“A home-site chosen by the original investors of Vail Mountain for its unparalleled access to the ski slopes, unobstructed views of the Gore Range and pristine natural surroundings, 375 Mill Creek Circle combines timeless luxury with impeccable craftsmanship while absorbing the incredible history of this premier ski-in / ski-out location.
The European-style chalet, built in 1996 by George Shaeffer Construction, was built with the family in mind, suitable to sleep up to 18 people comfortably and play host to children and grandchildren during the holidays and family ski trips. Immediately off the backyard, which backs up to the Golden Peak base area and is surrounded by old-growth aspen and spruce trees, are the Gopher Hill chairlift and Elvis Bahn magic carpet that service beginner-level skiers. A few steps further is the Riva Bahn high-speed quad, which leads to Chair 10 and Chair 14 — long-considered by locals to be the quickest, most efficient route to Vail’s Back Bowls.
From the front of the home, Gondola One and the heart of Vail Village, with its world-class dining and nightlife, are just a few steps away. And there simply is no better location to enjoy culture and events, such as the New Year’s Eve torchlight ski-down, Fourth of July fireworks and the GoPro Mountain Games.The great room adjoins an oversized flagstone deck and outdoor living space, perfectly positioned to peer over the treetops at the iconic mountain scenery that has come to define the Vail experience.
