A growing trend is Steamboat Springs is the ability to join a ski in - ski out social club. The advantages are apparent. You drive close to the base with out a need to jump on a shuttle and you have mountain storage for skis, boots, ans all your accessories plus a warm place to put those boots on not the Meadows parking lot. A few options are St. Cloud Social Club with member programs beginning at $40,000 with three years of valet parking available to you or the Cloud Nine membership which double in price, but has a life time of valet parking. After 25 years you receive your initial fee back - equity membership. The cost to be a member is about $3,000 per year. The owners club is located near teh very popular Slopeside Grill. There is a complimentary breakfast, kid's area with all the videos they would want and of course an ambiance that tired skiers gathering for lunch and cocktails crave after a great powder day. There are 230 memberships available and each member has their own locker. Prices subject to change after the 25 founder memberships are sold - currently 15 have sold.
The not yet opened ski in ski out club at One Steamboat Place has the promise of grandiose for all who want the pampered lifestyle of - "everything you can imagine", including washing your car while you are swishing your care free day away. They plan to be open by 2009 - 2010 ski seasons.
Another idea for ski in ski out is ownership at the Steamboat Grand or Christie Club.
The Steamboat Grand has 1/8 and 1/4 ownership opportunities that would give you year round privileges there. They start at $47,500.00. to own a condo there. They have an owner’s club right at the base area next to the Sheraton pool with a fireplace and lockers, plus ski storage. You also get to use the pool, workout facilities, underground parking, and members lounge at the Grand Hotel - great for birthday parties! You may never need your weeks as a place to stay, so you could put them in the rental pool for income. We have seen that placing units in the rental pool usually pays the amount for the yearly HOA dues. This also gives you the ability to sell the unit in time.
The Christie Club has a social club however it is full, but there is the ability to buy a fractional condo there beginning at $109,000.00 and have it work like the Grand.
Social Clubs and ski in ski out amenities are a warm welcome to the cold slopes. Call me, if you would like additional information or idea for membership/ownership in beautiful Steamboat Springs. It’s snowing like crazy today - wish you were here....
