Key differences in comparing our condo to others:

Our condo is:

1. 25% larger than most 2 bedrooms-note distance from fireplace to back window (1100ft)

2. Is a penthouse with vaulted celings.

3. Has more real beds 2 Kings (King and bunk bed in 1 room, King in the other + sofa sleeper + crib)

4. Has a larger deck with grill

5. Is in the slopeside building which has direct ski-in out access. We are THE closest bldg to slopes in all of WP. Look at a ski map.

6. Has been renovated and updated

7. You are guaranteed of where you will be. Going through the lodge you may end up with a 1st floor unit looking at construction.

8. Is quiet because it's a top floor end unit with no units across the hall. In other units it is possible to hear neighbors, snowcats, people in the hallway, the train etc. I've stayed in riverside bldg of zephyr and heard buses backing up and I've stayed in Fraser crossing and heard loud people from the central hot tub and hallways. I'm in Fraser C now and it's unbelievably loud.

NOTE: the new base village is complete. However this means that if you do not stay at the base you will have to :

drive to upper parking lot (10 min), change (10 min) walk to new gondola that goes from lot to start of new village (5 min), wait for gondola (5 min), walk from gondola through village just to get to Zephyr. ( 5 min). It can add at least half an hour each way. OR you can stay at the zephyr roll out of bed and ski (no walking) to zephyr lift.

Or wait and take shuttle bus (20 min) to start of new village and walk 5 min to zephyr.

Even if you stay at the base there is still a walk from any base building to the zephyr lift. Ours (slopeside) is the only bldg you can ski down to the lift with no walking at all. See photo and look at ski map.

How can it get any better?! Zephyr Mountain Lodge is the only property located in the center of the action at the base of Winter Park Ski Area. Hence it's the only true ski-in-out (no cat walks). Built in 2000, it's also a newer property. Hallways, common areas, lobbies have all been completely renovated in 2009. So why should you rent from us?

Convenience-convenience. You don't want to waste time on your vacation and ski-in-out is the way to go. The lift is literally outside the door (110 feet away). We are in the Slopeside building so you can literally ski right to the door. For the Riverside, fraser or founders building (not us) you have to walk a little bit.Think of it-drop the kids off at ski school then walk back, stop at Starbucks, and leisurely put on your skis while everybody else walks from their car.

Too warm? Go back and shed a layer. Two feet of powder and you can't wait for the slow pokes to get ready? Just go and meet them in a few runs. Hungry? Go back for lunch, take off your boots, relax. If somebody in your group gets tired just send them back while you ski. If you drive or take a shuttle it adds at least 20-30 minutes each way and you still have to walk with skis and take everything with you. Since you go as a group, you end up wasting time waiting for people. You get a lot more skiing done with a ski-in/out Condo. The rental shops are right there as well.

Larger is better. Our unit is a Penthouse end unit. It has vaulted ceilings and its quiet. There is nobody next to you, above you, or even across the hall. At 1100 square feet it is larger than a standard two bedroom which is 868 square foot. Most two bedrooms at the Zephyr have only enough room for one bed in each room. Our unit has a king and a bunk bed in one room and a king in the other with space left over for a crib or mattress. Our balcony is also larger. Of course you also have access to four hot tubs, a fitness center, private ski lockers, a game room and heated underground parking.

Internet access- We have wireless internet access in the condo.

As you are renting directly from the owners we offer discounted rates and try to be reasonable. If you find a lower rate through the Lodge we will beat it.

The best reason to rent from us? We can tell you all about the secret powder stashes, glades, where to avoid crowds and icy spots and just how to ski the mountain.

