This 5 bedroom / 6 bath house sleeps 17 people! Located a short walk from the ski lifts, this uniquely decorated house is nestled in the pines with spectacular views of the continental divide. Relax in the 6 person hot tub after a day of skiing at one of Colorado’s premier ski resorts or mountain biking in the surrounding national forest. The Village at Winter Park is a short walk to coffee shops, restaurants, bars, shopping, tubing and outdoor ice skating!
This house has all the character you'd want for your relaxing vacation. The open floor plan and large kitchen allows for all your holiday and vacation cooking needs. The interior décor includes artisan metalwork and historic photos of the Frasier Valley. Kids will have a blast in their own bunk room and adults can enjoy one of the 4 other bedrooms featuring king, queen and full-sized beds. Although not ADA compliant, two of the bedrooms (and the kids' bunk room) are located on the main floor with only a couple steps from the driveway.
There are free shuttles to the Village at Winter Park or to the Town of Winter Park and a bike/pedestrian path connects the two areas. Both offer plentiful entertainment opportunities – from coffee shops and restaurants to ice skating and shopping. In winter, you can simply walk outside the door of the Ski Haus and enjoy cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, or stay in and snuggle by the fire reading a book. In summer, the options are also endless - ranging from the tame (putt-putt golf and hiking in the national forest) to the extreme (downhill mountain biking).
Part of the Winter Park charm is the railroad track that runs the length of the town and the valley. The Ski Haus is less than 30 meters from the tracks and while many enjoy the sound of trains, some may not.

Getting to the slopes: Either an easy 10 minute walk to the ski lift (Gemini Express) along an access road that parallels the train tracks or walk 150 meters to the bottom of Fir Drive for a free shuttle to the Village at Winter Park.
Returning from the slopes: take the Turnpike run until you see the haus. It requires navigating an intermediate slope (technically outside the ski area), the access road, and the train tracks. If there has not been recent snow, you may need to walk about 100 feet from the access road to the front door. Beginner skiers and snowboarders may need to walk 5-10 minutes to get back to the haus.
NO PETS AND NO SMOKING Smoking is NOT allowed anywhere on the property (inside and outside) and includes marijuana. No parties are allowed. If you are looking for a party house, please look elsewhere.
If you have any special needs or requests, please feel free to ask. We know how special your vacation is and we will do our best to help you enjoy it to the fullest.
