I am a single father of four young skiiers. My oldest brought a friend and the six of us spent spring break in Iron Horse North. We rented a 1 bedroom unit for 6 nights. As part of the package we bought 4 lift tickets for each of us. That worked out perfectly. The accommodations were very nice. Each condo has its own ski locker at the building entrance which is very convenient. The locker was sufficient for our clan's 7 pair of skiis and a snowboard. Free parking in the garage under the condo is easily accessible.
Almost ski in ski out. It was about a 75 yard walk from our unit. They provide carts that skiis and such can be stacked on and pulled to the gondola. Sturdy carts that carried 6 pair of skiis and my princess. Great Bear lodge and Catamount lodge are closer (but further from the pool complex). The pool and hot tub complex is nice with locker rooms and a lounge area that has a pool table, foosball table seating and a big screen TV . There is also a work out room. We didn't use these as there are numerous activities in the village complex - shopping, ice skating, gas fire pits to roast marshmallows, pottery painting etc. The dining is ski resort priced but the condos have well appointed kitchens.
My only complaint was the dryer in our unit did not dry very well.
Great skiing btw. All in all this was a really good place to take the family for a ski vacation.
