This condo is nestled right in the middle of a ski resort so it was very convenient. If you are going to rent a car, I highly suggest renting one with a bigger engine than a Nissan Versa. Our poor little rental was struggling through the mointain road (highway 40). Luckily, it wasn't snowing so the driving conditions were great. It takes a good 2 hours from Denver Airport. We had a one bedroom which the description on the website states that there is privacy for four, but this is not the case. The queen size bed was comfy. The bedroom had a sliding door instead of a bedroom door, and it would not close all the way. It kept sliding open, I finally had to shove something underneath it so it would stop. Other than that, the condo was great. My relatives did not complain much of the fold out bed, other than it would not lock open. It was clean, the kitchen had all the amenities. There was a hot tub that easily seats four right inside the condo next to the bedroom. We opened the windows and it was nice and steamy. We had a great view facing the mountains. There was a gas fireplace that helped keep the condo warm. The staff were very friendly and there was a reception going on when we got there of chili, hot dogs and beer, all free. The ski resort, Granby Ranch, was right down the road. Our first night consisted of night tubing down the bunny slope. What fun! The next two days were all skiing, with very reasonable prices. There were four chair lifts that took skiers to a bunny slope and two mountains with blue to black difficulties. I highly suggest going to the Granby Ranch website and registering for their email alerts. We all got coupons for $10 off our lift tickets. The staff at Granby Ranch were all very friendly and helpful, especially for the skiers (like me) who were always face first in the snow. I highly recommend this resort for beginner and intermediate skiers/snowboarders. Winter Park is up the road about 20 minutes away if you need more of a challenge.
