This thread is to ascertain what interest there might be in having an "EpicSki" house in the Vail area, available for use on a nightly basis.
Some of you are familiar with the place I was renting last season in Wildridge, up the hill on the North side of Avon. It is a rather large, spacious place, furnished, with incredible views of Beaver Creek. It has 5 bedrooms, with 5 full baths (each room has a pvt full bath). it is about 10 minutes from Beaver Creek, and about 20 minutes from Vail (no bus service near the house).
The owners and I are discussing the rental for this coming season, and I am trying to determine if this is a viable proposition or not. I am considering renting the entire place (last year I only rented a room, with full use of the entire premises), having 1 other full time roomate, and having 3 rooms available for rent to visiting EpicSki members on a nightly basis.
2 of the rooms will have a double bed, 1 room has 2 singles. Rent would be charged by the room, per night, no added utilities, with full access of the common area (big screen TV, fully equipped huge kitchen, full sized washer/dryer, possible ski tuning area in heated garage, etc).
The cost per night will be approx $75 per room, regardless of the number of people (max 2 per room). This is only an estimate, as I'm still negotiating the actual rent amount with the owners. I am NOT looking for this to be a party pad, but rather a reasonably quiet rest spot after a day of serious skiing! This is not some deal to subsidize my rent, but rather to stay in a very nice place and have fun people stay as well.
If anyone thinks this is of interest, drop a note on this thread! No obligations, just whether there is enough interest for me not to get beat up for the huge rent the entire place will go for.
