$36m Colorado Ranch With Private Ski Area Goes On Sale

A 6,343 acre ranch in Colorado that features its own private ski area has gone on sale for $36 million (US).

Elk Island Ranch near the mountain town of Kremmling and around 55 miles from Steamboat and Breckenridge.

Along with trails for horseback riding and mountain biking the ranch includes an area of private ski slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding, and a 750 metre sledding hill.

It is not clear from the property’s listing or posted images whether there’s any ski lift – but there appear to be at least a dozen trails from this summer image:

Another novel feature of the property is a 7,900-square-foot traditional Wild-west style saloon with a custom bar, dance floor and gaming tables.

The main 16,000-square-foot property has five bedrooms and 12 bathrooms and features a three-story log staircase, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces.

There’s also a large separate workshop area and for hunting and fishing the property is home to elk,  deer and a trout stream with reservoirs for fishing and boating.
