Over the Edge in Steamboat

The Ski House of the Day is the Over the Edge Chalet in Steamboat, and "over the edge" (as well as "over the top") it is indeed!  This spectacular ski house has been voted (by Reuter's/Trip Advisor) as one of the top ten rental homes in North America (according to Moving Mountains) it's a special one!

Looking more like a grand hotel than a house, the massive, impressive, ski-in/ski-out home sits perched majestically on the mountain:

I love the way the living room looks like it is part of the outdoors with windows all around!   Those windows take full advantage of this perfect mountain setting, and the full wall ivory-white fireplace seems to blend in with the snow just outside:

The views from this beautiful kitchen are as dramatic as those granite counters:

And the huge round dining table nestled between a roaring fire and a gorgeous view is a sophisticated place for an apres-ski dinner:

The house has seven beautifully decorated bedrooms, and seven+ bathrooms -- it sleeps 16 people in 9,000 sf of luxury mountainside space!  And, there seems to be another fireplace everywhere I look!

Check out this cozy space for an intimate apres-ski glass of wine...

In addition to a home theater room, there's also a spectacular game room...(I could be pretty comfy sinking down into that soft leather sofa after a day on the slopes)...

...but this place takes the concept of "game room" way over the edge to an entirely different level...with a full basketball court -- right inside!

If there's any time left over after all that...there's a spectacular hot tub and gas fireplace on the roof-top deck:

Imagine star-gazing from the hot tub on the roof-top of this magnificent ski house with the snow falling on you! I love it!  Between the open sky and that open railing there's an endless view from this gorgeous spot.  It looks like the top of the world (...just be careful about going over the edge!).  Wow!
