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 gondola, and at lunch we come back to the condo and eat while 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.
Coming inside you feel right at home as 20 foot ceiling makes the condo feel open and spacious while the mossy rock fireplace keeps it warm and cozy. The first level of our home is the entertaining/living level with the kitchen open to the living and dining areas and includes a 42” flat-screen and a sofa (does NOT open to a bed, we wanted comfort) and chairs you just want to plunge into.
The dining area seats up to 8 at bistro height to allow viewing of the television and DVD’s when not listening to the stereo. The kitchen is fully equipped and we invite you to use what is there but replace what is empty. There is also a couple closets for wet gear and a full bathroom just off the entryway.
The living room opens to a balcony with beautiful views from the morning sun on the slopes to the expansive yampa valley with the flattop mountains in the distance. You can watch the jumps and mogul courses above, enjoy the squeals and laughter of skiers and mountain coaster riders out front, and have the Christmas lights and charm of the base area just below.
Upstairs (we replaced the spiral staircase with straight stairs) are three(3) large bedrooms. The master bedroom offers a queen bed, built-in lighting, a large television and a ceiling fan with a huge glass window facing west over the living area onto the slopes. The second bedroom is a Jr. Master with a modern queen bed, flat-screen television and built-in halogen wall sconce lights. The third bedroom which we consider a “family suite” offers two individual twin beds, a futon, and a flat-screen TV, perfect for the kids. On this level, there is a full bathroom and an additional vanity and area for the girls to get ready.
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 the condo boasts many updates, we must admit, the amenities and location are most impressive.
We know what clients desire concerning ease, we offer condo check-in by our local on-site concierge', one of the finest 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 perhaps the best dinner in town we recommend Cafe Diva just a short walk away. 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 and it runs late into the night.
For us the condo is not an investment, it is a lifestyle. We offer 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.
