Decent slopes and snow quality
Ski & Stay packages are a joke

Full review

We went skiing to ASM for the first time last week. I felt that the slopes and snow quality were decent considering it's North Carolina. The ski school was ok - I took two private lessons which were good, my toddler did the ski school on two separate days (a Fri and a holiday Sat which turned out to be busy so she didn't get so much actual skiing in). We decided to book to go back in Feb. We thought a ski & stay package would offer financial incentives and/or convenience. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer either and the ski & stay package agents refuse to admit that. Within less than 24 hours of booking, I realized that they didn't give us the best available lodging rate (booking with the lodge directly would have been cheaper). I called and they told me I could cancel and re-book for a 10% fee... I escalated our case to a manager and she was quite unprofessional and used poor language. For example, she gave me a lecture on how Americans need to walk more when I complained that, once on the mountain, I now have to go to their office before checking in for ski school which is a hassle with a toddler and all the gear in tow. As another example, she actually told me that my frustrations and complains were "ludicrous". Next time, I plan to book everything separately and not deal with the bad service.
