Great location, great condo, great experience

Our family of four (including 12 & 9 year old boys) and our yellow lab had a great weekend here. We arrived ~7:30 pm on Friday and the last four miles were pretty treacherous because of fog and mist, but once we arrived we were thrilled to see the great view of the slopes - especially during night skiing hours. The condo lights were on (exterior & interior), as was the heat, which was greatly appreciated. The stairs to the entry were covered in a snow & ice mixture that made it too slippery to let the kids safely help unload the car - this was really our only complaint about our stay here. Everything was clean and well kept; I was very grateful that the beds were already made up for us and towels were provided. Starter supplies of toilet paper and hand soap were also very appreciated. The bunk bed room was perfect for our boys and the master bedroom upstairs had plenty of space even with our large dog crate set up. There were enough drawers and closet space in the master for us to unpack a bit, but in the kids' room I kept everything in their duffles b/c there wasn't a lot of accessible storage. The kitchen had all the necessities and a few nice extras (like a crockpot - great for prepping dinner before a day of skiing). Although you can, technically, walk to the slopes from the condo (it's not far at all, a pretty walk, actually), you would arrive about mid-way up the terrain/freestyle slope. This is probably good for people who have their own snowboards or skis and are pretty skilled, but we drove to the slopes - only about 5 minutes in the car. We skiied all day Saturday, did the Sunday morning session, visited the sledding hill and the dog park after lunch, then returned to the slopes for night skiing. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit we could not figure out how to turn on the gas fireplace (and didn't want to bother the owners with it, since we were warm enough). The Netflix options on the family room TV were nice and the layout of the condo was perfect for our family. Graham was very easy to work with and all-in-all it was a great experience. We will definitely consider staying here again for future family ski trips.
