The residence offers six stunning bedrooms, seven fireplaces, and such resort-inspired amenities as an elevator, ski room, workshop and wine cellar. The main living area has a contemporary open floor plan with a lofty ceiling and massive glass walls. Outdoors is an open-air kitchen with a fireplace and grill, perfect for après-ski entertaining.

Located in Montana’s Big Sky Resort, this ski-in, ski-out home has a prime location at the confluence of the White Otter and Rosebud ski trails. The three-story residence blends contemporary and rustic design elements. The home comes fully furnished and features an expansive living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a wood-burning fireplace, a gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar, a main-level master suite, two additional en suite bedrooms, and a lower-level bunk room, bedroom, and living area. The home’s outdoor spaces include two decks, a garage, and a hot tub adjacent to the ski trail.

Luxury mountain living is assured at this contemporary lodge-style home (also pictured top), close to the celebrated Sun Valley Resort. The home’s striking exterior is a convergence of steel, stone, glass, concrete and wood, while stunning interior details include soaring ceilings, several fireplaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase 360-degree mountain views. A voluminous great room, lavish master suite, four-bay garage, and a stone terrace with a reflection pool and fire pit are additional highlights.

This spectacular estate in the ski mecca of Aspen has been in the same family for the past 70 years, and is the largest and most private lot currently listed on Red Mountain.

The seven-bedroom, 6,800-plus-square-foot home was constructed in 2002 from wood, stucco, metal, and glass, is set at the base of Aspen’s Red Mountain. 

The Rocky Mountains are the majestic backdrop to this spectacular home in one of the world’s top-ranked ski destinations, Telluride Ski Resort. The 8,000-square-foot residence is built into a private, three-quarter-acre forested setting to take advantage of the San Sophia Range views. The home’s three main living areas, which encompass five bedrooms, a ski utility wing and three-car garage, are connected by bridges for a unique living experience.
