Anonymous_: Here's my suggestion for you based on your wife's interested. Remember, "Happy Wife, Happy Life".
If you wife is:
1. Athletic and/or hiker: Snowcreek (any), Wildflower, or Mammoth Creek condominiums. Wide open spaces, and access to the Snowcreek Athletic Club (for a fee).
2. Shopper: The Village. Not tons of shops there, but definitely more of an "urban" setting in a multi-story complex.
3. Can't leave her family too long: If she wants to hang out at the lodge while you're skiing - anywhere in town. The shuttle will get her to Main and back to pretty much anywhere.
That's my $0.02. Good luck and have fun. Remember, HWHL.
What am I on? I'm on my bike for 8 hours a day. That's what I'm on! Lance Armstrong
