2. Plan a balance of home-cooked meals and dining out. The condo you have rented with Lodging Ovations has a fully equipped kitchen and the Creekside Market grocery store is less than 2 minute walk away.

3. Après at Dusty’s Bar and BBQ and eat in or take out breakfast from Dusty’s Backside. We recommend ordering one of Dusty’s famous Caesar’s and their delicious Champs burger.

They will be able to give you insider tips, information on events happening during your stay and advise on dining and activity options. Once you've decided where you would like to dine and what you'd like to do they will be happy to make reservations for you.

9. Last but not least, enjoy some down time at your hotel. Take an afternoon soak in the hot tub, read a book by the fire, enjoy a relaxing bath, take in the views from your balcony, watch skiers ski down the mountain, play a game of pool or watch a movie in the theater at Evolution and Legends and most importantly spend time with your loved ones.
