About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Complete remodel just finished. Everything is brand new, stainless steel applicances, granite counter tops, 2 Jacuzzi tubs, and professional decorated. This Edelweiss condominium is slope-side and one of the best places to stay on the mountain. Think of putting on your skies right at your back door and begin skiing. No elevators, no roads, nothing but the ski slope.

Our vacation home can be your private hideaway. Gather around the cozy fireplace while enjoying beautiful views and begin making memories with your family and friends.

Winter Season: We are directly on the slope of Yellow Brick Trail. Ours is one of only 12 Edelweiss condominium directly on the ski slope. Enjoy the best skiing or snowboarding, then at the end of your day, ski to your covered patio, step out of your gear, and step into your vacation hideaway. Out your back door the slope now turns into your backyard sledding hill.

The non-skier will have a wonderful and exciting time as well. Snowmobile tours, dog sled rides, sledding, tubing, and the incredible stargazing night tours. Of course, there is always the great shopping, fine dining, art galleries, and the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Spring, Summer, and Fall, this is a great time to explore GhostTowns, Messa Verde Indian Ruins, enjoy Colorado's wildflowers, mountain views that are breathtaking, and cascading waterfalls. If golf is your game there are several great courses in the area.

The entire family will enjoy the scenic lift ride, hiking, mountain bike riding, family ropes course, water runners, zipline, alpine slide, bungee trampoline, mechanical bull, climbing wall, miniature golf, and disc golf.

About Leslie Hennig

My husband and I live in Florida, the Tampa Bay area. We have 1 grown daughter who lives in New York. We are all avid skiers as well as scuba divers. Our love for travel and skiing brought us to Durango more than 30 years ago. We love it there.

Leslie Hennig purchased this condo in 2005

Why Leslie Hennig chose Southwestern Colorado

Location, Location, Location!!!! You can not beat the "Directly ON the ski slope" location in the winter. In the summer the wild flowers are all blooming in your back yard and then the fall what can I say - the colors on the trees out the windows are magnificent. The best all year.

What makes this condo unique

ON the ski slope - walk one step off your patio and you are ON the slope - ski down to the lift and ski down to your condo.

Views during summer and fall

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the walking distance to Durango Mountain Village activities. Condo kitchen lacked for nothing. Family of 5 enjoyed games, outdoor access to play from back door. Recommend highly!

Only negative was we couldn't get grill to consistently work with enough flame to cook steaks or hamburgers.

Owner's Response: Vacations with family are the best and especially when the condo lives up to your expectations. I am so please you wrote and told me about the BBQ grill. It has already been fixed awaiting the next family. Please come again we would love to have you make more wonderful memories at our place. All the Best, Leslie

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described and as shown in the photos. Its a short ski to lifts 1 & 6 that both access the top of the mountain, and you're off from there. We returned by Styx or Lower Hades (both black) that took us right to the front door! Wonderful! ( There is also a traverse trail from Upper Demon (easy blue) to just above the condo for beginners)

Owner's Response: You could not have stated the ski/in and out any better. With a condo "ON" the ski slope you just ski. And, whether you are an expert like yourselves (skiing the black difficult slopes) back to the condo or you wish to take the beginner Yellow Brick Road you end up skiing back right to the condo's door. I am so glad you all had such a wonderful time and our place was perfect for your group. Please come back again soon. Leslie
