Great Ski Condo w/ Pool and Hot Tub Access - Walk to Lifts

Plan the ultimate ski getaway at this welcoming, two-bedroom Ketchum vacation rental within walking distance of the lifts at Warm Springs! Perfect for family or friends traveling together, this inviting space will help you create one-of-a-kind memories year-round. The condo is nicely laid out, with a beautiful brick gas fireplace in the living room where you can warm your toes in the evenings, as well as brand new memory foam mattresses in both bedrooms (as of July 2020). In the evenings, borrow a book from the shelf and curl up on the couch for some quiet, relaxing reading time, or settle in in front of the large flatscreen TV with cable and Blu-ray for even more entertainment options.

The condo grounds are meticulously landscaped, with lush green grass in the summer and snow-covered trees in the winter. Three outdoor hot tubs are available, as well as a large outdoor pool that's heated on chillier days. The athletically inclined can practice their games on two tennis courts and two pickleball courts, and kids will love playing on the jungle gym. A beautiful shared outdoor area has a large fireplace for guest use, so be sure to pick up some steaks and beer while you're out and about.


Let's talk about skiing! From this vacation rental, the lifts at Warm Springs are just a short stroll away. Spend the day skiing or snowboarding on the slopes, then stop by Warm Springs Day Lodge at the base of Bald Mountain for a post-ski snack. Other dining options include Apple's Bar and Grill for great burgers and beer and Irving's Red Hots for Chicago-style hot dogs (please note that seasonal hours/openings may vary). Of course, winter is not the only time you'll want to visit. In summer, the area is a playground of outdoor activities, with everything from hiking and biking up and around the mountain to baitcasting, spinning, and fly fishing in Warm Springs Creek. A system of paved multi-use trails called the Wood River Trails connects many of the communities around Ketchum and is great for biking, jogging, and skating - in the winter, it's even used for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

Pros: 160 yds from Warm Springs chairlift, hot tubs were functioning, small two story condo w/gas fireplace which we used for great ambiance/heat coupled with the mountain facing windows….we double parked so parking for 2 wasn’t a problem, kitchen, if small, is pretty complete with all utensils one should need, two full baths upstairs

Cons: Expensive, no pool in the winter (which I think was advertised, no bathroom downstairs which will be a negative for many folks
Manager response:
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review Curtiss. We are happy that you enjoyed so much about the home. Although not having the pool may have been a disappointment, thank you for understanding that seasonal pools open at the discretion of the HOA and may be closed due to weather or construction. Thank you again and we hope to host you soon!

Great location. Nice lilttle spot

Comfortable and Very convenient to the Warm Springs lifts!
Wendy A. Mar 2021
Pluses: Location was great! Access was easy. Walk to the lifts. Minuses: Both beds were pretty uncomfortable. The foam was hard and after a long day of skiing it didn't give much relaxation. We had to go out and buy our own toilet paper and kleenex . . . really? Seems like such a small thing to supply that.
Manager response:
Hi Wendy, thank you for your feedback. The mananger is aware of the mattresses and is being addressed. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Nice comfy furniture and beds. Gas fireplace, functional kitchen and baths. Perfect ski condo.
Sarah m. Jul 2019
Thank you, was clean, comfortable.
Paul B. Mar 2019
Very clean and no issues. This unit is very nice but dated. The property manager Jim was great. The area is great if you are a good skier and need to be close to the lift. We had a great time.

The Prospector Condos are a short walk (4 minutes) to the lifts. The condos are old, but well maintained. The look is "woody" with plaid cloth furniture. The kitchen fully functional. There are two nice TVs and good WiFi. It is just the place for skiers to have a comfortable stay. One doesn't need a car, but it is convenient. Ketchum and Sun Valley are a 5 minute drive from Warms Springs. Free buses run regularly, as well. I would stay there again.

