Skiing was great. Lots of good runs.
Accomodations run down and resort clearly mismanaged.

Full review

We spent 3 days skiing at White Cap this January. We purchased the 3 day Slalom package that included rentals, lodging, 3 breakfasts, 2 dinners, 3 ski lessons and lift tickets for 3 days. This was our first time skiing so we took advantage of the ski lessons that came with the package. The lessons were good and we enjoyed the vast variety of beginner runs on the mountains. However, the skiing and the lessons were the only good thing about WhiteCap. The accommodations (we stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet in the Sarajevo building) were outdated and very modest. The beds were very uncomfortable and the living area left much to be desired. The breakfast at WhiteCap was comparable to low quality institutional food and consisted everyday of greasy potatoes and eggs. The one dinner we had was acceptable, but we did not even get to have our second dinner in our package because the dining room was closed. When we brought this to the attention of one staff member, he attempted to accommodate us, but his attempts were thwarted by another employee who pretty much told us we were out of luck and gave us directions to a nearby town for dinner. Another downside was that the bar and wine hut that WhiteCap advertises on its website was never open during our stay there. Overall, we would recommend going to WhiteCap for the day to enjoy the skiing, but would not recommend staying at the resort as it is clearly rundown and mismanaged.
