I have skied Steamboat Springs since the early 1980's. Timber Run Condominiums became my ideal lodging choice. I like its value. It seems to cost less than other lodging comparatively close to the gondola; but, one should always call ahead to check rates, deals, and availability.
In early November 2012 before the mountain was open, I visited the area just to see the ski village, tour the town, and go by Timber Run, where I planned to stay three months later.
As always the staff were friendly, and busily preparing the facility for another ski season.
Like most condos at 'the Boat', private individuals own Timber Run’s units. Many have added a unique touch to the decor in their 'second' home. The Condo sizes are two bedroom, three bedroom, and three-bedroom w/ loft, a combination that offers a nightly range of 4-10 pillows/unit. The complex’s cedar exterior has aged well since the 1980's, and based upon
recent Trip Advisor reviews, repeat bookings are common-place.
It is neither the biggest nor the newest complex near the base area, but Timber Run has all the après-ski amenities - exterior hot tubs, heated pool, tennis court [for summer], in-unit ski storage and boot heaters, and a clubhouse with private party facilities. Located a few blocks from the base area, Timber Run has its private shuttle waiting to promptly whisk guests to and from the gondola.
Timber Run seems to caters to ski clubs, families, and casual folks who love to ski. On past trips, I have met both Congressmen and a Hollywood film crew staying there; but demanding, high-maintenance guests would be happier elsewhere [probably to the relief of the staff].
Timber Run, like the town of Steamboat, is a people place. It is real. It reminds you of a familiar pair of leather gloves, that you keep using year after year. For family reasons, I skied Keystone and Beaver Creek the past five years; but, my heart will always be in Steamboat, where people can ski in jeans. It's like coming home.
