Comments from Luxury Catered Chalet guests

Thank you very much for your help in what was a very memorable ski trip for our group!  I cannot say enough about Britta's and Tony's efforts.  They were professional, friendly and took care of every detail with perfection.  The chefs and meals were also terrific. We greatly enjoyed our stay and Moving Mountains is to be commended.

- The Hollister Group, New Zealand & USA

Fantastic facilities, well run, excellent staff. Cannot speak too highly of them, especially Tony, Sarah, Donna, Lulu & Britta. Very professional, courteous and helpful all the time. Nothing was too much trouble.

- Donald Webster (from the Hollister Group)

Moving Mountains made our trip a true vacation. We were VERY well taken care of by Alex, Karen and Raul. They were so friendly and helpful. They were responsive to our every need and request. Really just an amazing level of service. We were very happy and will recommend Moving Mountains highly. They went above and beyond to help and were so friendly and fun also. We all just loved them, especially the kids. The food was delicious and Karen was incredible at juggling our diverse food preferences.

We will HIGHLY recommend the full-service package. As a mom with three small children, most of the things Alex, Raul and Karen took care of for us are usually my job. All the extras the full service catered package provided allowed us to have time to visit with our family and not have to worry about "what's for dinner" after coming home from skiing, renting a car, driving to and from the lifts, and not having to grocery shop for all the meals we enjoyed. I loved having a "real vacation" for once!!! Such a luxury! And very worth the price.

We wanted to take all the staff home with us... they became like family and really made our stay even more enjoyable!

- The Fowler Family, Houston, TX

We've had three great staffs, but this was the best. Karen and Britta were excellent and Raul was his usual wonderful self.

- The Alred Family, Guntersville, AL

What can I say - a very opulent place where we had a great time! The staff, the service, and everything was excellent!! A most excellent stay with a special thanks to Britta and Lulu, Thanks!!

- The Sormberger Family, Double Oak, TX

Raul and Tim were excellent. They were beyond helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed being with them.

- The Abbott Family, New Orleans, LA

Dear Alex, Raul, Donna, and Karen,
Thank you all so much for all the great things that you did for us while we stayed in Steamboat. You went out of your ways to make sure that we were having a good time. Thanks again for the great food that you cooked for us. It was very original and delicious- not just regular old food. I especially liked how you made us sandwiches and drinks and snacks whether we would need them or not. The tuna and filet mignon were both excellent! I thought that it was great that you did everything from talking to us to loading up our skis to driving us everywhere. I am glad to know that you all liked us so much that you got a piñata to make our night very joyful. With your help, this trip was able to become very memorable for all of us! I hope to come back to Steamboat to see you all sometime.
Sincerely,
Jack

Dear Raul, Alex, Karen, and Donna,
Thank you so much for helping us with our skis, driving us everywhere, and cooking the extremely delicious food. I haven’t ever seen or tasted any thing as good as Chef Karen’s great meals! You worked so hard to make sure we were having an amazing time!! The desserts were great, and the Piñata was awesome!!! Even though one family wasn’t there, you all still made the rest of our trip so fun!!!!

I have been to Colorado 10 (yes, I’m not kidding!!!!!) times, and I think this was the very best!!!!!! I know everybody wants to come back next year to see you and outstanding hospitality!!!!!!
Sincerely,
Nick

Dear Alex,
On their own accord, the boys wanted to write you all and thank you.  I ditto everything they said above.  And, I want to add that you are all so fun!  It felt like you were part of our family.  
Thank you,
Jodi Malanga

Moving Mountains Chalets provides an unparalleled experience in luxury skiing. I have been unsuccessful trying to find their level of homes and services in Vail, Deer Valley, or Aspen.

We were a party of 10 (two couples and 6 kids). The home we stayed in was spectacular. But what made the experience over the top were Elisabeth, Robin and their staff. We took advantage of the Full Service Catered Package which I highly recommend. It is actually is quite reasonable when you do the math.

The two gentlemen who took care of us went above and beyond in every little detail. The meals were fantastic, the presentation was that of a fine restaurant, not that of a home cooked meal. The two times we tried the “better” restaurants in town, we were sorry we had not eaten back at the house. They would cook anything and everything that we, or the kids, could desire

The house was always clean in spite of the six monsters we had running around. They drove us everywhere and anywhere regardless of the time of day, and fulfilled any and all of the stupid request the kids could come up with - they were beyond amazing!

Comments from vacation rental guests

Moving Mountains was great.  We loved the awesome ski shuttle drivers.  They were friendly and prompt.  Check-in staff and reservations staff were excellent too. Our overall experience was excellent.  I can’t think of one thing to improve.  Even the snow was great last week!

