Hurricane If I remember correctly that was the case last time I was there 2 years ago. We stayed at the super 8 and was cheaper to get the room directly off the super 8 website. We then ordered a 2 day pass online.

So you won't be here the 25-27th? Haha, I just got approved off for that weekend. I'll scratch that and see if I can move it to Feb. 1-3

Derp Here it goes...

GP doesn't make a dime off of the hotels, but sometimes if you go through a 3rd party site you might find a better deal. Your best bet is to -

Book your hotel on the hotel website.

Grab your lift tickets off the GP site (you save $ by doing that vs going directly to the ticket window and purchasing)

AFAIK the only exception to this rule is if you are participating in one of their "Family Fest" weekends and are bringing a family of 4.

That is surprising considering GP works closely with all of the hotels in the area. They really depend on the people that GP brings in, especially with no snowmobile trails being open here.

I'll talk to the misses about that.

As far as a hotel goes, depends on how close you want to be to the hill. I definitely recommend Hampton as they have a great heated pool for relaxing. They are also a 5 minute drive from GP.

And Day's Inn is pretty sketch.

I'll probably be at the bottom of Comet after 3:30pm so ask for Mike if you have any questions or need bar/food recommendations.
Great thanks for the info man. Any recommendations for a cheap hotel? Anyplace other than motel 6! Stayed there 2 years ago and the beds killed my back, felt like a sofa sleeper.
