Ski-in chalet next to the slopes with 5 BRs, 2 wood burning fireplaces, hot tub
Waldhaus is a fabulous mountain chalet, 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.
Direct access to slopes, chairlifts, and the most marvelous trails of the area. Oversized wooded lot, private patio, hot tub.
Ski-in from 'Trygves Run' and get out to the slopes with a short walk via the lot and 4-O'Clock Run Rd. Peak 8 is the true hub of the Breckenridge Ski Resort - all major chairlifts connect from and to here. It is the first peak to get loads of snow, and the last one to close at the end of the season, ski-in is quasi guaranteed at all times - seriously! Ski school, rentals, tickets, bar, dining - everything right there.
The house is a stone's throw away from all this and the chairlifts, and a gondola ride away from downtown. Warm up at two fireplaces & soak in the large hot tub under the stars after a long day on the slopes. It doesn't get any better! If downhill is not for you, the beautiful and brand new Nordic Center is a short walk away. Make memories with your family and friends, play boardgames, watch TV/play video-games, cook your favorite meals in a fully stacked kitchen, read a book on one of the many comfortable sofas or armchairs.
An extensive network of mountain bike and hiking trails starts directly behind the house. An oversized and beautifully wooded lot is paradise for kids to roam around & build tree houses. Stretch out in Adirondack chairs on the patio or in the shade under the trees. Relax in the very private hot tub after a fun day biking or hiking, counting shooting stars! 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, amongst others, as well as: Breck 4x4 Tours, Brecktreks Guided Hiking Tours, Mountain Biking, Superputt Mini Golf, Scenic Gondola Rides, and Scenic Chairlift Rides way up into the mountain! The new “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!
TOWN is about 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. You could ride the Gondola 'down'-town to get your groceries!
Absolutely NO PETS allowed on property - thank you!

We are a family of six living and working in Boulder. This chalet is managed by us and professionally run.
Owner purchased this Chalet in 2012
Why Owner chose Breckenridge
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.
What makes this Chalet unique
'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.

Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
The house is at a great location. You can literally ski off the run into the backyard jacuzzi area. We had a great time at the cabin but it definitely needs updating. The dishwasher was falling off the wall and the owner had to come by twice to fix the electronic door lock and fuse box. I would recommend this house if you are a party of 8-9 but not 13. It was a little crammed for all us . Overall it was a nice place
Large comfortable house near the slopes
The large common room and multiple living spaces make this a great house for large groups. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking with enough plates, glasses etc for a crowd. Decor is comfortable and attractive.
great house for a large group
Great space for our group of 7 adults and 4 kids. Nice hot tub in the private backyard and close to the slopes!
Great house. Easy to ski into. Will definitely return.
Guy's ski trip
This house was advertised well and completely met our expectations. We had 8 guys who came up for skiing. The house was incredibly spacious and clean. We were 5 min walk to the Peak 8 base and a couple mins from skiing right in. Everything worked well and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Choose this house of you are looking for a house outside of downtown and close to the slopes.
Great Location Very Close To The Slopes Home Could Use Improvements
You can't get any closer to the slopes in this home! The home could use some repairs and updates especially in the kitchen area. Great outdoor hot tub. Different layout. You walk into bedrooms and a living area. The kitchen is upstairs. Steep stairs not for people who have disabilities. Bedrooms have baseboard heating which I feel would be dangerous for small children. Two nice fireplace living areas. Much smaller than we expected for the price.
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.
