Ski in/Ski Out 50 Feet to the Silver Queen Lift

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

You just CAN'T GET ACCOMMODATIONS ANY CLOSER to the Silver Queen and Red Lady lifts than the Axtel Building. If you want a true SKI-IN SKI-OUT for your next ski trip, THIS IS IT !!

Just SKI IN for a quick lunch or break and you're right back on the slopes, or take advantage of the many mountain village and slope side restaurants. Ski school is right next door at the Whetstone building.

Relax after a exhilarating day of slope side fun cozying up to one of the two fireplaces (the wood is stacked on the balconies) or catch the free town shuttle (right at the Axtel parking lot entrance) for an evening in Historic Crested Butte. Sit on the balcony and watch as the skiers and snowboarders come down the beautiful snow covered terrain or read a book, people watch or soak in the atmosphere at one of the best Resorts in Colorado.

If you get the chance to come out here in the summer the weather, wild flowers, sightseeing, mountain views, mountain biking, and hiking are incredible.

If you fly in to Gunnision (GUC) Airport it's only 31 miles to the Resort at Mt Crested Butte. It's a beautiful scenic ride through parts of the Gunnison Valley. There are not any passes to go through as CO-135 N goes from Gunnison to Crested Butte and Mt Crested Butte.

About Carl or Judie

Carl and Judie Fielder. We live in Florida most of the year, and always look forward to seeing Crested Butte in both Winter and Summer. We certainly hope you get the opportunity to visit this awesome community.

Carl or Judie purchased this condo in 1999

Why Carl or Judie chose Crested Butte Area

We fell in love with Crested Butte on our first visit in 1998. We found our unit in the Axtel building in 1999. The location and accessibility to the mountain are important to us. Being only a short walk (50 feet to 75 feet)to the Silver Queen and Red Lady lifts and close proximity to the town are terrific.

What makes this condo unique

There are two balconies in our unit that look out to the base area. One from the bedroom and one from the living room area. In the Winter you can sit and watch the activity around the base area such as skiers and snow boarders approaching the lift areas or coming down the slopes to the Red Lady lift. In the summer you can take the lifts for hiking or biking. Many enjoy taking the biking trip to Aspen. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance or you have a full kitchen to enjoy home cooking. You can ski in for lunch. If you decide to go into town there is a free bus shuttle that will pick you up at the Axtel and Whetstone parking lot. Or you can curl up in front of either of our two fireplaces. The historic town of Crested Butte is a short 3 miles from Mt. Crested Butte for more shopping and fine restaurants.

Our place has two full bathrooms, two balconies, and two fireplaces. There is a coin operated washer and dryer in the building. Our condo is one of the units in this building that has a FRONT entrance to the slopes and a BACK entrance to the parking lot. This is a great convenience. You really don't need a rental car as the bus shuttle service is great. There is a free town bus shuttle that picks up at the Axtel/Whetstone parking lot every 15 minutes in ski season (30 minutes during off season)for a short ride (approximately 3 miles)into town if you decide to see historic Crested Butte. If you fly into Gunnison Airport (GUC)there is a shuttle service from the airport to the resort (31 miles).

Excellent location and beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Loved this condo! Having skied each year at CB and renting different condos, I feel this one was the best for the size of our group this year. Small but perfect for a family of 4. Probably the best location on the mountain. You can literally ski to the steps leading to your door, right next to Silver Queen Lift, walk up 2 small flights of stairs, and you are inside the condo. The unit was nicely furnished and the new owner (Julia) was quite friendly and responsive. We already want to reserve it for next year if we have a small group again.

Best location

  • 4 of 5

Best location I've had in CB. Nice size condo for myself and two 11 year olds. Snowed 35-40" while we were there so we never went to town in evenings. Just took a short 2 minute walk to the Avalanche for dinner each evening.

Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is absolutely perfect! It is right in front of the two main lifts and between the ski school and the ski shop. It was perfect for our ski vacation since we have small kids because we didn't have to lug their gear very far. It is even right above a restaurant where you can eat outside, not to mention there are several other restaurants within easy walking distance for lunch or dinner. The condo itself was awesome with lots of storage for all our gear and privacy from our kids who slept on the sofa bed. The hot tub access was wonderful after a long day of skiing and there was never anyone else in it. We love Crested Butte now and will definitely return to this property.

Amazing Ski-in/out

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great Christmas. This place was the best present I could have asked for. My son and I had the best time. It snowed on Christmas day and the sking is right out the front door. You can ask for better. The 2 fire places are a huge bonus. Being right in the middle of all the action was great.

Thanks again for renting us your amazing place. Look forward to coming back.

Great room in the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for our family ski trip. Back door to parking lot and front door slope access was a great advantage, especially for Louisiana people who have trouble with the temps and the thin air!

Amazing condo! Our experience was the best!

  • 5 of 5

Snow, snow & more snow! Our group of 3 had a terrific time during our stay. The location, the condo & overall experience made this trip well worth the 14 hour drive from Texas. The slopes were within steps of the back door & the convenience made it easy to return for lunch or a rest in the afternoon. The condo was extremely clean, well equipped and offered very comfortable beds, a relaxing atmosphere, and a good kitchen. I would highly recommend this condo, as it was greatly suited for a terrific stay in Mt. Crested Butte!
