You can spend a lot of time relaxing on the window seat just watching everyone ski by your window, catch the sunrise, or see the sunset shadows creep up the opposite mountains. We did some of our own cooking while we were there and the kitchenette had everything we needed. The owner has made it easy to connect to the Internet wirelessly. We had a lovely time and we'll seek out this condo again next year.
