I bedroom, $415- sleeps up to four
Location; Right smack on the World cup racecourse and Superpipe, next to the Eagle chair.
Bus to Oldtown.
One of the nicer Condos in PC. Fireplaces, parking in basement, close to everything, lots of big trees and next to three lifts, two beginner and the racer lift, which goes to the top and connects with the whole mountain. All condos privaetly owned some extremely nice.
This is new on lower Main street directly opposite the town lift. The rooms are real nice with big Jaccuzzi tubs, and fireplaces in the one bedrooms and larger. Many have nice views of the Mountain or downvalley. It's one of the few with direct access both to Main Street and the Town Lift.
Rates in Feb:
2 Bedroom (can sleep up to 6, if you figure two on the sofabed) $600.night
I bedroom: (Queen or king & sofabed) $419
Studio: 1 King bed, $309
All units have a new full kitchen. The two bedrooms are a one bedroom unit and a studio unit attached via interior doors so you'd have two kitchens and two entries. It would work well for two couples to share because you'd have nearly the privacy of a studio unit but also share a large living room with a nice fireplace and big picture window.
This is what I've found out so far.I'd like to see more recent info in the budget dept. if anyone's recently stayed at;
Apris Ski Lodge http://www.chateauapres.com/ (my old favorite)
(both resort center)
Kimbel Junction Best Western
(just down the road)
My impression is that the best deals may be had through packages at some of the condos that may also include lift tickets and even Airfare. I haven't been inside these places but they look well maintained from the street. Some of the better located condos are:
Near town lift;
Town Lift Condominiums
Lift House Condominiums
At Resort Center;
I dug some more into 1 bedrooms for $250 a night assuming 2 people to share and came up with a lot here; http://www.skiparkcityutah.net. You can put any criteria into the search engine. Bear in mind anything on Sidewinder or in Prospector is a bus ride away from Main street and the resort. Still nice though.Most of the Condos adjacent to the resort will be nice and many have wood burning fireplaces with balconies, and kitchens.
By the way, it's a pretty 45 minute drive to the Cottonwood Canyons,I used to like to stay in P.C. for the mountaintown atmosphere and Apris ski even when I was skiing Alta as a visitor. I'll gather a little info on restaurants. Most are good. El Chebasco and Taste of Saigon are best budget, Grappa and Riverhorse are best high end, and avoid Claim Jumper and Cisero's like botulism.
