The Kitchen is fully equipped to handle the hungry hoards. The bread maker and crock pot were big hits last season. There is plenty of flour, oil and yeast in the cupboard. The crock pot is invaluable in that you can prepare the day's meal in the morning and have it ready by the day's end.

This living room has a double height ceiling and an impressive bank of windows next to a river-rock style gas fireplace that's built right up to the ceiling. The hot tub is right out the sliding glass doors on the sun (aka snow) deck. You have a chesterfield, a loveseat and a single comfey chair to relax in. You're in the common area that also contains the eating and cooking areas. There's no funny step-ups or step-downs in this lower level so its very easy to move around.
The dining area is sandwiched between the cooking and living areas, and has a big rectangular wooden table that seats eight hopefully hungry and appreciative people. Two more late-comers can sit right next by at the kitchen area working island.
The loft/den area is HUGE. The original plans had the loft smaller, but it was expanded and sliding privacy doors were installed to make an optional third bedroom as a den. The third bathroom is really close to the den. This unit has an exceptional layout. The living area has a double high ceiling. Above the ceiling is the upper sleeping area. The gas fireplace has a river rock style mantle that extends right up to the ceiling. The south facing wall is completely filled with windows that have wooden venietian slats that add to the rustic yet roomy effect. This unit's layout and location gives you a quiet private convenient location on the hill Once you're inside, you have lots of room to relax and dry out, as well as lots of privacy for those who wish to chill out

Very nice accomodations for 2 families to stay for 5 nights. Skiing in to the condo was ok, however, skiing out was a bit of work especially with having some smaller children. Overall, the condo was well maintained, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed (minus a BBQ).View Full Review
