About the property

Located off Burgess Creek just below Thunderhead lift.

Because location matters, we welcome you to Trails Edge. Whether you’re planning a day of champagne powder skiing in the winter or hiking and mountain biking in the summer, all you have to do is step out the door. Choose to ski down to the mountain base via the Right O Way ski run (easy green run) or take a short walk up to the Thunderhead lift to access the top of the mountain for “first tracks”. The ski runs make great trails for hiking, mountain biking and even playing a round of disc golf on the 19 “hole” course during our gorgeous summer months. Our decks are a great place to watch hot air balloons rise over the valley, gaze up at Mt Werner and the Steamboat ski resort and of course our beautiful mountain sunsets. With the new addition, the deck is larger and features a gas grill and seating area.

After a day of outside fun, return to the house for some time to relax. Enjoy a soak in the hot tub, watch a movie or your favorite ballgame on the big screen TV, play a game of ping pong, or curl up with a good book and wait for the sunset – you won’t be disappointed. Your group can prepare a terrific meal in our newly remodeled kitchen which features a top of the line Jenn-Air range/oven. The open floor plan will invite everyone to gather for food and conversation around the dining room and breakfast bar with additional seating in the solarium.

When you’re ready to call it a night, we offer 5 bedrooms which sleep 14. Beyond the bedrooms is a redesigned queen+ sleeper sofa by American Leather which promises comfort for 2 in the upper level solarium. The lower level bedroom also doubles as a TV/ rec room and features accordion doors for privacy. There are 5 bathrooms, 2 new with this years addition and the other 3 with updates and remodeling completed for the 2014/15 season.

Just minutes away is charming, downtown Steamboat Springs. Filled with an abundance of fantastic restaurants and lots of shopping, it’s a great place to spend a day or evening. Be sure to visit Howelson Hill where many US Olympians train for Nordic ski jumping. Or have some fun of your own with snow tubing in the winter and riding the alpine slide in the summer, with an ice arena just a few steps down the street.

There are 3-4 parking spaces available. During snow season our road is rated '4 WHEEL DRIVE'. There are no deliveries by UPS & FedEx during these months. We strongly recommend 4 wheel drive vehicles only during this season. (Yes, the snow is that good!)

About Todd Stauffer

After graduating from Steamboat High School in 1981 it has always been my dream to come back to this area. With my parents' passing, I really wanted to keep this special property in the family. It is filled with lots of memories of holidays spent together watching our families grow. So with our children grown and now having grandchildren of our own we decided it was the perfect time to return to the mountain. We are so blessed to be able to live here in Steamboat and be able to share this place with others.

Todd Stauffer purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd Stauffer chose Steamboat Springs

When my parents purchased the land in 1976 my brother, sisters and I were absolutely amazed. We had been vacationing here for several years and were thrilled that they were going to build their home here.

What makes this house unique

We may be a little biased, but feel we have the best location at Mt Werner. Trails Edge offers not only ski-in/ski-out access, but also spectacular views in a quiet neighborhood setting. The home's 3 levels provide several separate living areas for guests to enjoy different activities.

Excellent Ski House

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a multi-generational family and friends ski vacation. The house is well equipped for cooking, stashing ski gear, hosting children and entertaining. The ski-in/ski- out feature made it easy for our group to come and go at different times and to eat lunch in as desired. Attentive hosts were responsive to questions and requests. Definitely recommend this lovely home with updated kitchen and bathrooms.

great ski in/ski out house in Steamboat

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 5 nights at the Trails Edge Chalet on our annual guys trip. The hosts are wonderful. The house is big. The location can't be beat. The house is very well equipped. Everything we needed was there. This is one of the cleanest houses we have leased in our 28 years of guy trips. Highly recommended! Thanks Todd and Sherri.

Just step outside to access hiking and mountain biking trails. Thunderhead ski lift is just 200 yards up the hill which provides access to the 19 'hole' disc golf course.

A favorite attraction just minutes away is beautiful Fish Creek Falls. There is a paved trail to the falls overlook as well as a well maintained walking trail down to the base of the falls.
