This year (2015-2016 ski season), the featured listing for $249,000 includes Christmas and you can reserve additional weeks when space is available.

Families love this concept for the convenience, great floor plan and ease of getting to the slopes and other activites in Steamboat.

Location, location, you won’t find anything close to the ski slopes for under $700,000 with 3 or more bedrooms and low HOA dues, but you can live on the 4th tee of Rolling Stone Ranch and Golf course.
