Property description

Winter or summer, Snowmass is truly 'Magic in the trees'. Our house is located off Faraway road, surrounded by the peaceful falling of snow (in winter) and fluttering of aspen leaves (Spring/summer/fall) through the Aspens and tall pines. My family spent many a vacation and several whole years in this unforgettable place!

The house could fit 2 families, or 3 couples. It has 3 levels:

Upstairs is kitchen and living area with large stone fireplace and 20 foot (7M) beamed ceilings, and outdoor deck.

Mid level:
- master bedroom with walk-in closet and private bath room with shower
- 2nd bedroom with 2 beds (can be combined), and second bath w/ tub/shower

Downstairs is a large bedroom has 2 singles and 2 bunks, and a third bath with tub/shower. Full Laundry facilities are downstairs.

In addition to skiing/boarding, there's an endless supply of activities in Aspen and Snowmass. Check links below for more info.

Recent remodel:
All flooring, baths, kitchen and paint were completely replaced in 2009. All new kitchen appliances, including 5 burner gas range and oven, dishwasher, and deluxe refrigerator. All bathrooms have new tile, flooring, baths, sinks and fixtures

What can you do on vacation here?
In Winter of course there's world-class downhill skiing, snow boarding, cross-country and back-country skiing.
In Summer, there's even more to do!!! Here's a taste of what we did this summer (with kids 9, 12, and 14):
- Tons of hiking &biking
- Aspen Rec Center: Ice rink, 3-story climbing wall, water park with 100meter water slide (Snowmass has rec cen with pool too).
- Visit the Glenwood Adventure park, with mile-long natural underground cave tour, bungee jumping, 'alpine sled' (like a personal racecar on roller coaster track - very cool!), Canyon swing, climbing wall, trapeeze trampolines, etc. etc. 45 min drive down the valley to Glenwood Springs.
- Whitewater rafting on the Roaring fork river. Even my wife had to admit, this was the best part of the trip!
- Rent a 'downhill mountain bike' for the thrill of your life: Take the gondola up (about $40/person/day) to Cafe Suzanne - with your bike -- Have an awesome hamburger, and then ride down the exciting trail to the village again - woohoo!
- Or, just hang out on the deck surrounded by the woods:
In summer, the back deck is quite possibly the most peaceful place on earth. You are completely surrounded by woods. Read a book, listen to music, or just zone out listening to the fluttering of Aspen leaves in the breeze! You won't get this experience in a condo!
Walk out the back deck to directly access the hiking trails:
- Powerline trail that takes you over to Elk Camp and the Government trail (that goes all the way from the Snowmass Village to Aspen).
- Tom Blake trail (Awesome for mountain biking with the kids - mostly traverses over soft ground, 1 creek crossing) traverses into Owl Creek and connects with the paved bike path.
The kids can explore the woods and build forts. It's heaven!

4wd recommended for driveway in winter.

Note: For just $1 High Mountain Taxi will pickup/deliver you to the slopes, or almost any location in Snowmass Village. Call 30 minutes before departure to arrange a pick up. Dial-A-Ride runs from 8:00am - 9:00pm, and 'late night' 1AM-2AM. (subsidised by City of Snowmass Village). (Buses and/or regular taxi rates apply for airport, Aspen, or other destinations).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1968

About: Hi, I'm Dave. Although I was born in Denver, CO, I grew up on the West coast. Before my family moved west, my Dad built this house in Snowmass in 1968. We spent many ski- and summer vacations and several entire seasons and years in this wonderful home. We completely remodeled a few years ago, under the expert guidance and brilliant design skill of my brother Jim, a licensed architect in California. I've got a family of my own now, and we've brought my 3 kids here on many memorable trips. Now you can enjoy living like a local, with the woods at your doorstep!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Snowmass is a special place. At our home, you are secluded in a private setting, you have the woods at your doorstep, and just moments from the slopes. You have the full alpine experience - winter or summer -- with all the comforts of home!
