Wonderful Group Vacation A review of EagleRidge Lodge
We could not have asked for a better long weekend ski vacation in Steamboat. Having never been there before, I was a bit timid about making lodging accommodations for a group of 7 adults and 2 children. We could not have been more pleased with Eagle Ridge. We stayed in a 4 bedroom/3.5 bath townhouse - the top floor had 2 bedrooms each with their own bathroom and flat screen tvs, the main floor had a half bath, with the kitchen and living room area, and the bottom floor had two bedrooms with a separate full bathroom and little play area with a TV.
The kitchen was top of the line complete with everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner. The view out the balcony was wonderful. Wished we had a grill, but did just fine without one.
There was no need to rent a car. We took Alpine taxi to and from the airport and used the various transportation options to get around town and around the ski village. The Eagle Ridge shuttle was wonderful - we just called it came right to our door and took us anywhere we wanted to go around the village. The downtown shuttle is on an hourly schedule and makes stops at the city market center (grocery store, walmart, liquor store) and then into town. We actually took the Steamboat city bus back from town one night which was easy to use as well.
We rented our skis and boots from Terry's Sports - its right by Slope Side restaurant and they let you store your skis and poles overnight so you don't have to lug them around.
One thing to note, although the description says 250 yards to the gondola, it's definitely not a straight shot. We took the shuttle there and back each time and I wouldn't go there expecting to walk back and forth from the ski area to the house.
We would definitely go back and stay at Eagle Ridge again!
