This ski-in / ski-out condo is ideally located, literally on the slopes, near the base of the Peachtree and Westwall lifts. If you want to be any closer to the slopes you'll have to sleep in a chairlift. You can soak in the outdoor hot tub while watching the skiers whoosh by, with the peak looming overhead. The unit has a huge wrap-around deck that runs along the side of the unit facing the slopes and the mountain, so you can stretch out in the sun and enjoy the views. Or, when it's snowing you can watch the peaceful scene from the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the unit. In summer, you have immediate access to the paths and bike trails.

Outside by the hot tub there's a grill and sauna. Inside, you will enjoy free WIFI. We have 1 king, 2 twins, 1 queen sofa-bed and 1 double sofa-bed, so you can sleep up to 8 people. There are two bathrooms with showers. The spotless, modern kitchen comes fully equipped. The main room has two sofas, a flat-screen TV and a fireplace. There's plenty of room for eating in our dining area, and you can enjoy some drinks on the counter stools or...did I mention the deck?
Your comfort and convenience are our number one priorities, and we are continually trying to enhance your experience. Recent upgrades include new leather couches, linens, TV, and decor. The most recent addition is a brand new, luxurious master bathroom!
We have a washer/dryer and dishwasher for your convenience. You can use our covered parking spot in the heated garage (with elevator), or you can take the free shuttle bus to town; there's a bus stop right outside the building. You can also walk a couple of blocks to Mountaineer Square.
If you've never been to the quaint town of Crested Butte, you'll love it. Stroll up and down the main street past Victorian buildings with local shops, art, music, and good food. There are some great fine dining spots in town, too.
In summer the outdoor activities are terrific. Stroll out of the condo and take the free Friday lift to the top of the mountain, and climb the short trail to the peak of Mt. Crested Butte if you dare. The mountain-biking is outrageous, including the world famous 401 trail. Crested Butte is also the official Wildflower Capital of Colorado, with the 2015 Wildflower Festival on July 13-19. You can also try the zip line course, which sends enthusiasts screaming through glades of aspen. There are several outdoor concert series that run weekly during the summer.
We are in the midst of some of the most beautiful and unspoiled mountains in Colorado, so take your time to explore them with anything from beautiful walks to extended backpacking adventures. Rafting, kayaking, golfing, fishing, you name it...it's all just outside your front door. Our summer rates are some of the best values mountainside.
Our unit is personally managed by James and Wendy (owners of CB Enterprises) who are renowned for their 24/7 above-and-beyond approach to helping each guest get the most out of her/his stay.
We love kids, so bring yours, but no smoking or pets....Read more

Gateway 303 tops the list of my favorite places to stay in the mountains. This was my first experience in Crested Butte and I can't say enough great things about the mountain, the condo, the town, and the overall quality of this trip.
The condo is perfectly situated between two lifts. Getting our tickets in the morning couldn't have been easier; you simply ski down, take a quick chair up, and make your way over to the ticket booth. The condo is accessible to many different lifts, making it possible to explore easy terrain or head over to fantastic powder and side-country.
From the moment we walked into Gateway 303, the details of logistics, where to find kitchenware, parking, etc. was easily laid out in a booklet provided by the owners. There are also great tips for places to eat and explore in downtown Crested Butte. The quality of the condo itself is unbeatable. Kitchen appliances are new and easy to use and there are countless pots, Tupperware, and utensils available. The master bedroom is beautiful, with a large bathroom and super comfortable bed, and I'm sure the other room is just as welcoming. I also appreciated the washer and dryer, as we all know ski trips produce quite a bit of laundry.
Lastly, the condo feels cozy and like a perfect little getaway in the mountains. The fireplace added to the 'mountain vacation' atmosphere and we loved how close the hot tub was to our door.
I highly recommend Gateway 303 as your ski vacation go-to. I wouldn't hesitate to book this vacation again next year.
