Vacation Condos Near Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Other Ski Resorts
Though associated with world-class skiing, northwestern Colorado's Rocky Mountains are a worthy destination for any season. In the winter, powdery snow blankets the slopes at the country's most popular resorts. In warmer months, that snow becomes crystal springs and crashing waterfalls, including the 80-foot triple waterfall at Rifle Falls State Park. SkyRun Vacation Rentals has more than 200 condos at five resorts that immerse visitors in the natural beauty at Silverthorne, Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, Summit County, and the U.S. Ski Team training site Copper Mountain. Whether one wants to ski on Breckenridge's four mountains or find prime fishing spots along Silverthorne's Blue River, SkyRun's properties allow visitors to stay in Colorado's most scenic spots.
Each condo comes equipped with full kitchens fully stocked with pots, pans, and dishwashers. Many also boast tennis courts and heated outdoor pools—a welcoming sight after a day cruising the slopes. SkyRun's Copper Mountain property features 22 lifts and more than 2,000 skiable acres, while SkyRun's Lone Eagle property at Keystone sleeps up to six at a ski-in, ski-out village on the banks of the Snake River. There, a crackling stone fireplace warms the room on a chilly night, and a jetted tub relaxes sore muscles. The spacious three-bedroom Crosstimbers Trail condo at Steamboat Springs exudes an outdoorsy vibe with log furnishings, wall-mounted fish, and complimentary bottles of mountain air.
Northwestern Colorado: Ski Towns with Storied Past
With North America's Continental Divide snaking through the area, northwest Colorado boasts some of the world's most popular ski resorts and several mountains reaching elevations of more than 13,000 feet. Though ski seasons vary based on snow conditions and are subject to change, skiers can typically hit the slopes until early to mid April, with snow lasting until early June at nearby Arapahoe Basin. The snow-capped peaks and powdery bowls attract snowshoers and skiers.
In addition to their outdoor beauty, many of the towns with SkyRun condos retain historical attractions. Breckenridge's Victorian architecture provides a glimpse of the town's 19th-century mining days. A visit to downtown Steamboat Springs feels like stepping into an Old West town, with its summertime rodeos and century-old stone buildings.
