Frequently Asked Questions
We are looking for a ski-in/ski-out home. Is that Our Mountain Honey?
Yes! The ability to ski green runs and board a chair lift is required to ski-in/ski-out, however. Folks in their first couple of days of ski school will need to take a five minute drive to the base of Peak 9 or the Peak 8 gondola parking lot to get to ski school. The absolute fastest way to do a ski school drop off is to bring two adults to drop the kids off at Peak 9 ski school- one to run the kids in and the other to wait with the car. Adults attending ski school can be dropped off or can walk ten minutes down the road to the nearest free bus stop.
How do folks who know how to ski get to the slopes?
Take a one minute walk across the street and two houses down to a trailhead of the lower Four O’Clock Ski run. Ski down to the Snowflake Lift. Ride the Snowflake lift to the top, and then ski down the “Twister” green run to the base of Peak 8 and all that Breckenridge Ski Resort has to offer. All Peaks can be accessed from Peak 8. You can check out a trail map here (note- notoriously slow to load): http://www.breckenridge.com/
We are looking for a home in the heart of town. Is that Our Mountain Honey?
No, we are mountain side in a secluded woodsy location.
How close are you to town?
Summertime walking time to Main Street is 15 minutes down and 20 minutes back up if we are hustling. More leisurely paces take a little longer. Wintertime walking takes a little longer. Drive time to the Dredge Lot or the F Lot parking areas is three minutes down the hill, drive time to Main street is five minutes. Drive time to the City Market grocery store is five minutes.
What is the nearest bus stop for the free Summit Stage bus?
There are talks of bringing the bus further up the mountain, but as of now, the nearest bus stop is a seven minute walk down the road, in the parking lot for the Blue Sky Condominiums, Charter Sports, and the Snowflake lift.
What is included with the house?
Free Wifi. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for you to work your magic. Help yourself to any of the oils, vinegars, spices, and condiments in the fridge and pantry. All bathrooms include shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for your use. Laundry detergent, dishwasher soap and dishwashing liquid are included. All bed linens, bath towels, and jacuzzi towels are included. The house is fully stocked with books, games, DVDs, cable TV, and Roku boxes for your entertainment.
Do you offer ski rentals?
We do not, although we are a ten minute walk or two minute drive to a ski rental shop- Charter Sports, the Blue Sky Breckenridge location: http://www.chartersports.com/ . We are a 5-10 minute drive to many others shops, including Alpine Sports, Christy Sports, and Blue River Sports. However, for convenience we always use Charter Sports.
Are there any discounts we can take advantage of?
Occasionally we will run last minute specials, but all advance bookings are priced at a standard seasonal rate.
Are any lift passes included?
No lift passes are included. However, the sooner you book your lift passes, the less expensive they are. Get your Epic 4 or 7 day pass here! http://www.snow.com/epic-pass.
