Our second spring break at K2 was as expected...Great! We like this rental primarily due to the cost/location. It's easy to get to the highway from this spot and hit the other hills in the area. Proximity to Big Powderhorn is excellent as well. Sauna was good after skiing although we didn't get a cheese plate this year it was still a good experience.

The K-2 unit is the perfect little cottage for 4 people. The bedrooms are small but the beds are comfortable if you like a firm matrass.
It was clean and located just off the main road. We liked the fact that we could use the pool and sauna at the main lodge after a day of skiing.
There are so many places to ski nearby, this was a perfect location for us..
Very cozy and comfortable

We liked this chalet very much. It was well taken care of and was very comfortable. We had an incident with the thermostat for the electric heat, but the Maintenance dept. came right away and took care of it. It is an ideal place for 1-4 people. We would rent it again. Read more

Thank you for a great review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Quiet location, pet-friendly, more than adequate place to stay
Left on 03/06/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | Robert
Quiet location, pet-friendly, and only a short (free) shuttle ride to/from the lifts, lodge, Alpen Inn, etc.
K-2 has no BBQ grill, but if you say you need one when you reserve the unit, they will have one waiting for you when you arrive.
There is a dry sauna that was nice after a full day on the slopes, but give it 90-120 minutes to get up to temperature. There is a one-hour timer on the sauna room heater, so you'll have to re-start it every 60 minutes.
The dark brown wall-to-wall carpeting has seen many better days (years!), so who knows what's hiding down in there. Unless you brought your own Room Doctor, do as we did and wear your house-shoes except when sleeping or taking a shower.
One very small shower, but plenty of hot water.
The kitchen and dining areas are big, clean, and fully-equipped.
The water froze up overnight on Friday, but I called the Bpla and a team came out and got the water running again very quickly, in about an hour. It was very cold in the up the days we were staying here (26-FEB to 02-mar 2014), so I am not surprised that the water froze.
There is a good supply of family-fun board games, which is a plus.
There is a DVD player and a selection of movies, but only two, Shrek and some movie about Santa Claus, that were age-appropriate for young children.
There is a VHS player and some tapes, but we couldn't get the machine to play. Could be pilot error on our parts, but we tried a few times without success.
In summary, we came here to ski and snowboard everyday all-day from 9-5, so we aren't really all that picky about lodging. K-2 is more than adequate.
Cozy Olympic Retreat
Left on 02/20/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | The Swansons
This was our first time staying at K-2. We enjoyed watching the Olympics in the comfortable living room. The flat screen TV was a plus. We also built a cozy fire each night in the Franklin stove. The bathroom shower is a bit small but the bathroom itself had plenty of room and was always toasty warm.
The location, while not on the ski slope, was very handy, close to Ironwood and Bessemer, just off the main road. We plan to stay at K-2 again.
What a great stay!

Had another great trip to Big Powderhorn! We stayed at K2 it was nice and clean and met our needs perfectly. I've been coming to the area for the past few years but it was my fiancé's first time to the up. She'd heard all my stories and said that she was not disappointed at all. We had great weather and great snow. The first morning we woke up to frozen pipes and no water. A quick call to the main office and moments later we had people at the unit working to thaw the pipes. Within the hour they had our water running and we never had another problem. It was a great experience. I've definitely convinced my fiancé on the wonders of the Upand the great things Big Powderhorn has to offer. I can assure you we will be returning next year for the first of many years to come as a married couple! Read more

If you are ok not being close to the village, this is a great location to jump on the Highway 2. The unit itself was fine and the price was reasonable in comparison to other units. Sauna was nice after skiing all day as well. Bpla does a good job with services and we would consider staying at K2 again.

Very nice place, clean, fun, fully furnished with all the amenities! The shower is a little small though, which was our only complaint. Everything else was great!
cute and convenient

Nice 2 bedroom close to slopes. Everything was clean and in good repair. Nothing elaborate but everything you need including basic items for cooking all our meals. Nice touches included a supply of games and movies. Liked the pool option offered by the association.
Rustic romantic getaway

I went with my boyfriend and another couple! We had a wonderful time. The cabin is rustic and quiant. It is a perfect romantic get-away. The service is awesome!! The price was right. The sauna was brand new!! It was amazing! I am so glad we stayed here.

Had a wonderful time. Lots of room for the dog to run. Power went out on the night of a terrible but restored within hours. Had a problem with the tiolet leaking but was fixed within an hour and the well replenished. Location was perfect; close to everything we needed to do. The home was very clean and much more than what we expected. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Unfortunately we had come up for snowmobiling but all the snow had melted which left the trails in very poor condition. We left the next morning and returned to Minneapolis. The lady at the front desk would only return one night to me, which was the Thursday night rate. I thought this was a little unfair as the snow was out of my control. This did not leave a very good tates in my mouth as I had already spent a lot of money on gas driving 280 miles to get there and was very disappointed in the conditions.
The house was excellent except that the roof had a leak and I had to call twice to get someone to come and look at it.
