“A luxurious condominium in the mountain village at Steamboat. Acres of space and furnished and equipped to the highest standard. Staff here were relaxed and friendly yet very efficient,and nothing was too much trouble to make your stay enjoyable. Within steps of the slopes and with many good restaurants within a few minutes walk. Spa, games room, swimming pool and exercise room all in the complex. All positive - can’t think of anything to criticize!”

From the wrap-around decks to the warmth of the great room, you can soak in the views in the utmost comfort, while enjoying the ultimate convenience of a private mountain perch adjacent to the Steamboat Gondola with convenient ski-area, dining, and shopping access..

The expansive floor plan (3265 square feet in all) connects the kitchen, dining and living room creating a large free-flowing space at the heart of the residence, ideal for large groups, families, and entertaining. The residence is also fully equipped with state of the art a/v equipment, an iMac home computer and printer, and high speed WiFi.

The media room allows larger groups an extra living room with large screen TV and Xbox for the kids, plus additional sleeping capacity as there is a queen over queen bunk bed.

Christmas, no matter how old you get, brings a little magic to the world. With family cheer and holiday spirit all around in the community of Steamboat it’s hard not to have fun.

Add to this magical Christmas scene special ingredients like: skiing Champagne Powder®; relaxing in an outdoor hot tub; a cup of hot cocoa by the fire; holiday lights and sleigh ride-filled nights. It’s hard to beat!!

Here’s a sample of the Holiday Magic Steamboat Springs has to offer:

Enjoy the Moment

What’s not to enjoy? If you’ve opted for our Luxury Catered Chalet package, you can start the day with a full gourmet breakfast and head to the slopes. For all of our lodging guests we will save you time by pre-arranging lift tickets, ski rentals, and children’s ski lessons. You just have to gear up, and get ready for a day of fun! If you’re lucky, there will be a fresh dusting of powder or, if not, you can always find a good stash in one of Steamboat’s many tree runs.

It’s All About Family

After a day on the slopes, it’s time to relax, reconnect, and revel in the spirit of your friends and family. Take a soak in your hot tub, enjoy an aprés cocktail, or play a game of Scrabble. Perhaps head downtown for an afternoon of holiday shopping and let the lighted trees and lightly falling snow set the spirit.

Experience a Western Holiday

Have you ever been on a sleigh ride? We can help you find the best options to bundle up and enjoy a good, ol’ fashioned dash through the snow with a delicious dinner at the end. Another Steamboat tradition? Tubing! Let the cowboys (and girls) at Saddleback Ranch show the kids some fun off the ski slopes on their fully-groomed hill equipped with a state of the art tube-tow lift system.

Don’t Forget the Cheer

What’s a holiday without spending quality time together? You’ll have the holiday hustle and bustle no matter where you go, so don’t forget to take the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy your family. 

Set aside a day to stay in and enjoy everything your luxury accommodations have to offer: gourmet kitchens designed for preparing a holiday feast (don’t forget we can arrange a private chef too), to impressive home entertainment systems for endless Christmas movies, to the perfect venue for a holiday party. You’d be surprised at how much fun you can have just by staying “home!”
