Yeah, by village I meant on mountain, ski in/out. The Northstar and Squaw villages are right there on the mountain. It's not like some other villages where you are more in town and have to catch a shuttle. I should have clarified.
Got it, thanks. Being on the mountain would be a plus, but we also like some sort 'village feel' (a few restaurants, place for coffee, etc.).
Different question: I have read that the road long the west side of the lake is often closed when it snows. Hope that will not be an issue at that time (around New Year), but if it does get closed how far can you typically go? Is Homewood still reachable or would it already affected by the closure?
