The Snowmass Wilderness Estate is located at 6889 Capitol Creek Road, Snowmass, CO, on East Sopris Creek in the upper Capitol Creek area of Old Snowmass. The property sits at 8,500’ just above the Hay Park Trailhead where hikers and horseback riders embark on trips into the upper Capitol Creek watershed in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area and White River National Forest. The area is where exhilarating Colorado alpine experiences take place, with iconic destinations such as Capitol Peak (a Fourteener), Snowmass Lake, and Williams Lake (where John Denver wrote “Rocky Mountain High”) each just a beautiful day trip away.
The Aspen/Snowmass resorts and their world-class recreational amenities and the restaurants and shopping of the city of Aspen are all approximately 45 minutes from the property, as is the Pitkin County Airport, where flights connect from many major U.S. cities. The quaint town of Basalt is 45 minutes away, and Carbondale and Glenwood are about a one hour drive.
The Snowmass Wilderness Estate is high elevation living at its best – 8,500 feet – so winters at the property can be cold and snowy, but one still often experiences stretches of nice days with the sun being strong, while summers are sunny with cool nights and intermittent afternoon showers.
