“what a gem, great location!!”
This was our first stay in a rental home in steamboat springs and what a gem. We have been skiing in steamboat for several years and have been missing out. Black Bear was located down the road from Thunderhead lift and was a treat to begin and end our day at the lift versus the busy Gondola area. The home was beautiful and more than we could have asked for. We plan on staying here next year but in Black Bear and Brown Bear!!
Response from the manager We are sorry it took you a few years to find us but so glad you finally did! I wholeheartedly agree- there's nothing like the convenience of the Thunderhead Express chairlift just 1 minute from your door, and the convenience of the shuttle to take you down to the resort or in to town at your whim. This is one of our most popular homes, especially for larger groups that book both sides of this inner-connected duplex, so let us know early if you have some dates in mind for next winter.

“Moving Mountains Black Bear Chalet is Paradise”
We planned this family ski vacation at Steamboat so that our grandchildren could learn how to ski. The chalet and Moving Mountain services exceeded our expectations in every way. The Black Bear Chalet is beautiful, spacious, and so well designed--from the ski storage room--to the private elevator--to the 5 1/2 bathrooms--there was more than enough room for our children and grandchildren and us to relax and enjoy the gorgeous scenery outside our huge windows. Due to unexpected injuries, Papa and Grammy were not able to ski--but staying in the Black Bear Chalet made the non ski time so much more enjoyable. The Moving Mountains staff were so helpful and went out of their way to assist us---even sending over delicious cupcakes when they heard about our injuries. They quickly responded to all of our questions and made us feel so welcome. We are already talking about a return trip; everyone in our family so enjoyed the Chalet.
Response from the manager We are always sad to hear of injuries but glad yours did not ruin your stay. Steamboat is a great place for learning to ski and next year, they'll be ready to ski the whole mountain! We look forward to welcoming you back and making next year even better! Warm regards, Elisabeth Mullen Reservations Manager
Moving Mountains Chalets provides an unparalleled experience in luxury skiing. I have been unsuccessful trying to find their level of homes and services in Vail, Deer Valley, or aspen. We were a party of 10 (two couples and 6 kids). The home we stayed in was spectacular. But what made the experience over the top were Elisabeth, Robin and their staff. We took advantage of the Full Service Catered Package which I highly recommend. It is actually quite reasonable when you do the math. The two gentlemen who took care of us went above and beyond in every little detail. The meals were fantastic, the presentation was that of a fine restaurant, not that of a home cooked meal. The two times we tried the "better” restaurants in town, we were sorry we had not eaten back at the house. They would cook anything and everything that we, or the kids, could desire. The house was always clean in spite of the six monsters we had running around. They drove us everywhere and anywhere regardless of the time of day, and fulfilled any and all of the stupid request the kids could come up with - they were beyond amazing!
“Perfect family spot”
A very lovely home, with every possible amenity. Our entire family, from seven to eighty, was happy with their stay.
“Home and Service by Moving Mountain exceeded our expectations.”
We have a group of 8-12 friends that get together each year for a ski outing. Usually, try and go somewhere new each year. Have been challenged in years past in trying to get a nice place to stay, that accommodates everyone. Black Bear was a great set up and was very comfortable for the 9 guys we had this year. The Service provided by Moving Mountain was unbelievable! All travel requests and needs were met in a professional and timely manner.
“mardi gras in steamboat”
we had a wonderful time. the house was amazing and so was the staff. They were there for anything we needed and more. I could not have asked for anything. The house was amazing. we had 6 adults in our party and 7 kids and still had extra room. There were no wants with the house. from the hot tub, to the sauna to the pool table it was a perfect home--or should i say chalet. I would recommend this home and the full service to anyone. It is worth every penny and more.
“Steamboat, CO Ski Trip: Moving Mountains Black Bear Catered Chal”
Going in we wanted to see improvement since we had been at the same place last year and had some issues. Everything this year was beyond our highest expectations. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. The catering-- style, content, hospitality-- was really the relaxed yet indulgent luxury MM set out to provide. We could not have been more satisfied. The house: You'll not find a more spacious, comfortable backdrop for a mixed-family vacation. The layout provided lots of different areas to find a comfort zone after a day on the slopes. The bustling open kitchen became the core of the vacation and made all of us feel like we were part of one big happy family. In our hurried real lives this feeling is rare so this was special. The master BDR suite was huge and offered a private spot for massages, reading, etc, and its bath had a steam shower-- a great antidote for dry mountain air. The bunkroom w/its double queen/twin bunks was comfortable for kids or adults. One great feature was that the 3rd floor of this house opened up over the living room like a mezzanine. Here there was a complete desktop setup on a big table where all the kids gathered each day to listen to music, surf the web, check emails, etc. Everyone felt togetherness w/o too much togetherness. Location: This property was not ski in/out but was located close to an intermediate high-speed quad lift which let those with pre-purchased lift tickets avoid the walk to the Gondola from the base area drop off area. I even arranged for my kids to meet their instructor at the top in the a.m. rather than leaving them to wait around at the base for all the groups to form. This gave us an extra 30 minutes in the a.m. Only negative: Groups w/mixed schedules will need an extra vehicle/driver beyond the one provided in the full service package to make it all work w/o tension. This adds an extra $400-$420 per day to the cost. Bottom line: We will book the same trip/property for Jan. 2011 this summer
