FOR SALE: Former Ski Resort 18 Miles From Denver Listed @ $25.8 Million


Denver business leaders John and Debi Medved are selling their  mountainside ranch situated 18 miles from downtown Denver on the former site of Arapahoe East Ski Area. The ski area which operated from 1972 to 1984 had a poma and double chairlift accessing 600ft of vertical drop. They unfortunately ripped out the lifts when they redeveloped so they could get views of the metro area but when the weather agrees, there are still serviceable slopes you can shuttle up with snowmobiles. The property is marketed as a gentleman’s ranch (smaller end property that gives the experience of ranching without all the hassle). 17,000sqft nine-bedroom home, 327 acres with an easy commute to the Mile High City, throw in a chairlift and you got a private ski hill…asking price $25.8 million. FULL LISTING HERE.

This one-of-a-kind Gentlemen’s Ranch cannot be replicated, this is the first time offering more than twice the acreage previously listed at a reduced price. Sitting in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, this ranch boasts the best of all worlds featuring unmatched views of Denver and the Front Range to the east and exquisite snow-capped Rocky Mountains to the west. The main improvements are impeccable and feature a 17,000± square foot mansion that resonates with luxury living throughout. The beautiful log horse barn and secluded property create a recreational oasis for the owners and their guests. The equestrian improvements provide everything that the discerning horse enthusiast would want. Stands of dark timber and meadows cover the acreage. Wildlife, including elk, deer, and wild turkeys, call the ranch home. Located just off Interstate 70, the ranch is easily accessible and conveniently located 20 minutes from downtown Denver and all that it has to offer. Easy access to I-70 provides the gateway to the Rocky Mountains and endless recreational activities. The Bear Mountain Ranch would be a tremendous private holding or a corporate retreat that is close to all that Colorado has to offer. Choose your adventure, Bear Mountain Ranch offers it all.
