Galliwest has been extensively remodeled (completion November, 2010) and enlarged, making it the one of the larger private homes with ski-in-ski-out access available for rent in Snowmass (6 bedroom, 5.5 baths + powder rm, not counting the attached caretaker unit). It is in Woodrun I, the first and most prestigious of the on-the-mountain private housing areas in Snowmass. Snowmass is the largest and most popular mountain in the 4-mountain Aspen complex. Galliwest is located on Snowmass mountain with incredible ski in/out access and mountain/valley views. The house retains a nice ski chalet feel while also having a new modern look from the 2010 remodel. All fixtures, appliances, entertainment systems and bathrooms are new in the house along with modern furniture etc. In November 2013 we installed a brand new 8 person outdoor hot tub!
An elevator in the stairwell rises from the 2-car garage and mudroom/ski storage area on the first floor to the 3 upper floors. On the 2nd and 3rd floors, there are 4 large front master bedrooms, with king sized beds, flat screen televisions, en suite bathrooms, and sweeping valley views. Two of them open onto balconies or decks. Two have 2-person hot tubs in the bath. Two have large walk-in showers. Two small back bedrooms, one with two twin beds, one with a queen and a twin, are most often occupied by children or young adults.
The living-dining area on the 4th floor opens onto large front and back decks. A large fully equipped kitchen that invites multi-cook meal preparation communicates with a dining area with a long table seating 12-14. The living area is surrounded by large windows, high ceilings, and sweeping views.

There is a large laundry area on the first bedroom floor, with a laundry chute down from the 3rd flr. There is no outdoor hot tub, but 2 indoor private jet tubs in the master bedrooms.
