Overview

About the property

Sleeps 8-12

Come and enjoy one of the largest and favorably located ski-in ski-out condos in Breckenridge. Skiwatch 432 is the largest unit in the building but it is an ideal place to stay no matter how many are in your group. Compare our beautiful unit to One Ski Hill Place and the Grand Colorado on Peak 8 or to Crystal Peal Lodge on Peak 7, and there is no better value for a true ski-in/ski-out on the mountain.

The unit is a large 3 bedroom 3 full bath two story (over 1,600 square feet) completely renovated condominium. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, heated slate floors and professionally decorated with all the right touches. Very clean and comfortable and a perfect home away from home.

*Fully Equipped Kitchen

*Living Room w/ Vaulted Ceiling & Large Stone Fireplace

*Large Deck overlooking the Ski Slopes

*Master Suite with 1 King Bed

*Second Bedroom with 2 Queen Beds

*Third Bedroom with 1 Double Bed and Twin Bunk Beds

*Queen Sleeper Sofa in Great Room

This is a phenomenal location for any ski enthusiast or first-timer and at a price that is significantly less than other options located on Peak 7 and 8 such as One Ski Hill Place and Crystal Peak Lodge ---- yet with the same quality interior. Enjoy the comfort & convenience of being right on the slopes and having immediate access to a variety of trails -- novice, intermediate, advanced and expert. There are two high-speed quadchairs directly in front of Skiwatch, the Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Superchairs. Just put on your skis and head 100 yards down the hill to catch a ride. Peak 8 has over 1100 skiable acres out of the 2358 acres available in Breckenridge. Peak 7 has over 300 acres which can be accessed from Peak 8. Peaks 9 and 10 are connected by lifts with Peak 8. The Ski School and Kids' Castle are located at the base area below our building. Breckenridge lift tickets are interchangeable with Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, and other Vail Resort Ski Areas. The base area also has the Ski Hill Grill restaurant, T-Bar lounge and a ski shop. You can also access the BreckConnect gondola, which transports you to Peak 7 or directly into town, where you will find restaurants, shopping, breweries and the Breckenridge night life.

The building has attached, private, covered parking on two levels, so no need to worry about the elements when coming to or from your car. In the last two years, the building has undergone extensive interior and exterior renovations to update décor and improve appearance.

After a great day of skiing on our world class slopes, relax by the fire while you enjoy the beautiful views that our unit has to offer.

About Robert Arensberg

My parents started taking my four brothers and our sister on ski trips to Breckenridge from our small town in northeastern Kansas back in 1977. We fell in love with the place so much so that we returned every year. We have many fond memories of our time at Breck and can't believe it has been over 30 years since we first visited. We all currently reside in the Kansas City area and continue to spend time there in the winter but we make it a point to go back during the summer too. It's great to be able to take our kids to a place we enjoyed so much growing up.

Robert Arensberg purchased this condo in 1988

Why Robert Arensberg chose Breckenridge Area

When we traveled from our hometown to Breckenridge, Skiwatch was the very first unit we ever stayed in. From that point on, we always returned and grew accustomed to the convenience of simply putting on our gear and skiing down to the lifts. When the unit was up for sale, we didn't hesitate a minute and it has remained in our family ever since. We started renting it shortly after we bought it so that other families could enjoy it as much as we had. We recently remodeled the entire unit, tearing it down to the studs. We made significant modifications and our desire was to update it in such a way as to provide a wow factor for anyone who stays here. Based on the feedback, and the fact that recent building renovations incorporated our design elements, we succeeded in our efforts. We added a full bath to the upstairs bedroom, created a more open concept kitchen/living area and expanded room for storage. It is spacious and comfortable.

Breckenridge is a great area. It is unlike other ski resort destinations in that the town was here long before anyone took to the slopes. Gold was first discovered along the Blue River, which runs through town, in 1859. Breckenridge does contain more than 350 historic structures, making it the largest historic district in the state of Colorado. It is a great town to walk around in with plenty of shops and great restaurants to choose from. It has charm and character which always brings us back.

What makes this condo unique

There is no doubt that the greatest feature of this unit is the fact that you can grab breakfast, put on your ski gear, step outside the back door, put on your skis, and head down to the lift. It is so convenient that it's hard to beat. When you are cold, tired or hungry, just ski in and take a rest. With the sun out and shining on the deck in the afternoon we have often found ourselves sitting outside to enjoy the weather.

Family Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lovely condo for my children and grandchildren to all come out to Breckenridge for a little family vacation in August, 2017. It is a beautiful home - updated and very well-maintained - and it is right next to the Epic Discovery Ultimate Playground and the gondola that takes you down the mountain into the town. The location is PERFECT!

Making the rental arrangements was amazingly easy, and the owner was so responsive to any needs or questions we had.

I would HIGHLY recommend this condo to anyone!!

Good location with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and enough room for everyone to have there own space. Owner was very accommodating. Highly recommend! The only thing I would recommend is having fans in the rooms. It got stuffy in all the rooms even with the windows open but overall loved the place.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, size and style of this condo. It was perfect for the four adults and could have easily accommodated more without being crowded. The owner was very responsive and the condo was well equipped. We would stay here again!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at skiwatch. The condo was very well stocked with kitchen supplies as well as all basic cleaning supplies! There is even a fairly well stocked spice selection and condiments. First VRBO that has had these additional amenities. The location was great for our kids and an easy walk to the gondola for a ride into town. 7$ Uber ride home. We will definitely be back!

This was the best rental I have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Skiwatch 432 is an amazing rental with more than enough space for my group of 7 adults. Upon arrival the rental condo was spotless and had all of the essentials that were promised. The kitchen is huge and everything worked perfectly. My personal favorite part of the condo is the massive porch which sports some of the best views you can ask for. We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and got to enjoy hiking paths right outside the front door. The phrase Ski-In/Ski-Out can sometimes be misleading but it is a perfect description for this Condo. It is directly on the ski run. I will 100% be returning to stay at this condo in the winter so that I can experience a true Ski-in/Ski-Out condo.

The property is located at the base of Peak 8 ski area in Breckenridge, Colorado. There are two restaurants within walking distance of the condo in case you want to forgo a trip into town. Sevens, located at the base of Peak 7 and The Living Room which is in One Ski Hill Place located below Skiwatch. If you prefer a night out, take the time to walk around on Main Street where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. It's a very quaint town and has tremendous character.
