We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Oakridge Resort. The hot tubs were amazing after a days skiing and our apartment was very clean and spacious. The restaurant was very nice and cosy and overlooks pool complex. Staff were friendly and informative. Would reccommend for a family ski trip.

The main area lounge was big enough to feel comfortable in and the kitchen was well equipped. it gave us enough privacy as well. Staff were very friendly....
