Why Stuart West chose Mount Crested Butte
Crested Butte is an incredible town with so much to offer! We have loved taking our girls fishing, skiing, hiking and just walking around the quaint downtown area. Crested Butte was recently voted 'Best Ski Town in North America' by Powder Magazine, and for good reason. Incredibly diverse terrain coupled with generally very low on-mountain traffic make Crested Butte ideal for anyone from families to extreme skiers. Catch the Mountain Express Shuttle every 15 minutes to ride down to the historic town of Crested Butte. This former mining town has become a beacon for tasty cuisine, outstanding clothing, and souvenir shopping. It's laid back atmosphere eclectic make this town a one of a kind jewel in the Rockies.
What makes this Condo unique
Ski-in, ski-out. We often ski in for lunch as a family and can avoid some of the long lines at the warming houses. Great view from the condo. We have spent many a 4th of July with front row seats to fire works display from our condo balcony!

Could not ask for anything better
We stayed at the West's Columbine condo during Spring Break of March 2018. It was perfect for what we needed as a family of 7 (kids ages 14, 14, 11, 9 and 8). It was clean, comfortable, well stocked (kitchen, fireplace, etc.) and perfectly located. The ski in ski out of this condo cannot be understated as you can drop in for a quick lunch on your way to the base then quickly ski right back out down to Red Lady or Silver Queen. On top of the that the hot tub and grill are right around the corner and the place is impeccably clean. The West's are extremely responsive and the property manager even helped me teach my boys some technique before they hit ski school! You will not regret renting this condo.
Wonderful place to visit for a skiing holiday!
We loved the condo and our time in Crested Butte. Everything was comfortable, clean, and inviting. We especially loved the view of the ski base and the ability to ski in and out during the day. Great condo. Thank you for letting us stay there!
Practically Perfect Ski-in and out Condo at Crested Butte
I rented this condo for a family ski vacation on the basis of the location and glowing reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The view from the living room was lovely and it was very easy to ski down to the lifts and back to the condo. I think this is the first ski vacation where we only had one powder house stop (for hot chocolate) - we ate almost all our meals in the condo as it was so convenient. The owner provided really good recommendations and the one call I made to maintenance was promptly answered and the minor request taken care of. I would recommend anyone staying more than a few days do their grocery shopping in Gunnison (as I did) as the store in Crested Butte was a little limited in selection.
What a great place. Beautiful views and wonderful accommodations. The home is so well equipped with plenty of room. We had a wonderful time.
Spectacular views, convenient ski-in, ski-out location
My family of 5 stayed at this condo from 12/28/15 to 1/2/16. We had a wonderful time. The condo has plenty of bed space with 2 bedrooms and a loft. It is conveniently located above the base of the ski area. We could ski down to the lifts in the morning and return for lunch everyday. The views from every window are absolutely gorgeous! The owners were very helpful and gave suggestions on restaurants and shops. Added, there is a shuttle that comes directly to the condo every hour and transports to the base of the mountain. My daughter and I took the shuttle to the base one day, then we easily hopped on the town shuttle for a day of shopping. There was so much snow, so I was very happy that I didn't have to drive at all. Added, the town of Crested Butte is adorable. Everyone is so friendly! I can honestly say that this was absolutely the best vacation my family has ever had. I highly recommend this condo and a trip to Crested Butte. The skiing was a blast!!! We will definitely be back. :-)
Nice ski-in, ski-out location
We stayed here 20-23 December 2015 and had a great time. Property was just as described in the VRBO listing. The condo is located slightly above the base area, making it easy to ski down to the lifts in the morning and straight back to the condo at the end of the day. It's easy enough that we came back to the condo for our lunches too.
Three bedrooms and lots of beds give many options for sleeping many people. The kitchen and living room are conducive to gathering together as you prepare meals, and the view of the base area and surrounding mountains is spectacular. The condo complex has a nice outdoor hot tub and picnic area conveniently located for this condo. Maintenance staff was very helpful and came over with a snow blower to help us get our car dug out after a 16 inch snowfall.
The only drawback is that it looks like it would be a difficult walk to and from the base area in the snow. We solved that problem by driving to the base area for dinner at Django's, then found that our waiter lives in the same complex and walks to and from work so maybe it is not as bad as we thought.
Overall, this a comfortable, convenient condo.
