Parents / Winters Creek Lodge
Dining and short-term use of the Winters Creek Lodge is welcomed by all our guests (including Ski Team Parents) as the facility is intended to operate on the idea of flipping seats to accommodate multiple guests over a given period. This turnover of seats is especially key on “weather days” when more guests are looking for a quick break from the cold.
Ski Team Parents are asked to not occupy seats inside the Winters Creek Lodge for extended periods (AKA camping out with a laptop for several hours.)
