About Kirsten

I have been staying in Crested Butte for 16 years and have come to love this unique and charming place and the friendly locals. It is magical and charming! Unique.

Since discovering Crested Butte I have hardly skied anywhere else and the summer is even better!

I chose my new home because of its PERFECT LOCATION in Mount CB, its MOUNTAIN VIEWS, SUNNY ASPECT from the picture windows. Also its practical layout with its updated kitchen/dining/living area, its easy to use pellet stove and proximity to the Snowcrest hot tub.

My condo combines great convenience with fabulous mountain views from several aspects (even when sitting down). The shared hot tub couldn't be much closer. My condo is practical & comfortable and ideally situated for winter and summer activities. Great for couples, friends and families. I am thrilled that all this is verified by the many great REVIEWS from guests and am delighted to share my special home so others can enjoy the benefits and make their own special memories.

Why Kirsten chose Mount Crested Butte

Crested Butte is a magical, charming and beautiful part of the world & my condo is ideal for enjoying this to the full.

The Historic town of Crested Butte has a unique character and the passion for the outdoor life is palpable everywhere. I have never known such a friendly and welcoming place.

Having skied around the world, Crested Butte is my favorite place due to its challenges, options, charm, beauty, friendliness and great conditions. Some quote is as 'the last great ski town on Colorado'. The summer is even better - it is known as the 'Wild Flower Capital of Colorado' and as 'Mountain Biking Heaven'. It has a unique charm.

It is accessible from Gunnison (30 miles) , Montrose (92) and Denver (227) Airports.

Full range of winter activities - downhill and nordic skiing, skate skiing, snow shoeing, sleigh rides.... A host of summer events Ride The Rockies, Crested Butte Bike Week, Pinnacle Bike series, Epic Relays, Quiznos Pro Challenge, Music Festivals, Wild Flower festival, Open air concerts, mini golf. Also very popular ZIP line. Look at the guide/event planners

What makes this condo unique

Being open plan, the 2 Picture windows open up my condo to provide almost all round mountain views even when sitting. It is also super super convenient. It is simple/practical and comfortable. Perfect for your getaway.

Better than Ski in Ski out........

Perfect location - 3/5 minute walk to the lifts (and free local bus) in the center of Mt CB and just far enough to enjoy peace away from the main center. Also great views of Mt CB (and the other mountains). It is 5 minutes to get into Crested Butte on the free bus.

The new shared Hot tub is a few steps from the front door and has the best hot tub views in Mt Crested Butte. You see the tub from my condo so can pick your time.

This is really better than Ski in Ski Out. Steps to the pedestrian bridge and you are in the center of the Base Area. Slightly elevated so quieter/private with great views but very very convenient. It's nice to walk through the center. Best of all worlds.

Great Condo, Great Location for skiing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed this condo for a ski trip over Spring Break 2018. The location has to be the next best thing to a true "ski-in/ski-out" that exists in the area. You are about 150 yards from the heart of the Base Area, 250 yards away from the main lifts, and 400 yards from the ski school area for kids. Walking in ski boots is fairly miserable anywhere, but it was a blessedly short trip across the catwalk each morning to drop off kids at ski school and get them situated. It was also an easy five minute walk to catch the bus and go enjoy the town of Crested Butte - all without the hassle of moving the car even once.

The facility was pleasantly quiet - no crowds, no college kids partying. We were probably the loudest ones around with a four year old splashing in the hot tub. The scene was much busier each evening when we walked through the Base Area to catch a bus, and we appreciated the quiet and privacy of our abode across the bridge.

The condo itself is exactly as represented in the photos. The wood pellet stove was very effective in warming the entire condo, and the views of the mountain are spectacular. I never made it up the ladder myself, but our kids loved playing in the loft. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The hot tub area has a gorgeous view, is conveniently located about 30 steps away, and the new tub works great. The property management was diligent about locking the tub at 9, eliminating any chance of any late night revelers bothering us next door. The only thing we never figured out was cable television. We only got local channels. It was probably for the best anyway - we were there to ski, not watch TV.

Alenka, the property manager, was very accommodating, allowing us to check in a couple hours early. Communication with both Alenka and Kirsten was excellent throughout the process. We thoroughly enjoyed Crested Butte, and would highly recommend this condo to you for your ski trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you - always delighted to hear from guests and the particular things liked. I love your details and description 'next best thing to a true 'ski in ski out'. I am never sure quite the best way to describe the great location! I will ask Alenka to check out the TV. Alenka and I try hard to help and be flexible so delighted it all worked out well.

Good location, close to base area.

  • 4 of 5

My nephew and I had a good stay at your property. The overall process (i.e., reservation, payment, check-in / check-out) was easy and convenient. The condo was appropriately equipped for our stay. The condo instructions' booklet was thorough and comprehensive. The property is located within walking distance to the main base area across the pedestrian bridge. This was convenient, but the steps to and from the bridge were a little tricky to navigate in ski boots while hauling skis. This is not as big of an issue in snowboard boots. Our ideal preference would have been a unit with both bathrooms on the same floor. We would consider renting this property again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you - a comprehensive review - greatly appreciated as it will be useful to other potential guests. I am very happy my condo was well equipped and situated and that the instruction booklet was helpful. Great clarification that my condo has a bathroom on the second bedroom floor and a shower room (with toilet, sink) on the first main entry/living area floor. Whilst it means going downstairs to shower, it saves going upstairs during the day for the toilet. Pros and Cons I guess. Just wanted to highlight that I have a lockable store unit on the first level in Snowcrest where skis and boots can be left to avoid carrying them up the steps. The views are great once you are up at my condo. Thank you very much again for the review and I hope other guests also appreciate the useful information.

Great location and great view.

  • 5 of 5

Place was great. We did plenty of hiking and having drinks in town. Great locations to enjoy dinner and drinks. Also, nice places to hike to with great views. Umbrella bar had 360 views, great drinks and commerodary. Condo was perfect to come back to and sit in front of the pellet stove. The hot tub that was right next to the place was being replaced so we unfortunately did not get to use it. It would have been nice but did not affect how much fun we had. The Vinotok festival was a trip!

Mt Crested Butte
Car: not necessary

Crested Butte - MEMORIES are made here. In the heart of the Rocky Mountains Crested Butte is s a magical escape from our hectic world and is a paradise for those that love the outdoors. Previously known for its extreme skiing, Crested Butte is now the perfect FAMILY vacation destination.

Vast range of winter and summer activities plus festivals, racing events.

It is known as the 'last great ski town', 'Colorado's wild flower capital', host of major biking & other events* and the friendliest locals ever. It maintains its historic heritage from its mining town days.

Extensive skiing (downhill, nordic, skate, snow shoeing & adaptive) for families and thrill seekers. Crowds are rarely an issue. Paradise indeed.

Hiking, biking, riding, fishing, white water rafting, kayaking and even sailing at Blue Mesa Lake (40 miles away and the largest lake in Colorado)

It is a foodie heaven - with its many unique restaurants (no chains here!) and don't forget the theater, cinema, museum and many many festivals (music, food, film, wild flower). Something for all the family. No car needed for many things given the easy free bus access between Mt Crested Butte & Crested Butte.

Crested Butte is simply great on your own, with friends or with the whole family. My condo is such a convenient place to stay when making your Crested Butte memories. Soak up the mountain views as the sun rises, whilst relaxing at the end of the day including from the new shared hot tub.

* Ride The Rockies, Crested Butte Bike Week, Pinnacle Bike series, Epic Relays, Quiznos Pro Challenge, Music Festivals, Wild Flower festival, Open air concerts, mini golf, zip line. Check out the many event guides.
