**************************** PROCEEDS TO NONPROFITS ****************************

'Waldhaus' is a fabulous single family home, right next to the base of Peak 8, at a premier location for skiing in the winter (SKI-IN) and biking/hiking in the summer. The large window in the vaulted living room provides a beautiful view of the majestic mountain range.

Two separate living areas with fireplaces and flat-screen TVs with VCR/DVD/Blu-ray and CD player allow the extended family to comfortably spread out. High-speed wireless internet and a large selection of TV channels keep you connected.
And a brand new 2015 hot tub makes for wonderful spa feeling after an active day.

Enjoy direct access to the slopes of Peak 8 and most marvelous trails of the area. In the winter Peak 8 is the first area to get loads of snow, ski-in is quasi guaranteed at all times!

Relax in the very private brand new 2015 luxury hot tub after a fun day on the slopes, biking or hiking.

An extensive network of mountain bike and hiking trails starts directly behind the house. The base of Peak 8 hosts the “Fun Park”, which provides summer mountain fun for the whole family: Gold Runner Coaster, Alpine Superslide, Gemstone Panning, Mineshaft Maze, Rockpile Climbing Wall, Superbungee Trampoline, Bounce House, as well as: Breck 4x4 Tours, Brecktreks Guided Hiking Tours, Mountain Biking, Superputt Mini Golf, Free Scenic Gondola Rides, and Scenic Chairlift Rides up into the mountain!
New: the “Tenmile Flyer Zipline” is departing at Peak 8 as well. You can reach speeds of up to 45 mph while sailing 50 feet high up in the air!
The chalet sits on an oversized and beautifully wooded lot - for kids to roam around & build tree houses. Private patio with adirondack chairs and brand new 2015 hot tub! And the popular Peak 8 Fun Park is right next door!

Ski-in from Trygves Run and get out to the slopes with a short walk via the property lot and 4-O'Clock Run Rd, or down the road to the base of Peak 8. The base of Peak 8 is the true hub of the mountain for skiers and non-skiers alike, housing 'One Ski Hill Place' with dining, bar, grill, live-music, and a huge heated patio open year-round looking at the mountain. All this less than 300 yards from the house.
If downhill is not for you, the Nordic center is a short walk away.

Town is less than a mile away and is connected via the Gondola, the free bus system that stops at the base of Peak 8, hiking trails and the road. Shopping (groceries, liquor store, etc.) are located a short walk from the Gondola. Ride the Gondola 'down'-town to get your groceries if you like!

Absolutely No Smoking and No Pets.

Rates are excluding Colorado / Summit County sales tax. There is no Breckenridge resort tax for this property.

Car: Not Necessary

The base of Peak 8 is the first and last area to see snow and open their lifts. The house is 300 yards from the slopes, ski-in conditions permitting. Peak 8 is also where the action is in the summer. Take the gondola 'down'-town to shop for groceries.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family of six living and working in Boulder. This chalet is managed by us and professionally run.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Peak 8 is Breckenridge's first ski development and gets snow first and keeps it the longest - allowing to ski-in the entire season. Whether you ski, hike or bike, you want to live right where the action is, not touch the car, and not haul any equipment. Hike and bike trails right behind the house make the chalet in summer a gem right in the beautiful nature and tranquil wilderness of the National Forest while being so close to everything. The convenience of downtown Breckenridge is just a Gondola ride away.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
'Waldhaus' is extremely secluded right in the National Forest, offering a private hot-tub under the stars, yet a stone-throw away from the slopes, Vail Resort's #1 hotel in Breckenridge, the Gondola, and downtown. Ski-in, bike or hike from the hustle and bustle of the resort into total privacy and silence.
