“Rock solid winner!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We booked One Ski Hill Place after reading numerous Tripadvisor reviews and were EXTREMELY pleased with our choice. The main point I would like to make is, although this property is under the ownership of Rock Resorts, it is not quite at a resort level YET. Give it a little time, folks - it's clearly evolving into a TOP NOTCH location for families who desire the ultimate ski-in, ski-out location. It is NOT a Ritz or ultimate 5 star luxury hotel BUT what it lacks in frills, it delivers in quality, convenience and service.

Note: This hotel is in the first phase of its build out which would explain why some of the facilities are still developing. Read about the restaurant later. Trust me, it's all good!

Location:
Peak 8 has all the amenities of a typical ski village BUT it lacks the total crowd aspect of most places of this caliber. Reason? No major parking here. SCORE! Most folks shuttle in or are staying at properties nearby. You arrive, check in, walk to the nearby ski rental (you can rent your stuff the afternoon before), ski valets will take your stuff back to your hotel ski locker, walk for nearby tickets, reserve the nursery for your little ones, walk to lessons. Super easy - and good thing because the altitude will KILL YOU ON THE FIRST DAY! (read up on altitude...)

Even in the mornings before lessons, there were no crowds. You could easily walk up and arrange for lessons & tickets without a mob scene. Would it be better if the front desk could arrange for all this stuff, well- yes, but I gather the company has not yet established this relationship yet. I would definitely like to see this hotel arrange for this at a future time. For now, it's fine. You can also obtain your tickets from the lessons desk - just an fyi...

Conditions:
I have been skiing all my life on all sorts of mountains, terrain, etc.... but I must say that Breck had the MOST impressive array of trails for intermediate to advanced skiers. It was akin to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen area with the mountain peaks so spread out, yet intertwined. Talk about a winter wonderland? I'm hooked and can't wait to return!

It snowed almost every day during our 3rd week in March. It continued to dump after we left. March is definitely a winner month to come due to the altitude and base snow.

Quick note on Peak 8 to Peak 7:
You can take the Colorado Chair to the top (well almost top) and then use Columbine to ski over to Peak 7. Boarders will have to schlepp it but it was pretty quick to cross on skis. Peak 7 has some nice quiet runs that are perfect for your afternoon, just touring the mountain and enjoying the views. Not as steep as Peak 8 and longer runs. There is a nice chair there - although a little wait, not long since it is a 6 person! There is also lodging at Peak 7 and a restaurant. Didn't check that out this time. Looked nice.

To get back to Peak 8, there is a lower cross-over that you can take. The trail map shows 'Forget-me-not' but the signage said 'to peak 8', 'to peak 9' and so on. You can also take the connecting gondola back and forth from Peak 8 to Peak 7 and vice versa. This might be a better option for boarders.

Adult Beginners:
We had one family member who switched from snowboard to skiing. Although the lessons are expensive, they are well worth the money. The private lessons were 3 hours long and cost about $400.00. They had one bunny slope with a magic carpet which is fine for very first time learners. The next step up is the magic carpet two person chair with a regular easy off. The green trails are a little steep for beginners but, with a teacher, the trails would be fine. I just mention this because this is not a rookie mountain. I don't know why it has the reputation of a beginner place. Maybe Peak 9 is better suited for the beginner set? I mean, hey, you start at 9,000 feet so, yet, you've got to expect some vertical drop!

Hotel:
Reservations were online and were top notch in terms of follow up and access to a concierge for any questions you may have. They will be happy to reserve transport, tours, high chairs, pack n plays, special requests, etc... Check in was a breeze - beautiful entrance. Where are the crowds? That is the question we kept asking ourselves but then after a few day we felt pampered to have found this hidden gem amidst a very bustling ski village scene!

Rooms:
We booked a 3 bedroom / 3 bath and everything was top notch. Most of the units are private condos and are relatively new. CLEAN! CLEAN! CLEAN! We're super picky, especially with a Granddaughter in tow and the rooms were spotless! Full kitchen for cooking and NEVER have I had better quality pots and pans. We ate breakfast and lunch in and most dinners out. On the first night we ate at the downstairs restaurant and ordered first breakfast from room service. The room service actually arrived within a half hour - WOW! This place is really working on their services.

Maids were very thorough with bedding, towels and making sure the units were staying spotless. The evening turn down service is great - just make sure you don't leave your privacy sign up on your room because they really respect this.

Rooms were very quiet - only complaint for us was that we overlooked the loading dock area and it was a little noisy on garbage pick up days. Not a deal breaker - we were in in the third floor near the street. In room humidifiers were going non stop! We're from Florida so the humidity is a BIG problem for us. If you have allergies to down, be sure to request the non-down comforters. Otherwise, be prepared for crisp white European bedding luxury!

Restaurant / Lounge:
Again, we are like.... 'Where are the people?' It was like having a private resort to yourself! We ate at the restaurant a few times and although the menu is limited, the selections are very good - almost home style - and that was comforting as well. The wait staff are extremely friendly and eager to please. The staff explained that the restaurant was meant to be the owner's wine lounge, which accounts for the small room / design. After the build out, I'm sure they will expand on the restaurant / options.

