Also, the description of the "resort" as
a place that combined hints of luxury (official-looking uniforms, stylish public areas) with leaky showers and paper-thin wallsis a bit discouraging. I'm afraid I'm the type that prefers luxury to be all luxury. Then there's the caveat that you need to have avalanche managing skills. When I'm on vacation I prefer that it be relaxing and easy. It's the bunny slopes for me! Life is challenging enough, thank you.
Just as good to know what you don't want as well as what you do want. Think I'll wait until someone I know is going and is willing to take me along so I can hang out in the warm interior watching them ski.
