    • Best place to stay

      "We've come to stay at the Alpine Inn for spring break a few times and love it! The hotel is comfortable, the atmosphere warm and inviting and both the restaurant and bar offer good food and fun. Hard to beat the convenience of the ski in/out location, too.
      See you again"
