a year, once every year with a large group of friends and stay at Summit Mountain, the Lakeview Hotel which is FABULOUS. Can NOT say enough about Summit - especially the rooms you can ski out of. The hotel itself is quite beautiful and the restaurant and its setting are gorgeous. The food, however, is pricy especially given the size of the portions. 3 tapas style selections for $25 and my 12 year old daughter could have eaten a double portion of everything. A "giant" meatball for $8 was maybe 3-4 bites. Chicken satay for $7? It was 2 small bites of chicken. Go for the bar menu instead if you are hungry. Reception staff is exceptional and accommodating. Sadly, we found the rest of the staff was only too happy to say NO without even thinking. Ivan's restaurant at main Schuss hill has terrible service and rude servers. Disappointing. Despite these few complaints, we really do love Shanty Creek. It is a magical place and super family friendly, especially for new skiers/snowboarders. We always stay at Summit so can't comment on accommodations at Schuss.
