JVT condo description

JVT is a group of nine, connected, two-story houses built of cedar and brick, of which ours is the largest. It is located on the mountain and it is a shorter walk (about 100 yards) to our ski-in/out point than the walk from any public parking to the gondola; check out the comparison in photo 21. We employ a local concierge service to assist our guests and to deal immediately with any problems. We accept all major credit cards.

Our unit is a two-story, end-unit with three bedrooms with queen beds, including a loft bedroom with a folding wall for privacy. On three sides of the living room, two-story, floor-to-ceiling windows rise to a beamed, cathedral ceiling. There is a glass-front, wood-burning stove in the fireplace, a full kitchen with tile floor and counter tops, and upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, one with a tub and powder room, and one with a shower stall. A spiral staircase beside the 'wet room' entrance foyer leads up to the second floor. The entrance foyer has a rack for your skis.

The ambience is spacious, bright and comfortable. The furniture is upholstery and oak. There is HDTV with cable, a DVD player, a stereo Ipod docking station and free wireless internet. The three bedrooms with queen beds and a sofa bed in the living room make it ideal for one or two couples with kids or three couples. It can sleep six comfortably, or eight using the sofa bed.

The nine homes of JVT are occupied by full-time resident owners, with a few such as ours being rented when we are not in residence. We have owned it since 1975 and plan to retire there one day.

It was one of the first dwellings on this part of the mountain, and was originally ski-in, ski-out from the front door. Construction of roads and buildings on the land we used to ski now requires a walk of about three minutes down the road to a ski-in, ski-out point.

Steamboat is one of the finest all-round ski areas in the US, with terrain for all abilities and wonderful for families. Excellent tree and powder skiing and large areas for intermediates and beginners. Come and enjoy it!

              Although famous as a ski resort, Steamboat has a full complement of year-round activities, including golf, water sports on the Yampa River and Steamboat Lake, fishing and hunting and mountain biking.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1975

              About the owner: Ernie and Jamie Kent live in Maryland but plan to retire to Steamboat one day. At present they run a family website development business. Between them they have six children.

              Why the Owner Chose JVT:
              Ernie discovered Steamboat while attending a conference in 1974, and fell in love with the ski mountain. The next year he began looking for a place to buy at Steamboat and discovered JVT. Over the years JVT and Steamboat have become home while his 'real' location moved around the country.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              JVT is a three minute walk to the second gondola tower where we ski down to the gondola, and where we ski back at the end of the day to walk 3 minutes back to the condo. This spot is accessible to all levels from the beginner's slope. It's actually a shorter walk to our ski-in/out point than the walk from any public parking to the gondola - check the comparison in photo 21. It's also a short walk from JVT to the end of our road where a free bus stops every 20 minutes. JVT has free off-street parking, and Longthong Road is heated concrete for safe, easy access in all weather.
