About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-18)

The Highlands gondola serves the new Ritz-Carlton Hotel and mid-mountain The entrance is about 50 yards from our home. You can take it free to the hotel and the hotel restaurants and amenities or use it to access the whole mountain with a lift ticket.
