This weeks criteria for “best buys”: The property has to be within walking distance to the slopes or ski in/ski out. It has to be at least 1,000 square feet and be priced under $400,000. Sound hard to find? I found quite a few available and they were located at Copper Mountain and Breckenridge.

The first best buy is located in a secluded location at Copper Mountain. You can ski or walk to the village center, which is only 300 yards away. This condo has plenty of sleeping room for everyone. It features two bedrooms, two baths and a large loft area for extra sleeping. Other features include vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace and a deck. At the end of the day enjoy a nice soak in the outdoor hot tub.

The condo is completely furnished, so all you need is your toothbrush. Tom Malmgren at Carbonate Real Estate offers this best buy for $379,000.

The next best buy is located in the Copper Mountain center village within steps to the American Eagle and American Flyer lifts. This top-floor condo is 1,274 square feet with two bedroom and two baths. One of the bedrooms can be locked off and rented separately from the rest of the property.

This is an amenity rich building that includes a fitness center, hot tub, ski lockers, underground parking and an elevator. This best buy is offered by Peter Woods with Real Estate at Copper Mountain for $350,000.

The last best buy is located in Breckenridge. This large 1,350-square-foot condo is located within walking distance to the Peak 9 lift and town … and the bus stops just outside the front door. This condo has been remodeled with new carpet and paint, wood and slate floors, granite countertops and a new gas fireplace. The condo is mostly furnished and includes a washer and dryer. Enjoy the natural sun light through the extra windows of this end unit. At the end of the day head over to the clubhouse and go for a swim in the pool, or just soak in the hot tub and relax in the spa. This “best buy” is offered by Mark Thomas of Paffrath and Thomas for $389,000.
