Iron Horse condo description

COMFY, COZY Studio on the MOST DESIRABLE 5th floor: Iron Horse is built into a steep ridge where 5th floor units have DIRECT ski-in ski-out access - just down the hall, no need to climb stairs inside or use the elevators. A secured storage room for skis is located inside the 5th floor door. Our location is perfect for taking a break from skiing for a snack or lunch, avoiding the high costs, lines, steps, and other hassles at the base areas. The 5th floor access is great in the spring and summer, just walk out to the Corridor path and you arrive at the Winter Park base in 5 minutes.

We have two new twin-sized Lazyboy hide-a-beds in the unit along with the queen-sized Murphy bed, for sleeping four people. The decor is warm, comfortable, clean, and fun, including a clean, thermostatically-controlled gas fireplace. The kitchen is fully-equipped, with all the all the comforts and conveniences of home. The flat-screen TV receives Comcast cable and has an easy-to-use DVD player connected. The unit features a full bath with a shower tub. Several games, a deck of cards, a poker book and a few puzzles are available in the room for your stay. The balcony and windows are directly over the pool and hot tubs, with a great southeastern view of the beautiful pines covering the mountainsides nearby, all the way up to treeline and a view of the Continental Divide - just look at the pictures! The building has free wi-fi Internet access. We also have Winter Park and Colorado travel guides for your stay.

IRON HORSE RESORT:

Location and Skiing Access: The Iron Horse Resort's ski bridge to the Corridor Run is located outside the 5th floor, half way between the base of Mary Jane ski area and the base of Winter Park. Skiers ski out, down the Corridor Run to the main Zephyr lift at the base of Winter Park and ski in from the base of Mary Jane. In the Spring, Summer, and early Fall the Corridor is usually a dry walking path, with easy access to the Winter Park base area.

The Iron Horse Resort is actually IN the Arapahoe National Forest! The property is surrounded by tall pines - which can be seen in the pictures posted for this unit. The location offers seclusion from traffic and the base area - with the Winter Park base area just one-third of a mile (one-half a kilometer) away.

The Iron Horse is a true resort offering a fully-enclosed, secure parking garage, an indoor-outdoor pool, two oversized outdoor hot tubs, spa facilities, a complete fitness center with TV, adjacent, fully-equipped locker rooms with HOT, clean steam rooms, garage parking, and an on-site ski shop - including equipment rentals and all kinds of Winter gear and clothing.

THE SKI AREA:

Colorado is famous for its its amazing array of skiing options. Winter Park offers three main peaks, with a total skiable area of 3,060 acres for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and even some runs available for ski-biking at night! There are 143 trails available to skiers of all ability levels. Winter Park usually gets much more snow than most other ski areas in the state.

The Mary Jane ski area - which is connected to the Winter Park area - has some of the best mogul skiing in North America, and terrain that is perfect for intermediate to advanced skiers.

Winter Park is a town that has very comfortable, relaxed, authentic feel. A wide variety of restaurants are available, ranging from the basics, like McDonalds and Subway, to mid-scale bistros and brewpubs, to fine dining. Great barbecue, handcrafted pizzas, gourmet hot dogs, steaks, seafood, and Asian foods can all be found in downtown Winter Park. The Bistro Restaurant - open at Iron Horse during the Winter ski season - consistently receives very positive reviews from its guests.

SUMMERTIME ACTIVITIES:

Surrounded by the Arapahoe Forest, Iron Horse has a very pleasing setting for summertime visits. Gas grills and outdoor chairs and tables are available for Iron Horse guests. There is an attractive gazebo adjacent to a pond, with a brook running through the property.

The Winter Park area is a great place to escape the heat of the summer, while engaging in a range of casual to extreme outdoor activities. Great hiking, biking, and running trails abound, for all levels of personal fitness - with easy access from Iron Horse. The area offers opportunities for nature hikes, wildlife viewing, and photography. The base area of Winter Park offers chair lift rides and chair lifts for exciting, hair-raising mountain biking, as well as miniature golf, disc golf, climbing walls, and the longest Alpine Slide in the state. Several excellent golf courses are nearby, giving golfers a chance to hit the longest drives in their lives, since the altitude is over 9,000 feet! Water-related sports and activities include boating, sailing, river rafting, kayaking, fresh water fishing, ice fishing, fly fishing, and hot springs pools. Hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing are available. A brand new bowling alley and 2-plex movie theater - The Foundry - opened in Winter Park in July 2012. Rocky Mountain National Park is nearby offering additional hiking, sightseeing, stream and lake fishing, nature and wildlife viewing, picnics, and other outdoor activities. At an elevation of almost two miles, Winter Park is a great summertime destination for activities ranging from EXTREME relaxation to EXTREME workouts - which could include training at high altitude in order to achieve a personal best in a 10K run, biking events, a triathlon, half marathon, marathon or ultramarathon - especially for events that are held at lower altitudes!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: The owners of this unit are Marc & Laurie Miller, of Louisville, Colorado. Marc is the founder and owner of CORE Insights, a Boulder-based market research firm, Laurie is Dean of Instruction at Front Range Community College. We enjoy being active Coloradans, especially running, motorcycling, playing in the mountains, and trying new foods and restaurants. We will always have great recommendations for travelers visiting our condo.

                  Why the Owner Chose Iron Horse:
                  We've lived in metro Denver for over 25 years, giving us the opportunity to visit many vacation destinations throughout Colorado. We prefer Winter Park for its easy access - with no need to drive through the busy Interstate 70 tunnels, but also because it is casual, comfortable, and laid-back. The scenery is spectacular and we feel far-removed from metro Denver - rather than just 60 miles away! We chose the Iron Horse Resort as the ideal property because it is a true SKI-IN SKI-OUT location - but is also wonderful to visit year-round. Within Iron Horse, an east-facing unit on the 5th floor is the ideal location - just a walk down the hall takes you directly to the ski Corridor, for the best possible ski-in ski-out access in the Winter and access to a walk down the ski corridor in in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Iron Horse is nestled in the Arapahoe forest, but the Winter Park base area and all its amenities - including Starbucks and several nice dining choices - is just a short walk away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  At the Iron Horse visitors can relax completely, in pleasing surroundings - secluded from the busy Mary Jane and Winter Park base areas and the town of Winter Park. While relaxation is a big part of the lifestyle at the Iron Horse, visitors can play hard and work out hard. What better way to reward a day on the slopes, a 20-mile bike ride, or a 5-mile high altitude training run, than to have a spa treatment on-site, jump into the steam rooms or outdoor hot tubs? The Iron Horse is perfectly suited for maximum exertion, maximum relaxation, or a combination of both! At the Iron Horse visitors can prepare a home-cooked meal right in their unit or dine in the Iron Horse's full-service Bistro restaurant (open during the ski season). The 5th floor at the Iron Horse is absolutely perfect for skiers- but also anyone wishing to take advantage of the many outdoor activities and resort facilities available at the Iron Horse Resort.
