A great place
David from Carrot River, Canada
Date: Mar-18-2015 for a stay in Mar 2015
This was an excellent condo to stay in. The ski in / ski out works better here than most places - out the door and down to the gondola which goes to the village and central lifts, quick and easy. Equally as easy coming back in. The electronic keypads on almost every door worked really well, except a key was needed to access the building when skiing back in. Ski lockers were great, except some kind of drainage is needed, as your equipment sits in the water from the melted snow in the bottom of the lockers.
The condo itself was quite exceptional. The photos and description on the website were very accurate. It is large, well appointed and quite comfortable. The kitchen, although very nice, lacks counter space and just space in general for more than one person to work in, but not a major issue. The middle bedroom has been converted from the den, so there is no closet. And more pegs or hooks in the entrance to hank ski clothes would be an improvement. Again, not a major issue.
The bathrooms, although very nice, are quite dark and almost gloomy - a little difficult shaving. The dining area is also quite dim - nice for intimate dining but difficult for playing cards or games. They talk about the built in sound system, but it is locked up and not accessible. We had three couples and a toddler, and there was more than enough room and dishes and cookware and everything we needed.
There was a minor issue with the fridge, and the management company responded promptly. There were a few additional very minor issues, which the management company has passed on to the owners, and I am sure they will be corrected before the next renter arrives. The BBQ and hot tub were great.
Generally speaking, an excellent rental, well priced and good value for the money.View Full Review Owner Has Responded

Fantastic family vacation location!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Fort Saskatchewan
We had a fantastic time with our family at this rental. It is in the perfect location with easy ski in/ski out access, and the games room downstairs was a hit with the kids. The steep slope getting out of the parking garage with our rental van was a challenge though due to ice.
A relaxing holiday
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Sydney Australia
I would have liked more light in the ensuite. The lighting is very dim and hard to see. Just even higher voltage light globes might be what is needed
