Stew and Linda Everad sampled homes throughout Summit County before unexpectedly purchasing a condominium with vast views of the slopes at Copper Mountain.After discovering the county several years back during a business trip, the Everads rented a home in Breckenridge for two seasons, another in Frisco for two years, then a third place at Copper Mountain for two years. They liked the last place, but the owner wanted to move back in, so it was back to square one, until everything fell into place.”We met a lady in an elevator,” Stew explained. “She said, we have a place you might like to rent.”They ended up buying the condo, spent some time remodeling and have been comfortable for the past three years.The Everads were so impressed with Colorado skiing that they sold a mountain home they owned at Loon Mountain in New Hampshire.”You can’t compare the weather in the Colorado mountains to the weather in the New England mountains,” he said.Why did you decide to buy at Copper?Besides having an offer that just fell into their laps, the Everads like the convenience of Copper.”It’s so nice to be able to walk to the slopes, it’s just wonderful,” Linda said, adding that she loves not having to worry about transportation.

What activities do you enjoy?”I have to ski 60 days a year or it doesn’t count,” Stew said, clearly illustrating his love for the sport.Copper Mountain’s Over the Hill Gang also provides a constant source of skiing buddies and social activities for the Everads.”In two weeks, I think we went to seven different social events,” he said. The couple also snowshoes and, in the summertime, enjoys hiking and exploring the county’s rec paths.How often do you visit?The Everads spend every January through April at their condo, as well as a month in the summer.They especially enjoy being in town for the Fourth of July.What’s your favorite season?It’s tough to beat the winter for skiing. In fact, Stew says he only skis on the East Coast “if he has to.” Linda says, it’s all about the warm, winter weather.”We go home from here and we’re freezing,” Linda said.But, the Everads have grown to love the Summit County summer as well.
