Our home has actually 5 bedrooms: 3 king bedrooms, 1 bunk room(4 single beds) and 1 loft (2 single beds).

A kitchen is located to the left and is fully equipped with a SubZero refrigerator, electric Jennaire stove, microwave, oven, and dishwasher. It has cooking and eating utensils, glassware and plates, coffee maker, a toaster, blender and a TV.

The dinning room accomodates 12 people. Both the kitchen and dinning room have newly refinished hardwood floors.

During the summer and autumn, the generous deck, facing north and west, has a large round table with 6 chairs, 2 lounge chairs and a sun umbrella. You can enjoy the view with morning coffee/tea or have a glass a wine and yes, enjoy the view!

The living room is carpeted and has a tall beamed ceiling with a wood burning fireplace, a stereo system, bookshelves loaded with books about Aspen/Snowmass, and a flat screen TV.

The spacious first master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, TV and is located up one level with views facing south of High Alpine and the Wall ski slopes.

The cozy fifth bedroom loft with twin beds is on the top level, (above the master) accessible by a spiral staircase. It has great views across the valley.

About Karin Olsen Campia

Our family has skied extensively each year in Snowmass for the past 32 years. We also sail, hike, are avid golfers, tennis players, rowers and cyclists. We have raised 2 daughters and love sharing many wonderful outdoor experiences with them. Both girls love the fun and exciting mountain activities that Snowmass Mountain has to offer and are expert skiers.

Karin Olsen Campia purchased this House in 1987

Why Karin Olsen Campia chose Snowmass Village

Snowmass Village is a fantastic place to spend quality time with our family. Our home is located a third of the way up the mountain so you can by-pass the often crowded lower lifts by skiing to the Gondola mid-station or by taking a short walk to the High Alpine lift. We love the proximity to the mountains and the activities that are available in the winter as well as the summer. Aspen is a short 5 miles away, so movie theaters, restaurants and great shopping are close but do not dominate our vacation.

What makes this House unique

We love the mountain views and the fact that our home feels private and secluded among the tall pine trees. When the wind blows, the trees sigh and rustle. A snow storm is the perfect time to curl up with a good book and watch the snow swirl around the large glass windows of the living room as a fire burns in the fireplace. Absolutely wonderful!

                                                                  Our family of 9 had a wonderful week at Basecamp. It felt very spacious and the living area was awesome for our family. The bedrooms were perfect for our family of singles and marrieds. The kitchen has everything you need and the dining/breakfast room was perfect. Even with limited snow the ski access was very easy. No need to go to the bottom of the mountain as you can catch the Elk Camp Gondola at the mid station. Thank you for sharing such a special place.

                                                                  Wonderful house and location to spend a vacation on Snowmass Mountain!

                                                                  Russell K.

                                                                  BaseCamp is a wonderful place to spend your time on Snowmass Mountain. The listing description was accurate and the property was spacious, clean, and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and very easy to deal with. Our party of two couples with four boys thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. It seemed like being home, except for the stunning views and the close proximity to the slopes! We enjoyed skiing out and in every day that we were there. I would highly recommend this house to family and friends. We will be back.

                                                                  We are so pleased that you had an enjoyable stay at BaseCamp! We look forward to having you visit again soon. Best wishes!

                                                                  We were 3 couples off for a week of skiing without the kids. The house has 3 master suites and was very comfortable for 3 adult couples. We didn't use the bunk room or loft, although if the kids had come along there would have been ample room. The nicest feature of this house is that its feels like a home. There are so many personal touches. We all had the feeling like we were staying at a friends house, not a rental.

                                                                  Our week in heaven!

                                                                  Our extended family gathered for a reunion in this lovely home. There was plenty of space for us all to be together and also for all of us to have privacy. The owner, Karin, was very easy to work with and the property manager, Andrew, was very attentive and helped clear away the nearly 3 feet of snow we got during that week! The house and kitchen were well equipped, including plenty of dry firewood! We would love to return! Many thanks for allowing us enjoy the comforts of your home~
