Welcome to our 'Mountain Home' in one of Colorado's finest all season resorts and discover the magic at Durango Mountain Resort. Gather around our cozy fireplace while enjoying the beautiful views and begin making memories with your family and friends. Sit and relax in our condo while viewing many mountain activities, skiers going by outside and the high-speed 6 passenger chair lift going up the mountain.

Remodel just finished. All new kitchen cabinets, stainless steel applicances, granite counter tops, bath vanities, jetted tub, new mattessses, and professional decorated.

Winter Season: Our mountain home is not just a true 'Ski-In and Ski-Out' but we are directly on the ski slope (Yellow Brick Road - Beginer Slope). Ours is one of only 12 Edelwiss condos directly on the ski slope. No hauling your equipment across the parking lots or in the elevators. The fluffy powder (260 foot annual average) is your invitation to the best skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. Then, at the end of the day, ski to your covered patio, step out of your gear, and step into your vacation hide-away.

The non-skier will have fun and excitement with snowmobile tours, dog sled rides, ice skating, sledding, riding the snow coaster (tubing), watch the downhill skiers and snowboards come down right outside your windows, and the incredible stargazing night tours. Of course, there is always great shopping, fine dining, art galleries, and the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Spring, Summer, and Fall: This is the time to explore deserted ghost towns, Mesa Verde Indian Ruins, enjoy Colorado's cascading waterfalls, wildflowers, and breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains. If golf is your game, it can only improve with the altitude (balls fly 14% farther) at the three championship courses in the area. The resort offers family ropes course, water runners, zipline, alpine slide, mountain bike trails and uplift, bungee trampoline, mechanical bull, climbing wall, miniature golf, and disc golf.

Our condo is perfect for your family vacation, reunion, or just fun with your group of friends. This spacious, four bedroom, three bath, luxury condo sleeps ten people comfortably, and has covered parking at your front door. Decorator furnished in natural Rocky Mountain style with art from local artists, and a warm relaxing wood burning fireplace (wood provided). Everyone is charmed by this tastefully decorated condo with a full-size kitchen, a romantic master suite, and all the comforts of home.

Whether you want to be in the heart of the action on the mountain, use our home for your base of operation to explore the Durango area, or if you just want to escape to the peace and quiet. Our mountain home is just the right place for your group.

                                                                The condo was everything we wanted and more!

                                                                This condo looks even better in person! Everything was extremely clean and the home was designed so nicely. The condo is right on the slope and we had a great time exploring the resort. Durango just a short drive is a great town and it was nice coming back to a peaceful home with a gorgeous view of the mountain. Would love to make this a regular trip and keep coming back to stay at Leslie's home! She made it so easy to book our stay and gave us all the information we needed as first time visitors, all the hard work was done for us! Thanks for a great trip!!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We are so glad you and your family had such a wonderful time at our condo and in the area. We do hope that you can come again and explore the mountains a little bit more. We also want to thank you for treating our condo like it was your own home. And as always travel safely and happily.

                                                                Thank you,


                                                                Great condo to enjoy Purgatory.

                                                                This is a super condo which offers everything you need to enjoy a great ski trip. The kids love it also and always want to go back to the same condo each year. Ski right to the door and back out again after lunch. Then enjoy a great warm fire in the fireplace while having dinner.

                                                                You won't find a better location and such great hosts!!

                                                                We had family and friends stay with us and the condo was perfect. The kitchen is fully stocked with more than you need for cooking any meal. We really enjoyed the fireplace with plenty of free wood in the carport.

                                                                The location can not be beat - we kept our skis on the patio where you can grab them and step directly onto the ski slope, ski to the lift, and easily ski back to the patio when your ready. Talk about being spoiled!

                                                                Thank you for sharing your condo we will be back.

                                                                We liked it. Just wish we had more snow. Please keep in mind that this location, which is where the ski resort is, is around 30 min from downtown Durango. You will need transportation.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                So glad you all had a great time and thank you for reaching out to me via text during your stay. It is always nice to hear from our families. Snow, yes there can always be more! Thank you for the blurb about the driving distance it should help other families in the future. Hope to see you again soon.

                                                                We had a wonderful time, great memories!! Having a home away from home that comfortably fits everyone is great! We had everything we could possibly need to make our trip absolutely perfect, warm, inviting, hot water, thank you!!

                                                                Once again the stay in Durango exceeded our expectations. This townhouse is perfectly located on the slopes with easy access to the main ski areas. The townhouse is beautifully maintained with all the modern conveniences. We have rented from this owner for many years now and have always been pleased with the friendly and very responsive feedback. Thank you so much for another wonderful, unforgettable, family Christmas in Durango.
