We stayed at the Shadowbrook condominiums for the second time. These are individually owned units, but managed through the central office. The location is perfect - you are right on the Fanny Hill ski run, so very easy to "ski in ski out". There is a small gondola that is free, going up this hill, so for little kids learning to ski, you can go out with them for a while, and when they get tired, or cold, just come in and warm up! For everyone else, just ski down to the high speed chair or the gondola and explore the best mountain for intermediate skiing in the world. The ski school at Snowmass is top knotch, for kids and adults, but is is pricey (you have to buy lift ticket and lessons).
The condos are beautiful - spacious, built for skiers, a nice pool and two hot tubs. Each unt is different, most have two bedrooms, and some have lofts or dens that can be used for extra sleeping space. Our unit had three bedrooms and a sleeping den, with four bathrooms. The kitchen was well-equiped. (You can see pictures of each unit on their website.)
But the really best thing is the warm and extremely helpful management. Sue runs things, and she is wonderful. She and the rest of the staff really work hard to meet your needs. (When our unit didn't have cake pans, they ran all over the other kitchens to find some for us.) Whether we neded something to be fixed, a babysitter, or information on local activities, they were available and quick. You are made to feel very welcome!
