Skiers across the world dream of owning ski in/ ski out property, and Crested Butte Mountain Resort has some of the best properties with direct access to ski runs that you can find in Colorado. Nothing beats the convenience of being able to walk out the door and click in to your skis or snowboard and head straight to the lift. I live in a ski in/ski out property myself. Even as an avid skier, I thought ski in / ski out might be just a nice bonus, but the ability to put on ski boots in my warm mudroom and walk out of the door for a quick lunch break ski has been much more than that.
Ski in/ ski out does not mean, as I have been asked at times, that the home can only be accessed with skis (as one would find at a seasonal property in a location such as Irwin). Also, it does not apply to properties that are close to the ski area but are not actually on a ski run, such as the Grand Lodge, or The Plaza. Properties that are close to the ski area, but not actually adjacent to it, are best described as “skier access”. It is the same difference as beachfront property compared to “ocean view” or “beach access” properties that aren’t directly on the beach. That said, properties that are just a few minutes away can offer great value. For buyers that are considering short term renting a condo or home while they aren’t using it themselves, the ability to market a property as ski in/ ski out can pay off with higher rental rates.
Not only does Crested Butte have a number of great ski in ski out locations, in many cases it’s far more affordable than what can be found at other ski areas like Vail or the Summit County resorts. Unlike those ski resorts, the most expensive real estate in Crested Butte can be found in town, rather than at the ski area. For those looking for a home or home site to build their dream home on, some of the most likely areas include the Summit subdivision, parts of Anthracite drive, Gold Link, and Prospect. Several condo buildings near the Crested Butte Mountain Resort base area are ski-in/ski-out, such as West Wall, Crested Mountain, The Buttes, Axtell, San Moritz, Silver Ridge, and Paradise.
