Consider joining us for a relaxing summer in the cool, clean, mountain air north of Durango at Purgatory. In addition to the activities available at the resort walking distance from the condo for you and your family and guests, we have an array of activities area-wide.
The condo is stocked with some basic fishing gear and we would be happy to give you insider tips on some of the best fishing spots. Adults will need to have a Colorado fishing stamp. There are also plenty of hiking trails for a variety of athletic levels and bike trails from the door of the condo. Or, you can do....NOTHING! Enjoy the deck overlooking the San Juan Mountain range and the West Needles mountains, have a BBQ and just enjoy the quiet.
You and your whole family are going to LOVE being right here at Durango Mountain Resort! The chair lift and summer fun activities are less than a three-minute walk/ski. Edelweiss #17, a premier ski-in-ski-out exclusive condominium complex, is located at the base of Lower Hades with easy access to the ski slope on skis!
Summer activities include a climbing wall, tramp, zip line, Alpine Slide, mountain bike uplifts, scenic chair ride, disc golf, fishing. July and August will host the classical music festival Music in the Mountains, which can be heard from the front porch of the condo! And we are 'old school!' We offer spotless clean, sanitized good-ol'-fashioned bath tubs for a relaxing soak after a long day of playing in the clean mountain air. We offer luxurious bath amenities from local herbalists. Did you really want to get in the hot tub or pool with 'that guy' or all those kids? There is also a natural hot springs 15 miles south in Hermosa Valley that we highly recommend.
Our elevation is 8,900 ft. Alpine lakes, mountain hikes, snow shoeing abound in the immediate vicinity. It's a wonderful year-round family retreat. Ask about escorted activities and private ski lessons.
Edelweiss #17 has four bedrooms and four full baths. Ten people can sleep very comfortably here - no sofa beds! - and it has a pack and play crib. Each bedroom has its own cable TV and bathroom with heated floors. There is a beautiful, cozy brick wood-burning fireplace with a hearth and extreamly comfortable over-stuffed leather sofa and chair.
Edelweiss is located on Sheol Street at Purgatory Ski Resort / Durango Mountain Resort. The condo is 25 steps from the ski slope. There are excellent mountain views from the dining room and living room windows. A full size laundry room is available so you don't have to pack too much.
The townhome is located about a one hour drive from Durango's La Plata Airport and about 25 minutes from Downtown Durango and is a super short walk to the main base lodge. In the summertime, the resort hosts the MUSIC IN THE MOUNTAINS, which is a wonderful huge white tent filled with world class musicians playing beautiful music in the evening.
The wonderful people of Durango are so friendly. No wonder why people end up making Durango their permanent home!
The Silverton narrow gauge train is a very scenic steam engine ride that kids will enjoy. River rafting in the summer is also a fun family activity. Silverton is 20 miles north over two breathtaking mountain passes. Google Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
This home has one of the best locations on the mountain and is beautifully furnished. We kindly invite you to come and fall in love with Durango and relax in this comfortable little hide-away in the mountains! This 4 bedroom town home awaits your arrival and PLEASE DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!

Beautiful Condo, Great Location
Beautiful Condo, Great Location
This is a beautiful condo and right in the heart of Purgatory, so easy to walk to all of its amenities. Perfect for a large family wanting to stay together, but not be on top of each other. The kitchen and living room and one bedroom and bathroom are on the main level, so easy for seniors, while younger people can have the whole upstairs and downstairs. The only thing I saw that needed updating were the beds. They have been well-used, but were relatively comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and the surroundings are gorgeous for hiking, etc. Highly recommend the Alpine Slide at Purgatory. We had a blast just riding up the chairlift and sliding down on the Alpine Slide.

We had a great time in the condominium. It was very well appointed with plenty of room for our party of six. Carrie, the site manager, was great to work with and extremely helpful. We would definitely consider this for a future stay. If we had any complaints, new mattresses on a few of the beds might be worthwhile as well as possibly a new dishwasher, as the dishes seemed to come out a bit spotty. The beds were just a little soft for our tastes (others might appreciate them), and the dishwasher issue might be because of hard water. Otherwise, the condo is lovely and the location is ideal.

The ski-in, ski-out feature is a MUST when skiing there!
The ski-in, ski-out feature is a MUST when skiing there!
Fabulous place for our two families!! We took over 2 bedrooms each and had plenty of room for everyone!! My favorite feature--the giant kitchen table with enough room for 10--plus the sitting couch behind the table where all the kids can pile up. It is a fabulously updated place: beautiful kitchen, floors, etc. And I love the living room fireplace and high ceilings!!! Thanks for the great family vacation!!!!

My family and I come to Durango Mountain Resort every year for a family ski vacation. I am from Durango so I like to bring my kids back to experience this beautiful area. We loved this rental! It was so well-stocked and clean. The ski storage closet was awesome and the heated floors in the bathroom were so nice. The kitchen was lovely and had a lot of storage room. The lighting was nice and we all loved to lounge on the bench in the kitchen. We will definitely come back to this awesome place. You can also ski out from about 20 feet from the door. Amazing place!

I was actually snowed out of my house across the highway so stayed here at Edelweiss until I could get back into my place. It was great. I realized how convienent it is to be right on the ski slope with regular snow plowing and a carport for my vehicle. I holed up in the condo for a week waiting for my other place to get dug out! The kitchen is great and fully stocked. The beds were very comfortable. The linens are premium. I highly recommend this condo to any seniors still skiing. I'm 78. And, people with little kids for that matter. Makes everything so much easier.

I've been coming up here for years! We love this place. We can ski right to the condo and the views of the Needles are amazing. The condo has a nice, warm, cozy and slightly rustic ambiance about it. The kids loved it too. Very kid-friendly. I spend my birthday here every year, sit by the fire after a full day of skiing. It's the best. I highly recommend this property. The money we save driving up from town and going out to eat everynight is great. We ski and stay in. We love it.
