PRIVATE PEAKS

 

ONE OF THE HOTTEST MARKETS -- PRIVATE-ACCESS SKIING -- IS ATTRACTING BUYERS SEEKING PRESTIGE, PRIVACY, AND AN ASSET THAT IS ENJOYED WHILE INCREASING IN VALUE.

by Irene Rawlings

Ski-country real estate has been trending upward since 2012 but has seen a sizable surge in the past two years, according to mountain-based real estate brokers. Properties are selling quickly, with many in pre-sales while they are still under construction, like the 48 nearly sold-out two- to six-bedroom condos (from $4 million) at the newly expanded lodge at the members-only Yellowstone Club. It is not only the quantity of snow but the quality -- acres and acres of untracked powder -- that lures well-heeled skiers to the private mountain experience. There's great appeal in skiing all day without crossing the tracks of another person. "We are unique," says Marty Stetina of Telluride Properties, the real estate broker representing Cimarron Mountain Club, "and there are just not a lot of us."

PERSONAL POWDER

Every skier dreams of a mountain with no lift lines, where you can score fresh tracks and ski in endless knee-deep powder. Two ultra-private ski resorts provide that experience -- each in a very different way. 

CIMARRON MOUNTAIN CLUB
SOUTHWEST COLORADO

Larger than Aspen Mountain, this oasis is the brainchild of avid skier and retired natural resources attorney Jim Aronstein. Aronstein wanted skiing to involve a greater connection with nature and wilderness so, in 2004, he bought his own mountain. In the remote San Juans (between Telluride and Crested Butte), the 1,750-acre property tops out at 11,450 feet with an appealing mix of terrain from open runs above the tree line to steep couloirs bordered by 800-foot-tall cliffs to trails following natural glades. Deep powder is never skied off by noon, and instead of chairlifts Cimarron operates snowcats with heated leather seats and about 12 minutes between runs. 

When Aronstein decided to share his find, he opened the place to just 13 other families, and seven memberships are left. The intention is to keep it small and undeveloped so the number will never increase. One of the super-pluses for arriving members is the helicopter pickup at the Montrose airport; the heli lands atop the ridge so passengers ski down to the glam yurts that make up the lodge. In summer, there's lake fishing on property or stream fishing on the Cimarron River. 

Real Estate Options: Every member pays $2.825 million and is deeded a 35-acre site on which to build.
