Sunbeam Estates

Hi, we are traveling in Jan and have looked at a home in Sunbeam Estates. I was wondering if that area is truely within walking distance to Main Street and is the ski shuttle as easy as it sounds for travel to the lifts?

If you go to:


and type in Klack Road, Breckenridge, Co

This will give you an idea of where it is. Sunbeam comprises Klack Rd, Sunbeam, Carter & Hermit Dr.

Walk to Main St- 10 minutes is my guess in the winter, more or less flat.

Ski Shuttle- there is a free shuttle stop over at the grey P that you see at the end of Sunbeam Dr (on the other side of Boreass Pass Rd).

There is also one just west of the intersection of Powder Ridge Rd and S. French St (the northern intersection that borders what shows Carter Park on the map). You can also use Google maps to move the yellow man onto the map and move around to give you a feel for the area.

Sounds like you are looking for a house that is close to town and lifts.

What you will run into is that Breck is a condo dominated area around the lifts and town minus a few small areas. One is Sunbeam (kinda of), the other is Westridge (but not really an easy walk back from town).

It basically gets down to a home that is a little bit further away from each area but the convenience of a nice large home (and most places in Sunbeam are nice) or going the condo/townhome route where you can get closer to the slopes/town.

If you are open to a condo or townhome, I can give suggestions but let me know how many people and/or rooms needed.
