About Lanny Greenhalgh
We are the Greenhalgh family, owners of Ichthys Winter Park LLC, and live in south-central Nebraska raising crops, cattle, and as you can see, KIDS!!! We homeschool and use that opportunity to teach the children about the importance of enterprise, to the glory of God. By the age of 7 each child is required to have their own business. Robert milks, Ashley does eggs, Hannah bakes, David raises hogs and Rachel does sheep. They all also have their daily chores to do around the house. As we prepared the Winter Park property for rental each child was assigned various duties. There was a lot of cleaning to do, there were several shelving units and other items to assemble and my then 12-year old daughter installed the new thermostats! We have a motto in our household that states, 'Work first, play later.' This Winter Park property is the culmination of God blessing a lot of work so that we can now have some play time. We expect the children to learn numerous lessons about the upkeep of a property and about the blessings of being able to enjoy it.

Why Lanny Greenhalgh chose Winter Park
We have traveled to many places over the years on family vacations and found none we prefer over Winter Park, CO. Skiing and snowboarding top the list but there are so many other things to do and enjoy. In the winter there are snowmobiling rentals nearby and many other activities. The children love the Coca-Cola tubing, we also tube at the YMCA and there is a tube hill in Fraser. During the summer nothing beats downhill mountain biking (after being carried to the top of the mountain on a lift). It is a huge thrill. Plenty of other hiking and biking activities in the summer as well. There is an alpine slide, mini golf, bounce houses, zip line and other activities at the base of the mountain in the summer time. The YMCA I mentioned, called Snow Mountain Ranch, is near Winter Park and is loaded with family fun opportunities. Some golf courses with the most amazing views are located a few minutes of our property. Our children also thoroughly enjoy white water rafting. Winter Park is a year-round vacation playground.
What makes this Townhome unique
The Base Camp on Jane Creek 464 property is unique in that it's not just a place to stay, it's a place to enjoy living. We've built some very good memories staying in the smallest places possible on our trips, but we didn't want to purchase a unit like that. We looked at several properties in WP that would have been large enough to hold us. However, staying at a place and being on top of each other all of the time is not the most enjoyable way to spend a vacation. When we were looking for a place it was also crucial to us that the children be able to easily access the base ski lifts. We originally thought that the Zephyr Mountain Lodge units were the only properties that fit this bill. We were wrong! Since the green line bus route stops a short distance from our door and drops you off at the base, it is arguable that we are now closer to the lifts than if we had a ZML unit. The green line is the only colored shuttle line that drops you off right by the Zephyr and Arrow lifts, with all of the other routes you must walk through the entire village to get to the lifts. We are VERY thankful that base access is so easily available. Our 8 year-old can safely and easily navigate himself to the base for skiing, snowboarding and other activities. If the bus system isn't enough, we also have ski in/ski out access via the ski corridor behind the unit. Easy lift access is very important to us and we think you will find it to be very enjoyable as well. If you need to stop mid-day with a little one you won't be gone from the slopes for long to take them home.

Great location and comfortable housing for annual guys ski trip
The kitchen, dining, and living areas were very spacious and well furnished and we all had comfortable bedding. The location was convenient to skiing and the walk to the trail was a nice warm-up for the day. The property manager was quick to respond and we would stay at this property again in the future!
What a wonderful home!
This home was Absolutely wonderful. The location was perfect as it was kind of off the beaten path but also in the middle of everything. It was easy to access the mountain which was great. Personally I love the Holmes kitchen it was fun to cooking. The hot tub was great after a long day of skiing. And everyone had plenty of space and this perfect mountain condo. The owners were very communicative because I had some challenges getting into the place. But they were there every step of the way. I would definitely stay here again.
Oh, and we saw a mama and baby moves right outside of the driveway!
Hello J. Thank you for these KIND words!! We appreciate our guests' business but we especially appreciate it when they voice their enjoyment of the property.
I assume you meant moose on the last line. We regularly see moose and fox around the property and on a couple of occasions a bear has wondered into the circle. To other potential guests, be careful but enjoy the sight of these beasts!
Great family friendly home!
Our family loved this place! We had 9 adults and 3 kids (ages 2-7) get together for a family ski vacation. It is a gorgeous home with all the space and amenities you would want. Our little kids loved the toys provided in the home and they were able to play in the snow around the property. The adults loved the separation of the spaces. We had some early birds and late nighters in our group and everyone was able to do their own thing without bothering others. Huge bonus that the bedrooms were away from the main living area so the kids didn’t get woken up! We loved the ski in/ski out access via a short hike to Corridor (green run). Everyone in our group that skied (age range 7-70) was able to do it. If you’re not into the walk you can catch the bus very close by or drive and park at the resort. The owner was also very responsive to any questions we had about the property. We would highly recommend this place and would definitely consider staying there again.
Ski get away
We truly enjoyed our stay in this townhouse at Winter Park. The home was large, well appointed and perfect for our large group. The only disappointment was the walk to the ski in/out. I have learned from several years of renting ski in/out properties that that term can mean many things. This property was about a 5 minute walk to the slope, which is not far. But when you added in the 22 inches of fresh powder and 10 or so steps in ski boots, it was a little challenging for some in our group. Overall we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for helping us have a great trip.
Winter Park Excellence
We had an awesome stay at Lanny's property. Check in was seamless, and there was a ton of space for our crew. We had a work event there so it was one female and 8 of us guys and we all had tons of space and super comfortable beds for everyone. The kitchen has tons of appliances, coffee and tea makers so everyone could get what they wanted on the morning. At night we had some great pizza delivered from Zephyr Zza and we had some takeout the next night from New Hong Kong. There is a massive 70+" TV in the room we called the Zen Den where we watched the Superbowl so that was pretty cool after a day of setup. Garage was great too for extra parking. After skiing definitely take advantage of the hot tub on the deck, it was nice and hot when we got there and perfect to have a beer in and unwind after being on the slopes all day. If our work brings us back to Winter Park again next year we won't hesitate to book this spot again it was perfect. Thanks again!