Great Place for our fly fishing adventure! Clean, warm and 1000 times better than a hotel room.
Veronica H. Jun 2018
Clean and comfortable. Perfect for a family of 3. Nice place to get away and relax.
Anne D. Mar 2018
Within walking distance to Warm Springs lodge. Comfortable, cozy, and convenient. We enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of skiing.
Teresa Anne Y. Oct 2017
A flashback to the 70s is nice on occasion, but not in lodging. Extremely outdated, shabby furnishings, inefficient water system, poorly placed electrical outlets and switches, some of which did not work. The old fashioned VHS TV was one of the more modern items if that gives an idea. The unit should truly be completely upgraded......
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed with their accommodations. As shown in the pictures, this unit is older, and it is priced accordingly. Thanks!

Ketchum is more than a winter destination.
Kenneth K. Aug 2017
The Prospector condos were a very pleasant surprise when we arrived. We weren't expecting much because of the excellent deal we got when we booked the reservation. As I stated above, everything was very clean and the furnishing was in very Google shape. The beds were comfortable. Loved the free wifi.
Brad B. Apr 2017
Located very close to the lifts. Great place.
Cheryl H. Apr 2017
Definitely will come back super convenient to this area nice layout comfortable living good for two couples

My two teenage boys and I enjoyed our 2nd stay at this condo for Christmas week this year! I love that it is an easy walk to Warm Springs ski lift. This year there was so much snow that the constant snowplowing of the parking area was very appreciated. The condo is simple but just want we three want, two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs and a warm sitting area, dining area and kitchen downstairs. It isn't super spacious but works very well for us. The wifi worked well. We love Sun Valley and like to have a fairly affordable option available that is in a great location! Hope to go back again soon!
Stephanie K. Sep 2016
Great place to stay on Warm Springs. Close to town and right by Baldy with access to everything the winter and summer months have to offer: skiing, hiking, mountain biking, etc. The place is dated, but all the appliances work great. Excellent place to crash for a long weekend!
Erin D. Sep 2016
Great location, great price and pet friendly. Furnishings and decor are dated, but there is so much to explore outside, who cares!
Amber J. Aug 2016
Only thing I would say about Prospector Condo for Vacasa, owner and future renters, it really needs more ventiliation, and perhaps updated windows like the rest of the property owners in complex....It is just simply too hot in Summer. I can tolerate a lot of warm weather, but without any cool down upstairs (literally cooled down about 3 degrees every night), it is very difficult to sleep ;-( It is absolutely the best location, best managed property, meaning the whole Prospector condominium complex (thanks JIm!) and best pool we have ever stayed at. We appreciate they accept dogs as most property owners in Ketchum do not and its a super dog friendly city. All and all this is our favorite property, just cannot stay again in Summer because of heat upstairs. Such a bummer and really hope they figure it out before we come back next year.
Susan V. Jul 2016
We really enjoyed our stay. The unit was very comfortable. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel - so glad we chose a condo for our family weekend in Ketchum.
Steve S. Jun 2016
Very clean and comfortable!
Elaine P. Jun 2016
Should have read more. Used pictures to quickly book and they were deceiving . No air conditioning, no deck or place to sit outdoors at all private, pool not operational, BBQ gas only and shared, washer and dryer located another building I guess, and had an overall depressing mood partially due to weather and the pictures make it appear much larger than it actually was. I believe in winter for family of 4 or a couple this would be a cozy spot but as it was summer and raining was uncomfortable.
Lisa H. Mar 2016
Great condo and Vacasa is good to work with but the property manager of this condo complex (not associated with Vacasa) is a real jerk. We have stayed at this condo for 3 years now and each time we have had a negative experience with the property manager.
John F. Mar 2016
This unit is a short walk, 200 yards, from the Warm Springs lift base. The unit was well cared for and spotlessly clean. Not a large unit in terms of square footage, but well suited for four adults. Not new, but well cared for.
Megan A. Feb 2016
Great condo walking distance to the lifts! We had plenty of space, appreciated that it was dog friendly, and enjoyed the hot tub!
Cheryl C. Oct 2015