Altitude:
Take it easy the first day or so and limit your alcohol consumption. All of us experienced headaches, trouble sleeping, light headedness, etc.... If you can spread your skiing out over 4 days, please do it. You won't feel normal until day 3. Drink tons of water. The restaurants are very good to make sure to fill your water glass at all times. There are also ample flavored water stations in the lobby and inside the ski lockers. Wow! Loved the iced strawberry water before hitting the slopes!

Pool:
Very impressive! There was a large, very well thought out pool feature. Outdoor hot tub was larger than most and the gas fireplace feature was super cool! Inside had 3 pools so adults could easily separate from kids. Super comfy lounges were spread about and the staff kept towels stocked and pool area tidy at all times. Pool area is also a convenient lookout to the bunny slope above. You might catch a glimpse of your little ones from there.

Gym:
Didn't get to use it but they had a decent sized gym room with all the usual goodies. Gym overlooked the slopes so you can feel like you are part of the active set during your workout!

Spa:
There were limited services on site. We didn't book anything but I'm sure you could grab a decent massage after hitting the slopes. Again, I'm sure Rock Resorts will build out a more impressive spa once the area is developed. Don't book here if you are coming for the spa. You are coming to ski! If you want more spa services, book something in town.

Shuttle / Town:
Breckenridge has a delightful, year round town. There are numerous residents so there is an abundance of normal services like: supermarket, liquor stores, medical clinic, restaurants, churches, stores, boutiques..... Call down from your room for the shuttle and you might have to wait 5 minutes or so in the heated lobby. On your return, call the number they give you and they will pick you up near your stop. They don't charge for the shuttle but the tip basket was on board and the driver appreciated that.

Room for improvement:
Not a big deal but I thought that if the management could arrange for a nightly wine and cheese mixer in the lobby, it would be a huge PLUS. Maybe milk, cookies and story time for the little ones? This is a FAMILY place and it would be nice for management to utilize the large lobby / sales area apres ski.

Ski locker was a little crowed for all of us. Would be nice to have two lockers. Also, the locks were a little fussy to operate. Could be better. Ski valet guys were super nice. They were not there all the time but having them take the stuff back to the shop after our last day more than made up for it!

So...this fussy reviewer gives 5 STARS to this amazing home away from home. Where else can you walk out the door, choose from 4 different chair lifts. Pop back in for some hot chocolate or meet your family at the base? It's all so easy and PRIVATE. Oh, and I love the rock shaped soaps in the bath. Congratulations, Rock Resorts. This place is a rock solid winner!

Room Tip: Avoid the street-side rooms, if possible.

Hotel itself was immaculate. Entire staff was extremely friendly & helpful. Located directly on the slopes and lifts - have ski valets that are helpful but not always in locker room to help with skis or boots. Unlike hotels in aspen or telluride, the locker room does not provide boot dryers or personalized service.

Room Tip: Odd number rooms face the slope - even number rooms face the mountains

Just got back from Breckenridge. Stayed 4 nights at One Ski Hill. I can't say enough about this place. The room was a 2 bedroom Condo and it was spectacular. The full kitchen was wonderful and since we were steps from the lifts it was very easy to come back to the room for a quick bite. A guest locker is given to each houseguest on the slopeside floor where all of your gear is stored each night. The ski valets were awesome!! They helped the kids get geared up and brought the skis right next to the lifts for ultimate convenience. They celebrated with us each day as our children ( 9 & 6) came off the slopes bragging about the new "black diamond" they conquered. Brock, one of the valets, truly stood out as outstanding!
I didn't want to leave and can't wait to get back!
Dining tip..... Try the Crepe cart on main street.... ridiculously good

Everything was amazing! The room we had was breathtaking and full of amenities. We stayed in a 3-bedroom suite where everything was top notch. It's also literally on the mountain making it super easy to ski in and ski out. This is easily the best hotel in Breck.

We have NO idea why this is not the No. 1 listing on TripAdvisor, but we hope it changes!! Also, one step down, but almost every bit as nice, is Crystal Peak Lodge (a little quieter, but gorgeous rooms, too.)
What more would you want from a fabulous ski vacation??? The amenities are top notch; the rooms are absolutely modern and beautiful; the staff is so friendly and helpful; the shuttle is superb; and best of all, it is TRULY ski-in/ski-out, WITHOUT ANY "schlepping"!!!!! Oh, and did I mention the skiing was fantastic, and the town is adorable with delicious restaurants?
GREAT mountain!! No wonder is was voted best ski mountain in 2012. Do NOT miss this experience!! We'll be back . . .

Stayed with the family in a suite with 2 bed and 2 bath with a large living area with full kitchen and fireplace with a great view. The hot tub and exercise facilities were excellent as well as the in house bowling alley that you can rent out. Breakfast was also quite good downstairs at the grill as well as room service. Excellent location right next to the mountain and shuttle buses for quick trips to Main Street. Overall good experience for a higher end ski lodge.
