Guestbook comments from the owner


We have not ironed out our exact dates for a Christmas ski vacation yet, but we will soon. Like I stated before, we were so pleased with the accommodations and location, that I just don’t think we would want to do anything different this year.

Dec 17-22, 2016 - Spacious, clean and would definitely rent again. Less than a 10 minute walk to the lifts. Shuttle to and from Crested Butte just outside the condo building. Clean hot tub within steps of the condo as well.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!!!!

Overall our stay and experience was top notch. We had a last minute ski race in CB and Bart worked with us on everything quickly and efficiently.

The condo is spacious, right near the lifts and well equipped. Would stay here again.

updates are great

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here several times and I love this condo. You can't beat the spaciousness of this condo. And the view is great. Love the nice front porch and stone fireplace. This year I was happy to see they have redone the bathrooms, and made some improvements in the bedrooms (good beds!) and kitchen. So its better than ever. A friend of my niece slept on the couch and even the foldout couches have good mattresses. A real bargain.

Very nice and convenient to ski lift. Everything one needs to be like a home away from home. Lots room for two couples or more. Hope to return some day. Good view of the slopes.

The Ponderosa is within walking distance to the Crested Butte ski slopes. It is fun to watch the ski lifts start up in the morning and to watch the snow cats at night grooming the slopes for the next day of skiing. The location is right above the day parking lot for skiers. In the summer, our property is perfect for either mountain biking, road cycling, or hiking from the front door. It is conveniently located next to a bus stop for a free ride into the town of Crested Butte.

Plenty of adventure activities are available in the Crested Butte ski area. We enjoy snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and in summer, biking, day hikes, and touring remote mountain roads and passes. There are many community events that are scheduled throughout the summer for all interests.

For the back country extreme skiers, Crested Butte ranks as having some of the greatest amount of extreme terrain available for snowboarding and skiing that is accessible by lift. That is what keeps us coming back for more!

There are many opportunities to stay fit with a cross fit gym in town, yoga studios, and ice hockey and nordic center that rents cross country skis and snow shoes. One of our favorite trips includes XC skiing to the yurt deep in the trees surrounding Peanut Lake. There are organized dinners throughout the ski season that allow you to ski/snowshoe by the moonlight.
