East West Partners announced today the development of a new, all-electric, residential community at Steamboat Ski Resort: The Amble. Located adjacent to Steamboat’s redeveloped Steamboat Square, The Amble is the first new residential development in the base area in the last 15 years. The Amble will feature 42 for-sale, sustainable, modern residences, as well as amenities that cater to the outdoor-active lifestyle. Priority reservations for the purchase of a residence will begin on April 2.

“The Amble is not only the first new residential community in Steamboat’s base area in the last 15 years but is also the first project coming out of the ground since the completion of the ‘Full Steam Ahead’ transformation which has elevated Steamboat Ski Resort to one of the premier ski destinations in the world,” said Ryan Stone, managing partner for East West Partners. “We could not be more excited to build a home that celebrates Steamboat’s unique pace of life and takes an active role in being in the forefront of sustainable development in our community.” 

359 Design serves as architect of The Amble and Saunders Construction will be the general contractor. Construction of The Amble is anticipated to begin in Spring 2024 with completion slated for Spring 2026.

East West Partners has decades of experience creating dynamic, sustainable mountain resorts and vibrant urban communities. As the nation’s premier mountain resort developer, East West Partners masterminded the development of Beaver Creek Village and its iconic escalators back in the 1980s, as well as the recent $600M transformation of the Snowmass Base Village. As the developer selected to transform Steamboat Ski Resort’s base village, East West Partners has been proud to support Steamboat’s vision of enhancing the guest experience and creating what will continue to be one of the premier ski destinations in the world for many years to come. 

The Amble’s residences will offer diverse floor plans ranging in size from one- to four-plus-bedrooms and ranging in size from 948 to 3,036 square feet. Two curated finish packages are available – Hot Toddy or Sarsaparilla – both designed to make owners’ time spent indoors just as inspiring as the time spent outdoors. Each residence also features triple-pane windows, efficient insulation systems, induction cooktops and a water vapor fireplace to eliminate gas emissions. Pricing starts at $1.7 million.

Amenities at The Amble will include an outdoor, all-electric heated pool and spa; outdoor seating and grilling areas; fitness center; lobby and gathering spaces; game room; secure owner storage; underground, heated and secured parking; and outdoor activity lockers. 

A focus on sustainable development is one of the most notable aspects of The Amble. The building itself creates its own sustainable ecosystem through climate-responsive architecture, daylighting and natural ventilation. Its mechanical system is designed not only to be 100% electric but also to capture, retain and reuse rejected energy from the building systems. Through progressive mechanical design, the building’s rejected energy is used to supplement the domestic hot water and pool/spa heating as well as snowmelt systems. This setup cuts down on the amount of energy the building needs to operate and will allow it to operate with significantly lower energy usage than traditional building systems. In addition, The Amble will have the opportunity to operate net zero carbon through the constantly greening electrical grid and the opt-in Green Choice program. 

“We’ve designed a building with a progressively intelligent envelope and mechanical systems that look first to limit the loss of energy and then harness and upcycle as much energy as we can,” said Stone. 

The Amble is steps away from the new Steamboat Square featuring dining and retail, Skeeter’s rink, Steamboat Stage and a kid’s camp. Steamboat Ski Resort’s recent on-mountain improvements include 650 additional expert/advanced acres, new automated snowmaking technology, regraded Greenhorn Ranch learning center and the new Wild Blue Gondola – the longest and fastest 10-person gondola in North America. Downtown Steamboat Springs is just a 10-minute drive and Yampa Valley Regional Airport is just 30 minutes away and offers 16 nonstop flights from major airports across the country.

“The Amble is quite literally right in the center of the action for year-round mountain adventures in one of Colorado’s quintessential mountain communities,” added Stone.

Slifer Smith & Frampton is the listing brokerage for the property. Interested buyers should visit the website and set up an account to browse residences, get access to pre-purchase documents and participate in the Priority Reservation Purchase Process on April 2. Those with priority reservations will be able to go to contract starting on April 9.
