We stayed 10 nights at the Palliser. Loved every minute! We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a hot tub. The rooms were furnished beautifully and had fabulous views over the mountains. The photos do not do the apartments justice at all. The apartment was impeccably clean and well stocked. The reception staff were extremely courteous, helpful and friendly and the service was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble for them! The lodge is ski in and ski out. The ski locker room is a few steps from the back door of the lodge and key locks are available from reception to lock your skis up. There are boot dryers in the laundry cupboard in the apartments which dry 2 sets of boots at a time. It is a bonus having a washer and a large dryer and dishwasher in the apartments and they provide laundry powder and dishwasher tablets for you. The hot tub is fabulously hot and great after skiing all day. We did have a day or so without hotwater but this was because of the unusually cold -30C temps. The staff were very apologetic and maintenance were doing all they could to remedy the situation. We found using an ethernet cable gave us a better internet connection and these cables were feely available through reception. The lodge is an easy 5 min walk (if that) from the main Gondola village area and shops/bars. We liked being away from the main area at night. We cooked a couple of bbqs in the snow which was fun. The bbq area is just outside the back door of the Lodge beside a big outdoor spa.
It is well worth the trip to the Winston for dinner and a game of their large jenga blocks. The food there and the service was great. Also a must is to have a Polar Bear at Peaks Grill (a hot chocolate with baileys and peppermint schapps). Also their large nachos and yam fries will feed 6 hungry skiiers at lunchtime - great food and service there too!! My only complaint is that I had to leave. I can't wait to come back. Also the skiing was awesome!!
