Perhaps the most stunning property available on the resort market today, Ski View Ranch, has views falling somewhere on the spectacular to magnificent spectrum. The 100+ forested acres gently rise up to a long, wide ridge staring at the entire face of the Steamboat ski area and Steamboat's famous Fish Creek Falls. The land is only 1/4 mile from the city limits, with gated access and utilities to a historic cabin. A decreed spring supplied water to the cabin in years past and continues to feed a pond near the adjoining 2M-acre Routt-Medicine Bow National Forest. Elk, mule deer, black bear, moose, and a variety of small game animals move seamlessly between the protection of the ranch and the vast expanse of public land that borders the property. The generally north-facing slopes invite healthy evergreen growth that creates an alpine feel at a relatively low elevation. Aspen groves and small open meadows populate the west-facing slopes. Good ranch roads that were professionally constructed using materials on the property lead through these beautiful, healthy forests. In the same family for almost a century, the ranch is the only privately owned property from which the state's second-largest waterfall is visible. Spring runoff is fast, furious, and wildly scenic, and the roar of the falls is easily heard from the property. Front and center along the ridge is a view of the newly expanded Steamboat ski area, soon to be the 2nd largest in Colorado. A $200M project is underway with a new ice rink, several restaurants, a state-of-the-art gondola, and additional terrain. Downtown Steamboat, only a few minutes drive, has boutique shops, great dining options, art galleries, local breweries, and fishing on the Yampa River. A bike and walking path stretches from one end of town to the other, paralleling the Yampa River almost the entire way. The edge-of-town location, healthy forests, low taxes, and seriously unbelievable views are unlike any other piece of land available for sale.
