Jennifer, Thank you for the upgrade to the home with the pool. I do not know if you visit it often but it needs some TLC There are a ton of burnt out bulbs, an ant problem in the pool area and generally it needs to be gone through and have maintainence. Your location and site was amazing. It was however not very neat, clean or organized for use. Also, I would recommend instructions for tv use and internet. There were none on site, and all the batteries for the remotes were near dead which caused a lot of issues with the use of the tvs.

Excellent Gathering Spot for Departmental Ski Trip
I organized a departmental ski trip for other PhD students in my department and another department. We had 20 attendees total; we drove up from Evanston (4hrs) in six cars. We had no issues sleeping everyone. There are only two bathrooms, which can be a limiting factor if everyone expects to shower. Most of our group downhill skied on Saturday at Granite Peak. We fortunately came immediately after the first snow storm of the season; it was good quality skiing, even compared to western US skiing. I took folks in my carpool to cross-country ski on Sunday at the Nine Mile Forest Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing compound. This compound was clean and serene - certainly worth the entrance fee. Jennifer was a responsive, kind, and organized host. The house is well-designed for large groups: we made tacos on Saturday evening with an enormous variety of meats (5) and toppings (~15). The kitchen was well-stocked and we could prepare our meal without issue. The large island allowed a large number of people to cut and prepare food in parallel; it was a lot of fun but also efficient. The couch area is also quite large and allowed us to transition into a game night easily. Overall, I highly recommend this location for a large gathering.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience
From booking thru checkin/checkout, this was a great experience. Hosts were super responsive to any questions even with it being a holiday week. The house was exactly as advertised, spacious with plenty of room for our family and their friends. The ski-room was very convenient for storing our ski gear overnight. The location was incredible. Loved being able to just drop the kids off at the top of the mountain vs having to go around Rib and finding parking (just make sure your skiiers are aware the slopes from the top parking lot are not exactly beginner friendly. Fine for most of our group, but we did still have a few that were more comfortable making the trip down to the base and staying on greens). Super convenient either way. Most of all wanted to commend the hosts, I've stayed at many properties with this large group and it was great to have a homeowner so quickly responsive to the variety of questions that always popup. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us, we look forward to staying here again!
