The Gondola and Ski School are both 100 yards from the Red Hawk building. This is all part of River Run, the European style community at the base of the Keystone Mountain. From the pool and hot tub area you have an unrestricted 180 degree view of the entire Ski Area (see pics). It is quite a sight to behold at night, particularly while grilling out by the pool or enjoying the hot tub. You also have the right to use the pool and hot tubs at the Dakota Lodge and Buffalo Lodge if you so desire. The pool in our building, Red Hawk, is only for its guests however.
With its close proximity to the Gondola, it is quick and easy to stop by for a quick lunch, take a break, meet others, etc. It is also that much easier to head out for a quick night run, as River Run is illuminated for night skiing. The Summit Express, a high speed quad, also serves River Run, right next to the gondola.
The paved path to the gondola is adjacent to the Red Hawk building. This becomes the bike path in the summer and continues through Dillon then over Vail Pass all the way into the heart of Vail - a great trip to make in the summer. You will see this path in the photos; it is adjacent to the pool area.
Red Hawk Lodge and our neighbor building are the two newest buildings in River Run. As such, the buildings are just a bit higher quality, and include very nice amenities. Red Hawk's amenities include:
• free high speed internet
• heated outdoor pool with unobstructed view of ski area.
• 2 hot tubs
• steam room and sauna
• fitness room
• pool table
• Private access heated garage with elevator for Red Hawk guests exclusively. (Also free parking in the main lot for additional guests or RV’s)
• a nice area for ski lockers so you don’t have to carry all your stuff up to the condo, taking up space, etc. You can also lock up bikes down there.
• easy access to all that River Run has to offer: great bars, restaurants, ski shops, day care, the Warren Station Events Center, etc. and of course a Starbucks.