Still not decided about Winter Park? Winter Park consistently gets more snow on a daily basis than resorts in Summit county. Mary Jane has the best bumps in the nation. You can ski for days without doing the same line. There's glade skiing (improved this year), above tree line skiing, hike to adventure skiing in the Cirque. Of course there's plenty of cruisers and the ski school is great. There is a separate learning area for beginners with magic carpets. There is fantastic cross country skiing at YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch and Devil's thumb and some of the best snowmobiling too. It the summer there are mountain bike trails galore (500 miles) and Rocky Mountain National Park is close by. At the base there is an alpine slide, trampoline, mini golf, chairlift rides, hiking and a human maze. This year Winter Park has added lifts and done many improvements.

Why The Owner chose Winter Park Area

Having kids that are in ski school and the competition center, we just roll out of bed and drop them off

What makes this condo unique

Convenience. The only building in winter park where you can ski from the door to the zephyr lift and ski back to the door

Great location, great host!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a ski in, ski out, this is the place. Took our 3 kids and it was a perfect place to be able to focus on skiing and no wasted time traveling. The owner is great and makes everything so easy. Read his information and you will have a low stress, high fun experience at one of the best parks in North America! The condo is on the top floor so when it comes to getting the elevator in the AM, you will be able to load and go, while other floors might have to wait. We were there on one of the busiest weekends of the year and it was no issue at all. Do it!

Owner's Response: Thx J, Glad you had a great time! Other benefits of the top floor are that there are half as many condos on our floor (and vaulted ceilings) which make it very quiet. I've stayed at my friends condo in riverside and Fraser crossing (when mine was booked) and couldn't believe how noisy it was from hot tubbers, hallway people, buses backing up, snocats, and upstairs neighbors. We hear none of that in our unit.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

True Ski In/Out. Updated, clean with comfortable beds. Great Hot Tub setup for resting score legs. Well equipped with small condiments (coffee filters, salt, pepper, oil, mustard, etc) that a lot of rental remove. Really great rental experience.

Perfect ski in ski out condo at Winter Park

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely stay in the this unit. The owner is gracious and prompt in his email communications. The unit is very spacious, comfy and well equipped. There is more room than we anticipated and the unit couldnt be more convenient. You will have a great stay if you choose this property.

Owner's Response: Thx Barbara, We love the room too! When we looked for units, the standard 2 bedroom units only had enough room for one queen. When we looked at other floors and realized that they put 2 units in the same space as ours, we were sold. Plus there is no hallway, train, or snowcat noise!

Just returned and had a fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I can't say enough about this property. Absolutely wonderful. Very convenient to everything in the resort.

We saw one other person on our half of the 7th floor the entire week. Unbelievably quiet and the condo was just perfect for my family of four. There was plenty of room to spare.

We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thx! We like how quiet it is. You don't appreciate the quietness until you stay somewhere else. We stayed in a friends condo and couldn't believe the noise from neighbors, the hallway, buses backing up, and trains. Hope you liked the renovations. After 14 years, things needed redoing.

Wonderful summer stay in the heart of the Village

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience. The bar has been set incredibly high! The condo was exactly as described. The bedrooms were huge. The large deck was nice to look over the village and people watch. The vaulted ceilings in every room were great. We had two 21-year-olds and a 13-year-old in the second bedroom. The 3 of them had plenty of room and 2 large, comfortable beds. The location at the end of the hallway was very quiet. The two hot tubs outside the building were also a great treat. David was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and was very flexible with check-in and check-out since we were there at a slower time. Winter Park is a great summer place to go. Restaurants, shops and bars right out the door. Lots of activities for kids -- Alpine Slide, mini-golf, etc... I highly recommend this property. Only issue for summer visitors -- condo has one fan, but windows don't open all the way and it is difficult to get a cross breeze. Next time we come we will bring an extra fan to help circulate the wonderful mountain air. Again, the condo met or exceeded all of my family's expectations. We are talking about making this an annual trip and we will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thx Karen. Glad you had a good time. We actually are planning some major renovations this fall on the bathrooms and doing hardwood floors. The lodge also just recently greatly improved the wifi. So hopefully if you come back, it'll be even better!
