|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
This Ski in Ski out Condo is located on one of the highest condominium developments on Snowmass Mountain. ski or snowboard down to the lifts in the morning and ski directly to your condo for a break,lunch or at the end of a great day of skiing. The skiing of Snowmass and Aspen is the best in the world and this condo is a true ski in ski out location. There is a king size bed in the loft, and two built-in bunk beds downstairs, making this a perfect spot for a family of four vacation. There are two large flat screen TV's, a gas fireplace, a full kitchen, a deck with a view of the slopes, and a 'Human Touch' massage chair to help with those aching muscles at the end of the day. This is a corner unit which means extra room and an extra window.
We are a family of four and we originally bought the place when our two daughters were small and with children in mind.. . Our two daughters are now adults and still join us for trips to Snowmass.
John Crombie purchased this studio in 2001
After years of visiting Snowmass we finally found a property with a nice view, that was Ski in Ski out and worked for us and our two children. We love our wee mountain home and are sure you will too.
Beside the pool, the restaurant, the direct access to the ski slope, because it is a corner unit it has an extra window giving it more light, a feeling of space and of course it has a view.
Location: Top of the Village with direct ski access to the slope taking you to the Village Express Chair. You can leave your skis on the upper deck above the pool/jacuzzi (get a lock from front desk). Less than 15 steps walking in your boots to get to that deck through the south door. The apartment faces North with no vis-a-vis, and you can see the slope from the balcony. This apartment is in the main building of the Timberline Condos and is the most practical.
Amenities: 2 jacuzzis, one pool, one steam room (even a gym, if you feel like you did not do enough on the slopes). Very helpful reception/concierge. Courtesy van readily available to drop or pick you anywhere in Snowmass and from/to the airport. Daily maid service. You can order your ski-lift tickets online and have them delivered to Timberline. Restaurant in the main building (The Edge) obviously convenient and reasonable in quality/price.
Wi-Fi was sketchy at times but overall worked.
Owner: John C. is very friendly and responsive to any question.
Overall: the convenience of the location and quality of amenities make this apartment great. I hope to come back.
There was just the two of us and size-wise it's really ideal for a couple or family with no more than two young children. The pictures are very accurate but you don't see the kitchen or the bathroom both of which are modest but entirely servicable. You are on the third floor so walking up the stairs all the time may be an issue but it wasn't for us...you gain the wonderful vaulted ceiling and a sense of soaring space the other floors don't have. The views are stupendous and the corner aspect of the unit providing an extra window is of value too. Ski-in/ski-out cannot be beat! The loft is comfy and commodious even though the trek down the steep steps in the middle of the night to use the loo is enough to entirely wake you...no biggie, you're soooo tired from skiing you go right back to sleep. If you can't make it back upstairs just rack out on the sofa...sooper nice! The massage chair is a Gr8 touch & werks like a charm. Couldn't get the DVR to function, it musta been locked up or sumthin'!

The four mountains that make up the Aspen/Snowmass Ski area and are covered by both the Ski pass and the free bus service; ... Aspen Mountain (AKA Ajax), Aspen Highlands (The locals favorite), Buttermilk (Home of the "X" Games) and mighty Snowmass. These four mountains offer a variety of ski-ing that will meet the needs of ski-ers be they 1st timers, extreme cliff jumpers, young children or old timers... It just does not get any better. Snowmobiling and dogsledding are also available if you wish a day off and shopping in Aspen does not grab your fancy. Weekly fireworks display that you can watch from your balcony.
In Summer, it is even better... Rent a bike in the village.. ride it down to Aspen, grab an ice cream then follow the river down valley to the Woody Creek Tavern for lunch... Put your bike on the free bus and ride it back up the hill to home, biking was never before this great! Don't fancy bycycling how about golf, hot air ballooning or a sail plane ride. The white water rafting is awsome, the Hiking spectacular, a picnic at the Grottos recommended. Dont miss the free weekly concert just outside your door that others come from all over to enjoy or the weekly rodeo and BBQ held at the lower Village lot.
Down valley there is the hot springs and therapeutic caves of Glenwood Springs and if you are into Fishing!!! The Frying Pan river is world famous for its monster trout.
The big news in the area is the discovery of a "Monster" cache of prehistoric beasts at the bottom of Snowmass Lake.. Last october (2010) Jesse Steele, while working his bulldozer to expand Ziegler Reservoir uncovered the bones of a juvenile Columbian mammoth!! Ever since then, the community of Snowmass Village has developed “mammoth” fever Soon after, the excavation went into full swing when Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) scientists & their team of experts descended upon Snowmass and discovered more mammoths, mastodons, a Jefferson ground sloth, gigantic ice age bisons, a small deer and a salamander along with well-preserved plant matter, ancient insects and invertebrates revealing an exceptionally preserved Ice Age ecosystem. Apparently the cold and low oxygen content at the bottom of the lake preserved the animals in a mommy like conditiom. This is new news and current info is best found with a google search on the subject, but it is for sure yet another sight seeing spot in the area.
