Copper Mountain Offers Ski-In, Ski-Out Living

Copper Mountain/Frisco, Amy Nakos

In this month’s column, I wanted to focus on real estate opportunities and proposals for change at Copper Mountain. As Summit County Brokers, I urge you to consider showing Copper Mountain to your buyers who are looking for a resort experience along with a great ski mountain.

Real Estate Opportunities

Do you have clients in the luxury market who are looking for ski-in, ski-out living? Then you should take a look at Lewis Ranch. Lewis Ranch, a gated community, is located on the west side of Copper Mountain, just past the Union Creek ski areas. The homes are located on the ski run, or so close that it hardly feels like an inconvenience to walk a few steps to the runs. Currently there are three single family homes listed from $3,995,000 to $4,100,000, and are all over 5,000 square feet. One is available for occupancy; the other two are planned for or under construction.

A number of ski-in, ski-out duplexes are also available in Lewis Ranch, ranging in price from $1,895,000 to $3,097,000. They range in size from 2,700 square feet to over 4,200 square feet.

Maybe your client wants to build? There are 12 lots available for purchase in the Lewis Ranch neighborhood ranging in price from $989,000 to $1,350,000.

Copper Mountain also has a wide variety of condos to choose from located in the East and Center Villages ranging in price from $295,000 to $1,199,000.

Proposed Changes at Copper Mountain

For the past few years, Copper Mountain has been working on getting a Planned Unit Development approved through the Ten Mile Planning Commission and The Board of County Commissioners. The last work session was December 4, 2007 and another work session is planned for December 18, 2007.

At the December 4 work session, Copper Mountain proposed concentrating density in the core of the resort including preliminary plans for a 10-story hotel on the site of the existing Chapel parking lot. Copper is also proposing a new neighborhood near the Alpine (“A-lift”) area and added density near the Copper Valley Condo.For more information on the Summit County planning department and about Copper's PUD application go to - under current projects.
