Story
Steamboat Springs, Colorado… Luxury ski vacations should offer guests uninterrupted relaxation. Yet, vacationers to bustling ski areas may find they spend an enormous amount of their valuable R&R time on the phone on hold or standing in line. They wait in line for their rental gear, at the checkout of the crowded grocery store, at the lift ticket window and the ski school office. At the end of a day of skiing, they stand in line to wait for the shuttle bus, then they endure a dinner wait at their favorite restaurant. Moving Mountains in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, eliminates excess effort and wasted time for its guests, offering the area’s most exclusive vacation home rentals paired up with unique hospitality known for exceeding guest expectations. Guests of Moving Mountains find they don’t have to lift a finger or waste a moment, making their vacation time all the more memorable. This unique combination of five-star vacation home accommodations and service is what Moving Mountains attributes to its strong numbers.

This winter Moving Mountains’ length of stay average has increased 3 percent to 6.1 nights. Additionally, its average daily rate for bookings in February improved by more than 10 percent compared to last year, when Steamboat Springs boasted near record snowfall. “We are sold out for certain time periods in March,” reported Moving Mountains President Robin Craigen. “The winter season is finishing strong, with a surge of bookings since the record snowfall hit the headlines.” Steamboat Springs experienced a record-breaking one-day storm of 27 inches of snow in late February, followed by several smaller storms leaving four feet of snow in four days.
