“Great Location. Just as advertised.”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Slopes are right behind unit and easily accessible plus expert slopes - "Western Territory" just across the street. Unit is a typical ski lodge and very comfortable and roomy. Enjoyed the fireplace with plenty of firewood available. Mattresses in rooms other than master need updating. Main TV could be a little better but OK. Would definitely stay here again.

“Great location!”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed in Whistlepunk #1 the end of January with friends and had a great time. The location is great for several reasons: it is ski in/ski out at the top of Powdermonkey Lift, it is adjacent to the path that leads across the road to the Western Territory slopes, it is adjacent to the Alpine Ristorante and the Trailside Cafe, and it is a short distance away from a shuttle stop.

The following items need to be addressed: 1) there is no hairdryer in the master bath, 2) it is very difficult to turn the water on in the downstairs guest bath sink, 3) the upstairs bath sink has no hot water, and 4) there are no matches with which to light the fireplace. A password is not needed to use the WiFi, hence it is unsecured so users beware.

Hi, Jane, Whistlepunk # 1 is a great location, with the ski trails out front, and a great restaurant right next door. All the items you mentioned in your comments have been addressed already. We don't put matches in rentals due to safety reasons with kids. By fall 2016 Whistlepunk will be on the new fiber-optic wifi system and the new modem will have a password. Technology is finally catching up with us in the wilderness !

“Incredible location, and great accommodations”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

First of all the location on top of Whistlepunk Trail is awesome, you less than 100 yards from the lift. Kip and the team were amazing to deal with from the very first interaction to getting advice from them on handling the 13.5 inches of snow that we had to drive through to leave the ski area. The condo is well furnished with everything that you need for a restful nights rest, cooking meals, and relaxing after a long day on the trails.

“Perfect accommodations for our group of 9”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This unit was just as presented and perfect for our group of 4 teen age boys, 2 teenage girls and 3 adults. The bedrooms are all large and the 3rd bedroom upstairs with 2 double beds and bathroom was perfect for the boys. We really liked having 3 full bathrooms and good size den/sitting area with two couches. Pictures on Snowshoe Real Estate accurtely portrayed the property and it was very well stocked with paper goods, consumables just as promised. There is not a unit with any closer access to NW Territory than Whistlepunk 1, and returning to unit after a day on the slopes is easy geting off the Powder Monkey lift and skiing straight to WP1. Easy walk to the Village and a coffee shop just steps away at the Cordurory Inn. Snowshoe Real Estate check in and out procedure is awesome - no time wasted with everything taken care of in advance by email. Parking at door, bus stop directly across the street for easy access to Silver Creek. Great views of the mountains from den and master bedroom. Great accommodations and a great time at Snowshow. Will definitely consider WP1 for future accommodations.
