We stayed at the Hi Country Haus 28th Feb - 7th March 2007. We had a 2 bed Condo between 4 of us and we found it to be perfectly adequate. It's not a luxury type of place to stay but the condo was clean and in good repair. Bathroom was a little dated if i was being picky and the condo was advertised by the tour operator as for 6, no way would you have enough room for 6. Could have also done with a 2nd bathroom but that's being really picky! We were in building 7 which is right at the end of the complex, and although the ski bus stopped right outside our block we did have to do a fair bit of walking, especially in the evening. Our Condo had TV/DVD player which also played music CD's, open fire very welcome as we had a few days where it was -25c with an even lower wind chill!!!!! Kitchen was well stocked with all the usuals. We did find the ski bus a bit unreliable at times but if you have a chilled out attitude to it it's not so bad! Can recommend Hernando's pizza (just round the corner from the Condo's), best pizza I've had in a while including in Italy!!
Skiing is good in WP although weekends get very busy, so expect to que, especially if the weather is nice. Mountain is split into 2, Mary Jane full of moguls, not sure if some of this is keeping the grooming costs down, even some of the blue's had moguls! We also found a lot of the greens which you need to use to get across the mountain very flat, to the point some of it was positively uphill and in fresh powder that gets hard work.
The town itself is quiet and is nowhere near as lively as Breckenridge and we were there in spring break. A lot of the restaurants close at about 9pm, even some of the bars close early, can recommend untamed steak house as we saw a very good live band there.
All in all would visit WP again and stay at Hi Country Haus, if you're going from the UK check out the bargains with Crystal Ski - we got a week for £380! You'd pay that to go to Europe and you've no guarantee of snow!!

this place is decorated in early 70s...It was cold when we were there and the place was freezing. We had Ice in the bath tub from a leak that would not stop.

no maid service... we left some bottles and cans and they charged us an extra 75 bucks...nice....

best thing that can be said for this joint is that it is cheap and you can walk to some restaurants and nite spots which is saying alot for winter park....

if you are there to ski on a budget and do not care about ambiance this is the spot.....

We really enjoyed are stay! We rented the Condo from [--]. We got a very good deal. The condo was in building 8 (there are a lot of buildings at least 25) and was recently renovated by the private owner. The buildings are fairly old, but definately nice compared to the low price of around $100 a night that we booked. Bed wasn't real comfortable, but it was nice to have kitchen, clean bathroom, and comfortable couch. Very close to ski area a short 5 minute drive. Close to shops and resturants, (I recommend Hernando's). The shuttle bus system we didn't use at the resort but it was always running and looked easy to use. We enjoyed are stay at Winter Park! If you are looking for more upscale this isn't the place compared to what the Zephr's lodge, Vintage Hotel, looked like at the ski area.

We had the best skiing experience ever at Winter Park. Don't think we ever want to ski the East again. The Hi Country Haus is a typical ski condo. We have previously stayed in them at Killington, Okemo, Mt. Snow, and Stowe. This condo was one of the nicest we have stayed in. You have to understand that you are staying in a condo, they are independently owned, so you might get lucky like we did and stay in a nice one. We were in unit 1103. A one bedroom/bathroom. Nicely decorated, clean, 2 t.v.s with cable and a DVD player/VCR with a nice collection of movies. The kitchen was nicely equiped.
With 2 kids it would have been nice to have a 2 bedroom. We brought an aero bed. Didn't open the sofa bed so we don't know how comfortable it was. We'l keep that in mind when we come back. Location is great. Very close by to resturants. We had a rental vehicle so we really can't comment on the shuttle service, but there seem to be plenty of them around. We got an unbelievabel deal out there! If we can do the same, we'l definitely be back again!

The condo itself was old and rundown. After lots of searching, we managed to find a few old cleaning rags stashed away in a very messy closet for extra towels. The beds caved in like marshmellow tacos. But, it is one of the few pet friendly places in the area. I was quoted a price when booking that turned into a lot more at check-out. I specifically turned down the cancellation insurance, but it still appeared on our bill. They said that there would be no cleaning fee involved with a two or more night stay, but a cleaning fee still appeared on our bill. Check your bill carefully!

Stayed at the Hi Country Haus Condos for Christmas 2006. We were in building number 10. It was an ok room. Nothing fancy at all about this property. Beds were not very comfortable, small bathrooms, small den area with tiny kitchen. I was not expecting all that much so I guess it was ok. I think you may be better off to pay a little more and go up a step. The worst part of this location is the constant walking. When you go ski ,the shuttle will pick you up right in front of your condo. The bus comes by every 30 minutes to the ski area. These buses will also take you back to same spot in front of your condo from the ski area.

HOWEVER,

At night when you want to go into town it is whole different deal.
You will end up walking out to the main road, about a mile distance. You then can catch shuttle buses into town from the main road. Then when you catch buses at night to come back to the condo they will NOT come down into the condo complex. They drop you off at the main road entrance and you must walk that mile back to your room. This can be a big drag in the freezing cold at night after skiing all day and eating dinner and having a few cocktails. There were times I thought I would fall into the snow drifts and go to sleep and die. It is quite tiring , so if you have issues with walking don't stay here. I was baffled that such a large ski area as winter park had such an awful shuttle bus system. The buses are old run down school buses and do not come around near enough. Winter Park really needs some improvements in this area. I was also dissapointed in the town. It is not a quaint ski town like you would think. It is very spread out and not that friendly of a resort atmosphere. Just something to keep in mind. Also , the hot tubs and pool at the High Haus are in a recreation center. You must check in at the front desk. You can't bring a beer with you and unwind. It is too structured with locker areas and such. I like a simple hot tub where people are free to bring a beer or a glass of wine with them and hang out .

Over all we had a nice time here. But , with that being said, I don't think I would stay here again. I saw several other nicer condo complexes in the area. I am sure the price was higher , but in this case I think it would be worth it to pay another 100.00 per night and go up a step. This is your vacation after all. You should be totally comfortable and enjoy yourself to the fullest. If you have any questions feel free to email me at RARNIM@AOL.COM.
