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 at SCMOUNTAINRETREATS.COM. 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!

WATCH OUT FOR GIMMICKS!
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!
WHY RENT FROM US?
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.
GUARANTEED BEST PRICE:
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.
FEES & TAXES
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%.
THINGS TO DO IN KEYSTONE:
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. Check out our website for more details on events taking place during your vacation.
Activities include championship golfing (2 courses in Keystone), Mountain biking (down, not up), Wild Life Tours, the best hiking in North America, White Water Rafting, Fly Fishing, and boating, just to name a few. There also Keystone festivals almost every weekend during the summer.

Mountain GetawayGuest comment entered by manager
The rental experience was simple and easy to execute. The directions and key pick up could not have been easier. Expedition Station and our unit were very nice. The underground parking garage was great. It was quiet and peaceful in the entire area during our stay in early August. I would recomment Summit County Mountain Retreats and Expedition Station.

Good condo to rent for vacation
we stayed in this same building twice this year. We could not wait to get back. This 8633 will be on our wish list of places to stay for a week next year. We will request it by number. It's a nice location, quiet, clean, and well kept. Good view, nice sunsets right off the balcony, and cat bird seat for winter skiing. Nice building and grounds and building well maintained. Highly recommended.

Spacious for 2 people, convenient layout, loved the gas fireplace, deck and mountain views. The high ceilings give this unit a really spacious feel. We felt this was a good value and we would certainly recommend it.

Great unitGuest comment entered by manager
Views were great, underground parking was great for security. Morning coffee on the deck was great, the management company was very helpful. Kitchen was stocked with coffee and plenty of cooking utensils. Was a great value. Crisp MT mornings and 1200 miles on the Harley what fun. Very clean and a new bed. Great for a couple.

Peaceful mountain stay!
A summer night's stay in the mountains was perfect with this condo. It had 2 excellent views, one of the ski runs and one of the mountain range to the west. Highly recommend!

Great as always
We have stayed at Expedition Station before but this was the first time in this condo. We loved it! The River Run area is so great with all kinds of things to do and is close to all the great attractions in the area around Keystone. The condo was very nice and clean and the view from the balcony is amazing. We will definitely be back again next year!
