River Run, Expedition Station condo description

Five Star Condo in Expedition Station, Unit # 8633

***NEW FOR 2014: Recently installed twin sized murphy bed***

UNIT SIZE AND QUALITY: *****(5 Stars). The condo is an oversized corner unit and is located on the top floor of Expedition Station. It has VAULTED CEILINGS and spectacular MOUNTAIN VIEWS. Enjoy a great night's sleep on THE NEW KING SIZED BED with luxurious bedding. Relax in bed and watch the new 32' LED TV hanging on the wall. New carpet was installed in 2012. The living room features a NEW 50' LED TV, gas fireplace and sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the essentials to cook a meal away from home with pots and pans, silverware, dishes, toaster, coffee maker, crockpot, and blender. Four people can sit comfortably at the dining room table and enjoy beautiful views of the mountains and ski slopes. To make the condo child friendly, all of the electrical outlets have covers. There is also a portable crib and lightweight stroller, so you don't have to pay to bring those items on the plane or pack them in the car. You will also enjoy the large selection of DVDs and games to play with the family in the condo (e.g. Scrabble, Monopoly, Jenga, Catch Phrase, Checkers, Chess, Dominoes, and puzzles). The owner has also recently installed a new twin sized murphy bed in the dining room area.

VIEWS **** (5 Stars) This condo features views of the ski slopes and the Gore mountain range from the balcony. From the master bedroom and living room windows, you will see the ski slopes.

BUILDING QUALITY & AMENITIES *****(5 Stars) Expedition Station was completed in the late 90’s and is one of the more exclusive buildings in the resort. This means there is less congestion in the building during busy times and all units are a short walk from the elevators. There are two high speed elevators that service 91 units. There is an access controlled, underground heated garage. Laundry facilities are located on every level of Expedition Station. Expedition Station has a spacious lobby with large, gas fireplace, sitting area, game tables, and a pool table. This building also features a heated pool , 8-person hot tub, steam room, and fitness room. The heated pool is only utilized by guests staying at Expedition Station. It is not shared with any other buildings. The pool and hot tub have views of the Gore Mountain Range.

PROXIMITY TO ACTIVITIES **** (4 Stars) When you exit Expedition Station, you will have a 1-2 minute walk to excellent businesses including restaurants, shopping, bars, winter and summer sports rentals, and great people watching. It is also approximately 150 meters to the new high speed eight passenger gondola. In your ski boots and carrying your skis, it will take about five minutes to get to the gondola.

All of our discounts are listed on our website. All discounts and services are provided by local independent businesses. No huge corporate markups!
1. 25% discount on all ski rentals and 1 FREE kids ski rental with an adult rental!
2. 20% discount on Door to Door VIP ski rentals
3. 35% discount on ground transportation from the airport
4. 10% discount on bike rentals and bike trips, white water rafting, zip lining, horseback riding, spa services and sleigh rides.
5. $10 off snowmobiling

The NUMBER ONE QUESTION we get is “Do you offer discounted lift tickets?” We do not and the reason is this: As long as you do not buy your ticket at the ticket window, ALL the discounts are the same. Do yourself a favor and stop at the kiosk at the grocery store or go to LIFTOPIA.COM and buy your tickets. We do not offer tickets because we cannot offer a better value than you can easily get using one of these options.

You might have heard of a gimmick called “Kids Ski Free” from the big corporate outfit. There are very few instances that this deal actually makes sense. Why pay twice as much for your accommodations and a $15 per day “amenities fee” to save $45 on a kids ski pass. Don’t take our word for it. Do the math and it will be obvious that “Kids Ski Free” is not a deal at all!

We are the personal property manager of the owner. We are a local family owned business.
Conventional wisdom says that you get a better deal if there is no manager involved. This is largely untrue in a high mountain environment like ours. Either the owner is using a management service on the side and ultimately building this cost into the rate or they are leaving everything to chance. Little problems are a BIG deal at 9,000 feet above sea level and in subzero temps. We are there if you lose your key. Being locked out of your condo in sub-zero temps is no fun. This is not a scare tactic. Every year we help several hundred guests with lock-out problems.

If you like to look for deals, then help us stay current with our deals. We will pay you to do your research. If you find a better deal on a comparable property, then provide us with clear evidence and we will beat the deal by 10%.
Our rates are as good as the best you will find. You are gaining peace of mind and losing nothing. Your vacation is meant to be enjoyed. We are here to make your experience hassle free.

We are required by law to charge tax on your stay.
We want to be clear, taxes and cleaning fees are not included in the posted rates. We will send you a quote with the breakdown of all costs, so you can see EXACTLY what you are paying.
Many of our competitors build their fees into their rate. This means that YOU are PENALIZED every day you stay with them because you keep paying for the same service over and over again.
Please make an apples to apples comparison. If you present us with a legitimate and comparable quote from someone else, we will beat it by 10%.

Keystone is the premier destination for various events, festivals and one-of-a-kind attractions. These include things such as Mardi Gras, Wine Festival, Beer and Blues Festival, Full Production Concerts, Discovery Days for kids, Art Shows, a real ice castle at the top of the mountain for kids and adults to explore, panning for gold, bungee jumping, and much more. Additionally, you can enjoy Mine Tours, Historical Bus Tours, ATV tours, Four-wheel drive tours, Snowmobiling, horseback riding and sleigh rides.
