Seldom do iconic ski properties such as The Summit House ever come on the market as they tend to be held and enjoyed by multiple generations of one family. Such is the story of this extraordinary ski home on the finest ski location of Aspen Snowmass Mountain which has been the year-round gathering place for friends and family for 4 decades.

Known by Aspen Snowmass skiers as the best click in and out ski home, its location mid-mountain allows its guests to start the ski day above Coney Glade and Alpine Springs lifts completely avoiding the village lines below. The south-facing siting fills the home with all-day sunshine and 360-degree panoramic views from every room.
The front seat views of Green Cabin trail allow even the non-skiers in the family to feel that they are participating in the action of the best ski area in North America or enjoy from the slope-side hot tub.
What is less known about The Summit House is that it converts to a horse property in the summer with the most stunning views from the mountain top corral with shelter and deck for relaxing after a vigorous trail ride. This corral is possible thanks to the 24 common acres shared between the 6 homes in Wood Run IV, the highest enclave of private homes on Snowmass mountain. The famous ‘government trail’, only 200 yards from the home, provides hiking, biking, and riding access to the entire Elk Mountain range.
The modern home designed by award-winning NY architect, Gene Futterman, boasts four bedrooms plus a large office/bedroom. The separate one-bedroom apartment which sleeps 4 when combined with the main house accommodates 14 guests. The apartment has its own magnificent views and private hot tub.
There is nothing like The Summit House. It must be seen to be appreciated.
