Ski condos can be a total bore: dated architecture, confusing layouts, worn furnishings. Not so with this new-build, all-condo resort. BlueSky Breckenridge’s sophisticated, spacious units range from one to four bedrooms, and the feel here is more boutique hotel than condo. BlueSky is as refreshing as a breath of Breckenridge’s rarefied mountain air.
Bed and Bath
All of the uniquely decorated units feature gas fireplaces and full kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. Multi-bedroom units are laid out well, with bedrooms far enough apart for privacy. Expect modern Rocky Mountain style, with lots of leather, stone and nature-themed art.
At the base of the Snowflake Lift, guests have hiking access in summer and ski-in, ski-out access to Breckenridge Resort’s 2,358 powdery acres in the winter. After a day on the mountain, the year-round pool and its three steamy jetted hot tubs are great for warming up (or cooling off). It’s only a five-minute walk or a free shuttle ride to Breckenridge’s bustling Main Street, which is lined with restaurants, bars and shops. An adventure center (guided hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing), a winter ski concierge and a full-service spa that draws a local crowd round out the perks and help BlueSky redefine the ski resort condo.
In the Area
The Spa at Breckenridge is a full-service day spa (also open to non–hotel guests) that offers a range of treatments, from manicures to massage, designed to relax the mind and body. Food Hedz, the official catering company of BlueSky Breckenridge, can do private catered meals upon request. If you want to stay in and enjoy a relaxed dinner in the comfort of your condo (without spending the day cooking), it’s a great option. Breckenridge’s Main Street is packed with dining options, but Kenosha Steakhouse is one of the best, with one of the few outdoor patios in town and lots of local brews on tap. For something more casual try Downstairs at Eric’s, which has long been revered for its satisfying pub grub. For a serious adrenaline rush, go for a ride down the SuperSlide, which is part of the Peak 8 Fun Park. The luge-style course is Breck’s most celebrated warm weather attraction. The park also has a big-air trampoline, a climbing wall and a mountain-bike park.
How to Get There
We stayed in 604S, a spacious 2 bedroom condo. The condo had everything we needed to cook for the week. We had an additional family over for dinner (dining table seats 6 and there are 3 bar stools) and we were all comfortable. There are hooks for ski clothing, a coat closet and bench when you walk in. There are two large bathrooms and a large master. The living room furniture is quite comfy, seats 6 total. The fireplace is gas and puts out a ton of heat. On the subject of heat, the condo is heated by radiant heat through the floors. We kept the heat turned all the way down. The condo was at times a little too warm so we just opened a few windows. The views are beautiful, mostly looking at other condos, but you can see the Snowflake lift, which is the lift you take to get up the mountain. One of the nicest features is the way Bluesky/Charter Sports stores your equipment. Downstairs in the same building (never have to go outside) is Charter Sports. This is where you can rent equipment. Across the hall is a locker room where you store your boots when not skiiing. You have access to a combination lock locker and then you just leave your boots on the boot racks, which are also warmer racks. Your skis and poles are stored on racks just outside the Charter Sports. When you came down the mountain you load your skis and poles on the racks, they lock them up at night and bring them out in the morning. So easy! The Snowflake lift is just a few feet from Charter Sports. We’ve done ski in ski out before and this is by far the best way to do it. No carrying your equipment back to your room! There is a commentary shuttle available to take you around town. Just call them and they pick you up from your location in minutes. The staff was very friendly. The condo was very quiet. We rarely heard any noise outside our room. It’s extremely well built.
In addition to skiiing we experienced dog sledding through Good Times Sports. Highly recommend.
The only thing we wish 604S would change is to put a larger TV in the family room.
Our group comes to NA every year in January/February to escape the heat in Queensland and go skiing. Since the Epic pass was introduced we usually go to Vail first for 10 days and then try out one of the other resorts for another 10 days. This year it was Breckenridge for the first time, so we had no prior knowledge of the accommodation. I think we lucked out with Blue Sky. It is beautifully designed on the side of a hill, with boot and ski lockers on the ground floor and a 20 metre walk to the Snow Flake chairlift. Our apartment is very spacious, with 2 comfortable bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and plenty of hanging space and drawer space. The whole apartment is heated with underfloor heating. Everything is just right for a comfortable ski holiday.
Great location! Very convenient for ski in/ski out! Charter sports, lift ticket office, and free ski storage are all right in the building! Easy walk to town. Heated garage was helpful. The shuttle service was incredibly helpful and convenient.
If I could give BlueSky 10 stars, I would. This lodge is a gem! I’m not sure I can list all the things that make it great, but I’ll try.
1. Location! The lodge is located at the base of the snowflake lift so you can ski in-ski out.
2. Shuttle service-the lodge provides an amazing private shuttle service to town and back. They will come and pick you up whenever you call!
3. In house spa
4. Secure and indoor Parking garage
5. Ski rentals on the ground floor
6. Workout facilities with three hot tubs and a pool
7. Fresh cookies on the weekend in the lobby
8. Beautiful units with kitchens and daily cleaning service.
Fantastic place to stay!
What a beautiful facility. We came to Breckinridge for a 5-day visit that ended on Christmas Eve. Our room (402) was great with a great view of the slope and ski lift. There is a ski lift is right outside the door and ski rental and storage on premises. I had a great massage at the spa. There is also free shuttle service into town.
