The holidays are a time when families reunite to share family traditions and create lifelong memories. While some families stay close to home, others seek the excitement of travel. Fortunately, The Porches of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, combines the best of both worlds, offering a place for families to snuggle by the fire while having access to the best winter activities right at the base of the ski resort.
The Porches is the ideal gathering spot for the holiday season, offering family friendly amenities and a wealth of snowy activities in cozy, yet spacious residences at the base of Steamboat Ski Resort. With each residence boasting from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet, four- to five-bedrooms and bathrooms and the ability to comfortably sleep up to 14 people, The Porches creates an environment that lends itself to creating unforgettable celebrations for several generations. Each home has a gourmet kitchen and dining area, a game room and bunk room where the kids can be together as well as access to on-site amenities including a pool/hot tub, work-out facility and convenient access to some of the best outdoor family friendly activities anywhere. Steamboat Ski Resort recently won the top rated family ski program in the country. The Porches staff ensures an impeccable holiday experience from trimming the tree to baking the Christmas cookies!
“Every year, The Porches becomes the quintessential winter wonderland, creating the most remarkable holiday gatherings,” said Bruce Shugart, developer of The Porches. “We cater to every need of the family by turning the community into a holiday oasis from the décor to the festive sounds of the holiday season. Moreover, our residences provide ample space so everyone can have their own room while still being together in one home. We know that families need fantastic kitchens and dining areas for preparing holiday meals, a game room to have fun together and access to activities, shopping and dining options.”
Every year, The Porches hosts an annual holiday party at the amenities building, The Barn, which is fully catered and gathers the entire community for festive food, drinks and activities. They decorate a 16-foot Christmas tree and hang garland throughout The Barn. Moreover, the staff decorates all the trees on the property with over 700 strands of white lights making the property look like a winter wonderland.
A concierge housed in The Barn will coordinate a number of family activities and offers a robust kids program. In addition, they will make restaurant reservations, ski valet, pre-arrival grocery shopping and, of course, holiday decorating complete with stockings hung by the chimney with care. Residents and guests also benefit from year-round private shuttle service to and from the ski resort, as well as around town for shopping or dinner.
“We have hosted numerous holiday get togethers over the years with incredible results,” said Emilie Crider, Manager of Pinnacle Resort Management at The Porches. “Families have told us time and again that there is no place like The Porches to celebrate the holidays and we’re proud to say these guests keep coming back.”
