Please note: the condo is in the mountains and winter weather conditions may exist. It is an easy drive to the condo, other than the 0.1 mile driveway that is steep and can be slick. 4 wheel drive and/or snow chains are suggested during the winter months. We occasionally use 4WD when it snows at the condo.
