Great base for a ski trip

A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights in early Feb 2011 for a dedicated ski trip to Deer Valley, The Canyons and Solitude or Alta. I know the area pretty well as we ski here often.
The condo was well fitted and was more than adequate for our needs, which were basically sleeping, showering, light breakfast and then hitting the slopes.
The free Park City Transport bus stop is within 3 mins walking distance making it very easy to get to the resorts. We rented from Jans near to Park City and opposite Cole Sports (rent in advance to get good rates). We ate at Fuegos Italian restaurant, which is just round the corner and within 5 mins walking distance. The condo is opposite The Grub Steak restaurant, which is a little pricey but good to use for the night you arrive and are feeling a little travel weary.
If you register with www.parkcity.com you can get a Free Ski Pass voucher. Just arrive at the restort (Deer Valley, Park City or Canyons) with your voucher and airplane boarding card/ticket and present your out of state ID; you will get a free lift ticket for that day. So we arrived at 10am and were skiing around 12:45pm at Deer Valley; great deal (some dates like spring break are not valid for the free ski pass).
The condo was clean and warm. There is a convenient ski rack near the door. Not having chairs in the room wasn't a problem as we were either skiing or taking it easy after the evening meal propped up on pillows and watching movies.
May be a bit tight for a four as there isn't a great deal of room to run around, but there is room to stash your clothes when unpacked.
Overall we got a great deal and the condo suited our needs perfectly.
Tourists without a Car,
