Based on what I can see on a trail map, it looks like the Gondola can get you to both areas fairly easily.
Sufficient variety of restaurants in the Village would be my main concern.
There may not be a compelling reason to choose one area over the other, and that is ok by me. We'll simply stay where we can score the best rate within walking distance to either the lifts or Gondola in either location.
Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
