The only slope side option in Winter Park
Posted Dec 31, 2016
Staying at Zephyr saves you the trouble of driving to the base or carrying your skies across the road and is close to the Zephyr lift, although it is not ski in or out. The units are functional and delivered clean, but decor is very basic. Keep in mind that ski school is still about a quarter mile walk in the snow away from Zephyr, carrying your equipment and your kids'. It is a condo rental with very few hotel services or ski help. Ffor example your room only gets serviced every three days and only if you stay longer than five days. It also takes many tries to get the services that are provided such as maintenance. There is no valet service, no boot driers, no help with luggage, and certainly no restaurants or room service. The decor and furnishing are very basic. If you stay in the slope side building, the hot tub is exposed to a wind tunnel which often makes for a very unpleasant experience. Parking is not expensive but you have to take a ticket coming in and pay every time you leave.
