Our 'Blue Coyote' townhouse is named after Keystone's infamous wolf-like Blue Coyote that roams the wetlands around the Snake River. It is a VERY short walk to the Mountain House Lifts, but best of all...when you're the most tired, it is ski-in to the road in front of the Ironwood complex.
If Little Red Riding Hood walks directly to the Mountain House base area she walks just 240 yards through a skier parking lot to the lifts. It is a walk that should take less than 5 minutes. Keystone Ski School, rentals and dinning can all be found at the lower Mountain House.
'What big eyes you have...the better to see you with, my dear.' Staying home in the Blue Coyote is a cozy joy with soaring windows and vaulted ceilings where every room overlooks enchanting Snake River and Tenderfoot Mountain vistas. You are steps from the base of Schoolmarm (the longest green run in North America at 3.5 miles.) If you are wearing a bright red hood, you can be seen skiing down the mountain from the Ironwood Townhouses complex!
'What big ears you have...the better to hear you with, my dear.' The sounds of the Snake River rushing by can be heard from every room. The Snake runs about 20 yards from our back deck. Ironwood is a 14-unit, quiet townhouse complex that feels delightfully secluded despite the fact it is so close to both the Mountain House and River Run amenities.
'What big Hands You Have...the better to rub together in front of the fire, my dear.' Blue Coyote's guests can sit fireside on nippy nights. Or, guests can choose to take a dip in the private 8 person-hot tub to warm up under the falling snow and glistening stars. The private hot tub is located on the back deck overlooking the Snake River.
'What big teeth you have...the better to eat you with, my dear.' The Blue Coyote's kitchen is well-equipped with everything from Flour to a Fondue pot. However, some may rather eat at the world-acclaimed Keystone restaurants, like Alpenglow Stube, The Ranch, Snake River Saloon, Der Fondue Chessel or The Ski Tip Lodge. Each restaurant is a special and memorable experience.

About the owner: Our favorite activity is road biking...even better than skiing. Our puppies have made peace with the many animals in the forest, but they still haven't figured out that some animals just don't want to play. We have met the Blue Coyote on two memorable occasions. He is not just a storied beast...he is REAL. Sweet Pea, a 7-year old black Lab mix and Fizzy, a 16-year old a Golden Retriever mix, first met the Blue Coyote on Granny's Trail, near our condo...very fitting.
Why the Owner Chose Mountain House, Ironwood: This property fits us perfectly mostly because it is big enough to live in year round without being crowded. Secondly, the convenience to the ski mountain is perfect. And, the Snake River and the bike path are right outside our door! It is our heaven.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: Surprisingly, in the 12+ years of skiing in CO, we rarely venture out to ski Breck nor Vail because it's just too perfect to walk out our door to the lifts. It's pretty great to come in for lunch and take a quick nap before skiing the afternoon away.
