A new luxury brand will be introduced to Steamboat Springs this winter, dubbed the St. Cloud Mountain Club. Those with the means and desire for a true pampering will be treated to breakfast, lunch, cocktails and après ski meals. This will be the first of its kind in the Steamboat area and time will tell how successful this becomes.
Developer Jamie Temple of Momentum Steamboat, LLC. announced previously that they had entered the city planning process required to build the St. Cloud Resort and Spa near the base of the mountain. Temple now says that he will hold off on pursuing the lengthy process before the economy turns around from the current situation.
The St. Cloud Mountain Club however has no attachment to the proposed development other than to introduce the brand to the Steamboat market. The club will function on it’s own accord and is looking for an initial 25 members at $40,000 per membership. Besides meals and ambiance at the ski area base, members can expect parking, ski valet, ski storage and overnight boot drying.
The inside of the club will be designed with a plush-but-modern look and feel, a full bar including coffee drinks, flat screen televisions and even a children’s play area. A concierge is also on hand to help members with lift tickets, ski lessons and other activities.
