We purchased the penthouse condo literally sight-unseen based on a friend’s recommendation and we were glad we did. Located within Storm Meadows at Christie Base, the location is premier with true ski-in/out access. In the mornings our snow conditions report is out the back door. We ski/board down to the Christie Lift. At lunch we come back to the condo and eat in the dining area overlooking the slopes. At the end of the day (we let the kids do the night skiing), a soak in the hot tub, a few minutes in the sauna then off to Ski Time Square for dinner and drinks, just 200 yards from the condo. When we head into downtown Steamboat Springs, we enjoy the free in-town shuttle from the Ski Time Square stop.
We designed the interior to be impressive yet comfortable. When guests arrive there is a “wow” factor. From the slate entry to the expansive slope views (with the base area below us) to the designer furnishings and double-height ceilings. The first level of our home is the entertaining/living level with a living room dominated by a 20+ feet high moss-rock gas fireplace with built-in blower, a 42” flat-screen (can be seen from the slopes) and a sofa (does NOT open to a bed, we wanted comfort) and chairs you just want to plunge into.
The dining area seats 8 at bistro height to allow viewing of the television and DVD’s when not listening to the stereo. The kitchen is expansive is fully equipped (new countertops to be installed Spg 2014) and there is a full bathroom on this level as well.
The living room opens to a balcony with beautiful views from the morning sun on the slopes to the twinkling lights of the valley floor. While daytime is impressive, our designer installed pin-point halogens and designer lighting throughout to truly enhance the evenings. Do not be surprised to see skiers and boarders looking up at the unit from the slopes, it’s that impressive at dusk and into the evening.
Upstairs (our designer replaced the spiral staircase with straight stairs) are three(3) large bedrooms. The master bedroom offers a queen bed, designer bedding, built-in lighting, a large television and a ceiling fan with expansive glass facing west over the living area onto the slopes. The second bedroom is a Jr. Master with a modern queen bed, designer bedding, flat-screen television and built-in halogen wall sconce lights. The third bedroom which we consider a “family suite” offers two individual twin beds with designer bedding, a fold-out full sleeper and a flat-screen TV, perfect for children or adults as the room lays out as a suite. On this level, there is a full bathroom and a ¼ bath as well.
Wireless internet is provided throughout the condo and all rooms have individual thermostats.
Our unit is annually shown to Central Reservations of Steamboat Springs as an example of an “A” rated unit. While we spend months renovating the interior from solid pine doors and designer carpeting, we must admit, the amenities and location are just as impressive.
As a hospitality consultant knowing what clients desire concerning ease, we offer condo check-in by our local on-site who is one of the finest concierge' in Steamboat. Once you arrive at our building and park, guests take the elevator to the top floor as our condo is the top two-levels of the building, no noisy neighbors above.
Amenities in the building include a sauna and changing room as well as an individual “ski-locker” which is just steps away from the access to the slopes (there is also a ski rack by the door if you wish to pop in for lunch or apres ski and then back out for night skiing). Adjacent to the building is a new outdoor hot tub locked and only accessible to guests insuring privacy.
As mentioned we start the day by skiing out of the building to the base area and jump on the lift. Midday we usually drift back to the condo for lunch (even though Ragnar’s on the mountain should not be missed). In the evenings (assuming we are not night skiing), we use the same ski-slope door to access Ski Time Square, the base area of Mt. Werner. For casual we suggest the any options in Ski Time Square and the Torian Plum Arcade. Heading to downtown Steamboat? Leave the car in the lot. About 200 yards from the back-door is a stop (Ski Time Sq) for the free in-town shuttle.
For us the condo is not an investment, it is a lifestyle. We designed the condo for guests to truly feel comfortable and to enjoy a carefree vacation at one of the finest ski resorts in the world. Our on-site manager/concierge company provides guests access 24/7. For guests we provide the full vacation package as free time is so valuable, why waste it on inferior lodging and location.

We are located adjacent to the R-O-W run, above above Ski Time Square and The Christie Club. We chose the location as we desired true-ski-in/out access yet also the ability to walk to Ski Time Square for apres-ski (OK, I admit I also walk to Daz Bog for my morning coffee, not to worry we have a coffee maker in the unit, I just like to support the local economy).
While Steamboat is known as one of the finest ski resorts in the country, as part-time locals we know there is so much more to the area beyond our ski hill. Apres-ski at the base area is a blast. We purchased the condo so we could walk to the base area at the end of the day. While we miss The Tugboat and Butcher Shop we have been enjoying Café Diva for a special dinner and Paramount for casual dining and cocktails.
During the winter months we love the on-mountain dinner options, best to walk to the gondola from our unit, it is about a 5 minute walk) yet new for 2013/14 night skiing outside our door at The Christie Lift
We use the Ski Time Square bus stop for access to downtown via free in-town bus.
The town of Steamboat Springs is an actual working town and county seat about 2-3 miles away from the base area. Lincoln Avenue, the main street offers visitors a quaint view of the Rocky Mountain West intermixed with locally owned shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and a striking example of art-deco design of our county building.
FM Light & Sons is a must visit for authentic western wear at local prices. Howelson Hill is great for tubbing. Heading into downtown, the natural hot springs are open to the public offering day admission passes/
Strawberry Park is our most well-known hot springs, about 8 miles from our condo. Due to the roads, in winter we strongly suggest taking one of the shuttle services. During the daylight hours it is a festive family atmosphere. After dark the springs are clothing optional. However not to worry, between the darkness and steam rising from the springs, even the most modest will be comfortable.
Be sure to take some time and explore the Town of Steamboat. It is charming and authentic which is rare in most resorts. Locals are friendly, most establishments are family-oriented and overall safe and inviting. We guarantee your first visit will not be your last.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: As a travel & Hospitality consultant and 20+ year resident of Colorado I understand what guests desire in a vacation rental. Since acquiring the condo a few years back my mission has been to make the condo and vacation experience as enjoyable for guests as it is for my family. A true escape from the pressures of home to a retreat in the mountains of Colorado.
Why the Owner Chose Storm Meadows Condos:
We have vacationed throughout Colorado and reside in Denver. We chose Steamboat due to its diversity of ski terrain, the charm of a true historic mountain town and lack of crowds, even during high-season. The icing on the cake was the ability to purchase a ski-in/out condo while also being able to walk to restaurants and nightlife at Ski Time Square. When we are on vacation, we do not wish to drive or shuttle, we want convenience and easy access to all the amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When we bought the condo our singular reason was the amenity of the ski-in/out location. There is a rare luxury of being able to walk out the back door in ski boots, snap on our skis and ski down to the lift. In the evenings we suggest a dip in the hot-tub, the views are amazing. For the pulled muscles, the sauna in our building is heaven. Beyond the condo be sure to enjoy the amenities in and around the area from natural hot springs to gourmet dining to affordable family activities. We are so happy with our condo and we know you will be too.
