Summer arrival and check-in

If you are arriving by car this summer, check-in will NOT be at the Snakedance Condos. Instead, it will be at the lower entrance to the studios - this is the first right turn after entering The Ski Valley. We will have more details and specific directions as we get closer to summer.
(**subject to change - please keep an eye on this page**).
