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.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Colorado. There was enough space for the 7 of us to be comfortable. The location is great - we could easily walk to the ski resort, which had a bunch of summer activities. In the evenings, it was just a short drive to downtown Crested Butte, which has lots of good restaurants. Bart, the owner, was very responsive to my inquiries. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Love the condo and the location. Only downside is that you’re not allow to burn real wood in the fireplace. Go to town Ace Hardware and buy a box of duralogs for the fireplace ambience.

Beautiful Views and Convenient to Transportation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Crested Butte. The condo was very convenient to town and trails because of Free! public transportation. Wildflowers were beautiful and weather was perfect. We would come back.

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.
