Resort on Peak 8 opens to redefine ‘ski in, ski out’

BRECKENRIDGE – The large structure under construction for two years at the Peak 8 base area recently opened as one of Summit County’s most elegant resorts.

One Ski Hill Place offers guests a one-of-a-kind, two-lane bowling alley designed to look like a mine shaft. It’s also one of few local lodging centers to offer air conditioning in all its rooms.

“It raises the bar for lodging, hospitality and level of service,” said Jeff Moore, a broker for the resort. “It’s exceeded my expectations in terms of final product.”

A mining theme runs consistently from concierge to elevators and rooms in the roughly 250,000 square foot resort. The sometimes unexpected accents separate One Ski Hill Place from other lodging experiences for an overall sense of high-class luxury blended with historic Breckenridge charm.

“It really does incorporate kind of an organic feeling, bringing the outside in,” general manager Kate Grattan said.

Of the resort’s 88 total one-to-four-bedroom units, 59 are under contract. Moore said they range in price from $665,000 to $2.5 million.

He said it is believed to be the only resort in the world offering ski-in, ski-out access to four lifts.

“This is the real deal,” Moore said.

Grattan said people are already planning which units they want during the next Winter Dew Tour, as many of them offer an excellent view of the mountain’s halfpipe.

And if you’re not one of the people fortunate to stay there as a guest, the Ski Hill Grill and T-Bar are to offer the services previously available at the Bergenhof – which closed after the last ski season.

Guests at One Ski Hill Place may enjoy two media rooms with huge flatscreens and surround sound, as well as a game room with a pool table. Room service is offered in all of these, so snacks or cocktails are just about always available.

There are indoor and outdoor hot tubs along with two pools, a steam room and a sauna. The pools are next to many large glass windows, so swimmers can watch the action on the slopes even in the dead of winter.

Development plans call for up to four more buildings to be added on either side of the resort, which is a few steps away from the BreckConnect Gondola.

The resort is part of Rock Resorts, which also include the Arabelle at Vail Square and the Hotel Jerome in Aspen.

Grattan said the public is welcome to stop by One Ski Hill Place for a tour. A grand-opening event is planned once the ski season kicks off.
