Property description

Location, location, location! This summer retreat and winter ski condo provides easy access to all Girdwood has to offer. It's one of the best locations for ski access in Girdwood. Chair 3 is just above us - walk around the building to get to the lift. Take Chair 3 up and ski down to either the tram or Chair 4 to reach the rest of the mountain. Also just steps from The Sitzmark, Jack Sprat, the Bake Shop & La Bodega.

Newly remodeled one bedroom and one bath provide ample room for a family with a couple of small kids on the sofa sleeper. Indoor ski & boot storage, room for bikes on the deck. All dishes, kitchen equipment, linens and towels provided. We think the transformation is fantastic, so I left the before pics up too. We still have some loose ends and a few decor changes, but we'll continue updating as we can!

The $300 damage deposit will be refunded as soon as we have verified the parking pass has been returned and there is no damage. It usually posts back to guests credit card within 5-7 business days.

Car: Recommended

Reach Girdwood via a breathtaking 40 minute drive down Turnagain Arm from Anchorage. Summer hiking & mountain biking at Alyeska Resort, dog sled rides on the glacier or in Moose Meadows, Girdwood Center for Visual Arts, and wonderful local restaurants are just feet from our slopeside condo.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Danny spent a few bachelor years living here full time. Michelle tried to live in Girdwood, but couldn't handle the daily commute to Anchorage. It's been a ski locker/weekend get away since we bought a house in Anchorage in 2005. We still get out to Girdwood every chance we get, and if you aren't using the condo, chances are we will be. Check out Michelle's glass art & jewelry in the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts gallery next to The Bake Shop while you're out too!

Why the Owner Chose Girdwood, Anchorage, AK, USA:
Girdwood is a laid back little ski town all year long. It's just far enough from Anchorage to get away from the hustle and bustle and has easy access to winter and summer activities. Downhill skiing at Alyeska is the biggest draw, but there are wonderful Nordic ski trails and lots of hiking & mountain biking opportunities too. Girdwood definitely has character. Walk to The Bake Shop, GCVA gallery, La Bodega for wine or to fill your growler, or Jack Sprat. Walk, bike or grab the shuttle to the hotel or downtown. Winter Creek Trail is a local favorite for waterfalls and a hand tram across the creek.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, location, location. It's one of the best locations for ski access in Girdwood. Chair 3 is just above us & perfect access for families with kiddos (or beginners like Michelle). Take Chair 3 up and ski down to either the tram or Chair 4 to reach the rest of the mountain.
