Downtown Breckenridge is the pride of Colorado mountain towns, offering a wonderful main street, fine dining, and shopping galore. Home to festivals and celebrations year round, the mountain community is known for its vibrant culture as well as its gentle skiing terrain. At the base of Peak 8 is One Ski Hill Place, an ultimate luxury getaway in the cozy mountain town.
Home to 88 ski-in ski-out condominiums, One Ski Hill Place is perfect for luxury travelers and families alike. Complete with an aquatics center, 10,000 square feet of outdoor function space, media and game room, and its own bowling alley, the year-round resort has an activity for everyone. Recently opened as a RockResort, the high luxury standards are as lofty as the altitude, affording the amenities of sister RockResort properties around the globe.
Steps from the slopes, One Ski Hill Place is located at the base of Peak 8. With access to four lifts, the prime location is great for both winter and summer activities; skiing and snowboarding and hiking and biking. A gondola also provides easy access to the hip and happening Downtown Breckenridge, arguably one of the best main streets in the mountains.
A certain duality can be felt on-property, with two movie screening rooms, two pools, two hot tubs, and the two-lane bowling alley. With sweeping views of Peak 8 and amenities galore, a stay on-property is almost as fun as the nearby outdoor sports and activities.
The lower lobby affords cozy lounge areas with a roaring fireplace. Rustic yet chic décor can be felt throughout the property, with wood beams, stone finishes and rich leather accents complimenting the surrounding area and mountain theme.
Home to three restaurants: The Living Room, T-Bar and Ski Hill Grill, the lively atmosphere of T-Bar and the seductive food and quiet ambiance of The Living Room make for completely different dining experiences. For beautiful sunny days in the mountains, a 300-person heated sun deck is the perfect place to take in the mountain air and relax with friends and family.
Panoramic glass walls and ceilings encase the Aquatics Center. With an Adult Soaking Pool and Kids’ Pool with “beach entry,” the mountainside swimming option is a beautifully appointed facility. Complete with an outdoor hot tub and fire pit with views of Peak 8, the après ski stop is perfect for soothing aching muscles in the sauna or taking a dip in the tranquil waters overlooking the mountain.
For even more relaxation and rejuvenation, the three private massage rooms in the Rejuvenation Center are a welcome addition to One Ski Hill Place. With access to the Aquatics Center, the steam room and sauna are steps away after a sports massage or Blue River Stone massage from the talented therapists at the resort.
Stunning mountain-side views from the soaring windows of the studio to four-bedroom accommodations are great for everything from romantic getaways to family reunions. The modern interiors and sustainable programs promoted by RockResorts make for a forerunner of the Breckenridge area in both environmentally sound practices and luxury lodgings. Programs such as Water on the Rocks, which incorporates in-room purified water served in re-useable glass containers, eliminate a substantial plastic discard and is a universal RockResort practice.
From the Italian tile in the bathrooms to the solid rafters of the condos, the sleek finishes and attention to detail are exquisite at One Ski Hill Place. Spacious living and dining areas complete with granite countertops, fireplaces, and Blu-Ray players make for a luxury experience that won’t be soon forgotten. Balconies open to the mountains from every unit, so whether enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or browsing the internet on the available Wi-Fi, the sanctuary of One Ski Hill Place is a plush luxury retreat overlooking Peak 8 or the Continental Divide.
