We did an exchange to this location since it was available the labour day week. We had amazing weather, and it was hot. We had to wait to check-in since our room wasn't ready, actually they assign the rooms as people arrive and not before. We requested a renovated room and didn't check-in until after 5pm. We also wanted a room that faced the front and not the highway, but apparently they were booked weeks in advance we were told. Oktoberfest was on that day so we took the free shuttle to Beaver Creek. The shuttle is right outside the door of Christie Lodge.
The renovated room is nice, only good for a couple or a family with a couple of kids. You have to walk through the bedroom to get to the kitchen, which is weird. The air conditioner was very noisy so we kept the patio door open, but that wasn't any better since we faced the highway and can hear the noise. There are bbq's, but if you're on the top floors you have to walk through the resort with your food to get to the bbq's. There are alot of stairs, so unless you're ok with walking up stairs you should request a lower floor.
The wine/cheese social was pretty good and they showed a good video about history of Vail.
Everything is close by...shopping, restaurants, shuttles. Vail is a 15 min drive from Avon. We had a great week in Colorado!
