Why Snowmass Village: We 'fell in love' with Snowmass in 1969 and decided to purchase condo units at the Crestwood Condominium complex. Then we found the perfect property and decided to build our family vacation home on this property.
Our home is in the Ridge Run 2 sub division with access to tennis courts! The house was completed in 1999 and features breathtaking views from any of the decks and is still only minutes away from world class dining, shopping and so many activities!
Aspen (famous for being Aspen and it is fun to see a celebrity or two!) along with the gorgeous Maroon Bells close by), and Glenwood Springs (famous for the hot springs pool and vapor caves, and recently acquired roller coaster, along with the zip line with spectacular views of the mountains ) is only 45 minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This southwestern style home is a gem! It sits atop the mountain with incredible views, and a short 15 minute drive will take you to world famous Aspen. The snow is superb from around November through April, and oftentimes beyond.
This home is absolutely gorgeous year round! The Aspen trees literally light up the mountain with fall colors, and the summer is green and lush! The perfect place to mountain bike, hike, sight see and relax!
It is approx. 2 miles from the house to the upper/lower malls. An extra bonus is the free bus shuttle service from the Aspen Airport to the Snowmass Village Mall. From there you can get a shuttle to the house (during the ski season)(Dial a Ride is $1.00 (paid for by the town of Snowmass!) or take a taxi (very reasonable/
/competetive rate!) The public transportation is available from the rodeo grounds on down. Call the public transportation system at 1-970-923-3500 for more information.
Check out the X Games (in Aspen for free!) in January, Film and Music Festivals throughout the year as well as rodeos in the summer. Another exciting event is the Bike Pro World Cup that goes through Aspen and Snowmass on to Denver.
