For those ooooohing and ahhhhing over my latest photos from the place I’m staying at in Colorado, believe it or not I’m enjoying these mountain views from the comfort of my condo for roughly the same price you’d pay for a Super 8 motel.
The strategy is simple:
1. Pick a ski town in Colorado with majestic views you could admire even from a gas station.
2. ONLY GO OFF-SEASON. For ski towns with lakes I reckon that means winter and summer.
3. Find the cheapest condo (but with good reviews) via Hotels.com or Expedia. The benefit is that I can earn rewards and get a free night, which saves me $100+ after every tenth hotel stay I book.
