Ski condo at the base of Copper Mountain -- walk from home to the chairlift!

COPPER MOUNTAIN, COLORADO
Our condo "Snow Bridge"  is located in the heart of Copper Mountain. In the winter, you can walk to the American Eagle Chairlift. In the summer, walk to the golf course. As we are located right on Ten-Mile Creek, you will hear the sounds of the river at night in the summer.

The amenities--Snow Bridge Condominium complex has a hot tub & sauna, located outdoors with mountain views. There is underground heated parking (no shoveling snow off the car).
 
The building--Snow Bridge is a small complex with a pizza parlor, liquor store, massage spa, and ski rental center on the first floor. There is an elevator to the second and third floors.
 
About the town: The town of Copper is in the resort area of Summit County, at an elevation of over 9000 feet. The air is crisp and cool, even in the summer. There is a lot of snow in the winter, but we have over 300 days of sun each year. So, with luck, it will snow all night and be sunny in the morning. There is a fire department, post office, recreation center, and medical center.
 
About Summit County--Within a short drive, there is skiing at over 6 great mountains: Loveland (30 minutes), A-Basin (20 minutes), Keystone (15), Breckenridge (25), Copper (0), and Vail (20). Steamboat is 90 minutes away and Aspen is 4 hours.
 
About the condo--The kitchen is stocked with spices, olive oils, and whatever else you may need to cook. You may enjoy our DVDs, games, puzzles, snow shoes, and skates. The master bedroom is in the loft and has a new king-size bed with views of the half-pipe and ski runs. My son's room has two sets of bunk-beds, also with new mattresses. The guest room has a new queen bed on the bottom and a full-size bed on top. There are two full bathrooms.

About Our Family

Our family is comprised of Skip, Jennifer, and our son, George. We have traded over 10 times with Intervac. Through Intervac, we have exchanged with friends in Ireland, Iceland, Canada, Scotland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Mexico,and Finland. We love Intervac.

My husband's parents took him on his first Intervac trade to London in the 1970s! We are very open to trading, and even if we do not list your country on our wish list, contact us. Airfare deals really tends to help us decide where to travel next.
 

Lifestyle

Winter--Our condo at Snow Bridge is fun in the winter -- there is no need to drive, park, or take the shuttle bus.  You can walk to the ski slopes from our door in 5 minutes. We have a red wagon to pull your skis, if you like. There are other great winter activities, too: sledding, skating, and snow shoeing. We have ice skates and snow shoes for you to use, while you visit. In the Winter of 2014, we received over 400 inches of snow in Summit County!

There are activities for kids, too. There are day-passes for the paddle boats, rock climbing walls, bungee jumping, and go-carts.
