“Wonderful Powderhorn Vacation”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2014

We've stayed at Skyward three years now, and it is such a great location. The layout of the house is perfect for a few families to hunker down together and not feel on top of each other. Great place to stay!

“Snow Heaven”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2014

My family enjoyed Skyward very much. Trail access was good and we had excellent snow conditions. The outdoor hot tub was a hit, as was the pool table for the non-skiers. We made use of the convienent shuttle to go to the alpen Inn a few times. We would reserve Skyward for next year, except it was already booked. This was our 4th year at Powderhorn, and we will be back. Thanks to the home owner's for sharing their wonderful ski lodge. And, thanks to the always friendly & professional staff.

“Wonderful Time”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2014

I do think that this was the best year for Snow in many years. We loved Skyward since we had a big group. We did have some very bad luck. The first night we woke to no heat. It took them all day to get the heat going. It was 48 in the house very very cold. 6 of our party got stranded on the chair lift for 1.5 hours in -15. With all that bad stuff Charlene tried to make it up to us. They gave us a credit on our house and on our lift tickets. We did not have to complain much they were very understanding. We all have a wonderful time even with the other problems. We will come back next year. This is our 10th year in coming to Big Powderhorn.

We had the misfortune of having our vacation during the Polar Vortex with wind chills of 40 below zero. The ski resort was closed for our entire stay except for the last day. How fortunate we were to be staying in Skyward. We had three generations there and it was wonderful to watch the 83 year old Grandparents play pool, darts and scrabble with their grandchildren. Skyward had all the amenities which allowed the eight of us to find ways to be entertained even though we were house bound for four of our five days. My only complaint was that the window in the main level master bedroom, which is were my elderly parents stayed, leaks cold air terribly, something I did not learn of until afterward. It was also quite pricey for one family, but if split between several groups, would be ok. We all loved Skyward and the beautiful views it affords. We want to come back and will stay at Skyward again. It is peaceful and quiet yet has great ski in and out access through a small strip of trees. The staff at Bpoa were wonderful.

Response from the manager Thank you for such a creative & fun review! Those are the memories we love to hear our guests making! We look forward to seeing you again!

“Skyward is a comfortable, convenient, family-friendly getaway.”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2014

We slept 21 people comfortably. (With a few blow-up mattresses). Lots of bedrooms, with comfy beds; dishwasher and garbage disposal in the well-equipped kitchen; plenty of seating for eating and lounging; spectacular views of trees and slopes made for a winning winter experience. We especially appreciated the open floor plan, which made for easy conversation and child supervision. The lower level allowed for people who wanted some alone time to retreat for awhile. The only small dissatisfaction was the shut-down of the ski-to lift adjacent to the home because of strong (?) winds. We hope to return annually!

“Skyward reaches high!”

We love staying at Big Powderhorn Mountain and Skyward is a very comfortable, cozy spot for us all to rest after a hard day of playing. We highly recommend working with the Lodging association and

“Nice house, wish more of the mountain was open.”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2013

Comments: -Both upstairs and downstairs fireplaces were excellent at providing heat and drying gloves. -Window in downstairs bedroom was wide open (fell open, faulty latch), bad seal around window, cold air all night, but covers were adequate and plentiful. -Outside hot tub turned way down, couldn't use first night, took 24 hours to heat up. -Lots of slippery ice around hot tub and no salt to lay down. -Great ski 'in' but had to walk 'out' (up hill). Could have a ski 'out' path going other direction (down the hill). -Lots of dishes and glasses and silverware and cooking supplies. -All in all a good house. Not that it's within any of your control, but the owners of the mountain didn't seem to have much urgency in getting any more runs open. There were several runs with plenty of snow and they didn't spend much time while we were there preparing them. However, they opened them the day after we left.

“Great Place to stay”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

We have travelled to Big Powderhorn Mountain for many years for our winter ski vacation. We enjoyed our stay at Skyward. The living room and dining areas are open and a nice area to gather as a group. The kids enjoyed the lower level game room. Everyone also enjoyed the outdoor hot tub. We look forward to returning next January.

“Our summer visit to Skyward”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2012

Overall, the experience was good and we had a fun time while visiting Ironwood including some golfing. The downside was the lack of air conditioning at Skyward. We've been renting on the ski hill during the summer for 15 years and only twice did we get stuck with really hot and humid weather. Traditionally, we get a house with aC. The only additional problem was that when we opened the windows, the screens had holes in them or the screens were damaged and did not have a tight fit --- welcome the mosquitoes. Finally, some of the other large houses on the hill have had improvements in the last 5 years. Skyward seems to had minimal if any improvements. In the future I am going to make sure that for a summertime rental I have air conditioning.

“Family Reunion - Awesome rental unit with everything but aC!!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2012

We stayed in the Skyward unit on the week of July 4th. Everything was wonderful including the hot tub that we used at night! The fully equipted kitchen allowed our family to cook meals at home which saves a lot of money when you have 10 people eating. The location was close to waterfalls, Lake Superior-Little Girls Point, and lots of other sight seeing!! My father grew up in the area and we attended a family reunion. We experienced 90 degree weather while visiting. This rental has everything but aC!! We were able to keep cool in the basement during the day and the bedrooms cooled off at night so that we could sleep. I would definitely stay here again (just hopefully when it is not so hot outside).
