Not only will skiers and snowboarders who sign up for Skico’s Powder Tours be able to access a large portion of the backside and Richmond Ridge in winter, but also in summer for guided hiking, mountain biking and camping on the property, according to Pitkin County documents and sources.
The purchase by the Crown family, Skico’s owners, and at least one partner also comes with the right to develop a second cabin on Richmond Ridge near a 250-square-foot “Lunch Cabin” already on the property, according to documents filed in the Pitkin County Clerk’s Office.
