Perfect mountain destination for spending quality time with family and friends: everything you need, and nothing you don't. Quiet private neighborhood, with trees, mountain views, and a year-round brook out the back door.
We are a two-minute drive from the base of Red Mountain Resort, just far enough to escape the bustle at the end of the day. We are not slope-side (you can hike 200 yards to the nearest ski run, and you can ski back, but it's so easy to drive and park that we don't bother).
Red is an old-school ski resort that is just coming of age. Slow lifts. No lift lines. Friendly people, good skiers, and no Kardashians. Endless steep tree runs, pockets of powder 3 days after a dump. Long an open secret among hardcore skiers, but the new intermediate runs and a soon-to-open hotel (with spa) make Red a viable family destination. At less than half the price of Vail or Whistler.
In summer there are hiking and mountain biking trails out the back door, whole mountains covered with wild berries to pick, fishing in the lakes and the nearby Columbia river.
Or you can just sit in the private hot tub and let the quiet soak in.