- The Niemcuzra Family, Indianapolis, IN

We had Lulu for daily breakfast and 4 dinners. She is an excellent chef. We had great meals. She was so wonderful to all of us, had a great attitude, a smile on her face every morning and so accommodating in every way! She even brought up chicken noodle soup when my son was sick. We all could not say enough positive things about Lulu!! We all wanted to bring her home...

- The Izlar Family, Atlanta, GA


Everything about the house was perfect. All the Moving Mountains staff we came in contact with were extremely helpful and polite. Could not have asked for a better trip!

- The Eade Family, Atlanta, GA


The house was incredible. It was very clean and organized. I also liked the fact that there was a mid week cleaning. My main point of contact from Moving Mountains was Alex Pallut. She was very, very, helpful with all of our needs and wants. She help set up everything from transportation, to lift tickets, to lessons, to powdercat snowboarding. The complimentary shuttle was also a big plus. It was awesome that the shuttle could take us to the gondola, and even the market. It was GREAT!!! We are definitely coming back to stay again. Everything exceeded my and our whole group’s expectations. Thank you very much!

- The Wagatsuma Family and friends, Honolulu, Hawaii

I should have trusted MM more, since we ended up using lots of services (group rates, rentals, shuttles). I guess the nature of being an event planner is that you think you should be doing everything yourself. Thanks so much for all of your assistance. Moving Mountains was the best rental/management company that I have worked with, bar none.

- The Sherman Group, Lake Forest, CA

Your agency is very easy to communicate and work with. Thank you for promptly returning emails and working to make our week less hassle with all the lift tickets pre-purchased, and for the booking incentive you offered.

- The Kline Family, Stevens, PA

I have been to Steamboat 3 times and this was by far the best.  I will recommend MM to everyone. We rent houses quite often for family vacations and your service has been far and away the best we have experienced. We also own a vacation home in La Jolla, Ca. and I just wish our management company was as well organized, knowledgeable and helpful as yours. Alex and Elisabeth were very helpful in helping us organize this trip and worked with us to find the perfect house.

- The Magadini Family, Dallas, TX

I found Moving Mountains' services absolutely perfect, and being a perfectionist myself, I don't hand out that compliment easily. Everyone, especially Alex, went above and beyond. It was, without a doubt, the best experience we've ever had with a vacation rental.

- The Twibell Family, Scottsdale, AZ  

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the special attention we received from everyone at MM. From the meals to the extra help getting a rental car we felt well taken care of. I can honestly say that we have never had a property management group that cared the way that MM does. Everyone at MM is very attentive and friendly. We cannot think of one single thing that we would ask you to change about your services.

- The Sellars Family, Houston, TX

Everything was delicious and I was very glad to have this option so that I could stay out of the grocery stores and kitchen and truly relax. We were especially grateful for the wonderful meals delivered for Christmas Eve and day.

- The Sellers, about the Go Gourmet delivery service

I wanted you to know that we all truly enjoyed our stay.   The chalet was really nice and very spacious for our entire family, the view beautiful and the services you provide fantastic.    We felt a bit pampered.   Whatever we needed, you all were very accommodating.  Our family agreed that it would be a perfect place to come back to.  

- The Brown Family, Walford, IA

We stayed in both the black and brown chalets with a very large group.  From beginning to end the staff was accommodating to our needs and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.  Both chalets were beautiful and were perfect for a big group of people.  The shuttle service was excellent and made it easy for us as a group to go to the mountain or even around town.  Overall this was the best vacation rental experience I have ever had.  I will stay there again next time I am in Steamboat.

- The D'Hondt Group, Denver, CO

Alex, I cannot thank you enough for your help with our trip.  I am usually designated as the travel agent on all of our trips and I have never had a more friendly contact person.  We all loved the Creekside Chalet and it will be hard to move to another next year.  If you have any ideas about another Chalet that we may like better, please let me know.  Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.

- The Boyle Family, San Antonio, TX

We had a Superbowl Party and the Food we ordered from Go Gourmet was excellent. The Buffalo Chili was the biggest hit!

- The Pritchard Family, Rumson, NJ

Can we get bigger bag of cookies at the house - they were awesome! Lulu did a great job for us. Very nice, the food was excellent, it was a fun and relaxing night for us.

- The Marcus Group, Libertyville, IL

Mountain High Chalet was fabulous and the bus service and the food delivery to the house made the holiday.

- The Madden Family, Athy, Kildare, Ireland

The shuttle service was excellent, Alex and Jim were very helpful and available.

- The Rutledge Family, Pacific Palisades, CA

Our shuttle Driver, Mark, was very timely, efficient and friendly, and much appreciated by the group.

- The Tonkin Group, Seattle, WA
