Lots of problems with Gold Point. First, the construction. These condos were obviously built in the 1980's and there is absolutely no interior insulation. We could hear every footstep and conversation of our neighbors and when they flushed a toilet it sounded like a waterfall coming through our unit, enough to wake you up in the middle of the night. Second, the maintenance. Our outdoor light by the entrance was broken (not a burned out bulb but a photo cell problem) and despite the fact that we reported it the second day there, it was never repaired. Given the hard-packed snow and ice around the entrance this was a serious safety hazard. Finally, the elevation. Gold Point is about 1,000 feet higher than Breckenridge and that exacerbates the altitude sickness problem for people who live near sea level. We spent two nights in Denver before coming to Breckenridge and still had problems acclimating. BTW, there is no way you want to stay at Gold Point in the ski season without a 4x4 vehicle. Boreas Pass Road is not for the faint hearted, even in a Jeep.
On the positive side, the management is friendly and they seemed to want to provide a good vacation experience. But they just can't, given the age of the facilities.
