SUMMER/FALL: Beautiful hiking, cycling and mountain biking trails around Leadville, Collegiate Peaks and Turquoise and Twin Lakes , and the surrounding areas. Close-by 14er's for hiking, fly fishing on the Arkansas, horseback riding, lake fishing, river rafting, biking, etc. Aspen is only 40 miles away (when Independence Pass is open) and Summit County is only about 30 minutes away. Leadville has many sporting events and music and art festivals to enjoy. Our house is next to Empire Creek with beaver ponds for instant nature explorations and easy hikes.
WINTER: Great skiing- 10 miles from Ski Cooper, 25 miles from Copper Mountain, 40 miles from Vail. Over 9 ski areas within 40 miles! Leadville also has a great sledding hill, outdoor ice skating rink, aquatic center, dog sledding, Mineral Belt trail for cross country skiing and tons of snowshoe trails on Tennessee Pass and surrounding areas. We also have great sledding on our road! Lots of fun for everyone! The roads to the house and Beaver Lakes Estates are plowed and maintained in the winter. Our driveway is also plowed. We recommend an all-wheel drive car or SUV in the winter as although the roads are plowed, they can be snowpacked!
Beaver Lakes is located the San Isabel National Forest about 6 miles south of Leadville and about 20 miles north of Buena Vista – 2+ hours from COS or DEN airports. We love our mountain house and use it regularly but want to share it with others too!