Prospector Condo was everything we were looking for - a pet-friendly condo from which to enjoy Ketchum's hiking, shopping, and dining. For two people and and a golden retriever, we found the two bedroom/two bath layout upstairs and spacious living/dining room downstairs perfect for our needs. We cooked at the condo most of the week and took advantage of the huge fridge and powerful electric stovetop. The unit is impeccably clean, and well-appointed. They even have a jigsaw puzzle of Sun Valley! We hope to stay here again on our next visit.
Amber J. Aug 2015
This little oasis in Ketchum is truly one of a kind. While the unit is quite outdated it is very clean and has everything down to the last detail. All you need is your clothing and swim towels.
Nicole P. Jul 2015
My son and I took a quick trip to Sun Valley for my 51st birthday. Loved the location of the condo and the amenities were awesome - we plan on making this at least a every other year family get-away!
Samantha W. Jul 2015
Loved the location and great condo with great pool area!
Katherine S. Oct 2014
This was a great little condo near Ketchum. It was peaceful and cozy. The Condo was clean and cute and it was so nice to have a kitchen. I would stay here again instead of a hotel the next time I'm in town. Thanks! :-)
Ralph F. Sep 2014
Our family of 3 stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed the condo and especially the amenities offered by the Prospector. The grounds are extremely well maintained (with the exception of irresponsible dog owners) and the pool and playscape area were a real hit with our son. There's not much happening at the Warm Springs Plaza area in the summer (those lifts are not running) but the condo is just a short drive into downtown. Very comfortable place, especially after 4 days of camping!
Patrick R. Aug 2014
The condo was stunningly well managed. There were large bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in both baths, and PLENTY of extra sheets, towells, blankets and pillows in the drawers, closets and cabinets just in case we needed them. The lower front door lock (on the door handle) was very hard to open, but I am sure the management will read this feedback and get it fixed. During our stay, we just used the upper lock when we went out, with no problem. Everything worked, the TV and wifi were excellent too, and we had a spectacularly good time! We SO appreciated the EXCELLENT management of this unit and overall property. We were surprised and delighted at the quality of the way it was managed.
Manager response:
Thank you so much for the 5 star review. We will definitely have our local manager look into the sticky lock. Thank you for letting us know. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us, and look forward to your next visit!
Jonathan M. Jul 2014
We were very pleased with our recent Vacasa experience, the condition of the unit, the instructions and the Prospector condos were great. Would not hesitate to stay again. The unit was quaint and furnishings old fashioned...and we liked that. Very impressed with the cleanliness overall. Great week!
Bill P. Jul 2014
We enjoyed very much the abundance of bike paths, and the courtesy of the motorists in Ketchum. Our condo in Prospector was very nice, and the location in Warm Springs was excellent as well.
Lots of fun
Julie B. Feb 2014
We will definitely stay here again. Great price, homey, clean and convenient! Everything was as promised and more. Early check-in and late check-out was a great convenience and bonus. Thanks for a great weekend!
Cliff C. Feb 2014
The condo is exactly what it appeared in photos: somewhat dated but VERY clean. Did I mention that the place is spotless?

Location was perfect; we could easily walk to Warm Springs for skiing or to watch ski racing.

Ideally, the TV/media system would be easier to run, but we mostly got it figured out.

Great location & we hope to stay there again.
Patti B. Jan 2014
My two boys (10 and 12) and I stayed in the unit over Christmas 2013 and enjoyed all aspects of our stay (other than a lack of snow). We had a fun time playing games in the unit, watching movies and making our meals. The walk to the Warm Springs lift is super easy and the option to take the bus into town and around was great. The kitchen in the unit is a little cramped (not easy for more than one person to be in at a time) and the second bedroom a little cramped with the bed taking up most of the space. These are small nits for what otherwise is a perfect location and a dog friendly one at that.
Dale A. Sep 2013
Overall, this is a nice little condo. Very clean and comfortable for up to 4 adults. The only thing really missing was internet access. While the condo itself was great, the condo facilities were a let down. The pool was advertised as heated in cooler weather, in fact, it was closed altogether. We brought our tennis gear thinking to get in a few games on the condo courts, but the courts didn't have any nets. I realize this facility is really geared more toward skiers, but if you advertise something as being available, it should be. The ski lifts are no more than a block away, a very easy walk, so in ski season, this would be a prime location.
