Top Ski Home Amenities

Are you considering turning your Sunday River ski home into the ultimate alpine retreat? Whether you’re considering making your place a rental property or just want to enjoy premier mountain living, adding the right amenities can transform your property into a haven of luxury and comfort. Here’s a curated list of must-have amenities that will elevate your ski home experience to new heights:

  1. Ski-in, Ski-out Access: Imagine waking up in the morning, stepping outside, and gliding directly onto the slopes. Ski-in, ski-out access not only adds convenience but also enhances the overall ski home experience. Though this isn’t an amenity you can “add,” it can certainly be a priority when planning to buy property at Sunday River. 
  2. Hot Tub or Sauna: After a day of carving sweet turns, there’s nothing quite like soaking in a hot tub or unwinding in a sauna. These amenities provide relaxation and relief for tired muscles, making them essential additions to any ski home.
  3. Boot and Gear Room: Keep your ski equipment organized and readily accessible with a dedicated boot and gear room. Install boot dryers, racks for skis and snowboards, and ample storage space to streamline your ski routine.
  4. Fireplace: A cozy fireplace is the heart of any ski home. It not only provides warmth but also creates a welcoming ambiance for après-ski gatherings with family and friends. If you don’t have a chimney, this can be a ventless propane fireplace, or even an electric heater with the fireplace look.
  5. Gourmet Kitchen: Elevate your culinary experience with a gourmet kitchen equipped with high-end appliances and ample counter space. Prepare hearty meals to fuel your adventures on the slopes or host memorable dinner parties with ease.
  6. Outdoor Living Space: Embrace the breathtaking mountain views and fresh alpine air from the comfort of your outdoor living space. Whether it’s a spacious deck or a cozy patio, create an inviting environment for outdoor dining, relaxation, and entertainment.
  7. Home Theater: Wind down after a day on the mountain with a home theater or media room. Enjoy movie nights with loved ones or catch up on your favorite TV shows in the comfort of your own ski home.
  8. Game Room: Keep the fun going off the slopes with a game room equipped with pool tables, foosball, or a ping pong table. Challenge your friends to friendly competitions and create lasting memories together.
  9. Fitness Center: Stay active and energized with a private fitness center or exercise room. Incorporate workout equipment and yoga space to maintain your fitness routine while enjoying the mountain lifestyle.
  10. Concierge Services: If you’re planning to enter the short-term rental game, enhance your ski home experience with personalized concierge services. From booking ski lessons to arranging restaurant reservations and local excursions, let a dedicated concierge take care of the details for you.

Transform your ski home into the ultimate alpine retreat with these must-have amenities. Whether you’re seeking relaxation, adventure, or simply a place to reconnect with nature, investing in these features will ensure that your ski home becomes a cherished sanctuary for years to come. Welcome to the peak of mountain living!
