=== Affordable

You don't have to pay Aspen Extreme prices to spend a week in Aspen-Snowmass. Sure, you could rent one of the other homes on our street for almost twice as much, or save by renting a dilapidated shack down the hill for about the same price as ours — but you've lucked out and stumbled upon our killer big mountain view, so save those bucks for a new pair of ski boots and spend a minute reading our affordable tale.

A Snowmass Pioneer, my grandfather paid cash for a small plot of land at the end of a jeep road back in 1966 and built himself a cabin overlooking the future town of Snowmass Village. In the 1980s, concerned that those working in the valley were no longer able to afford to live in the valley, he dedicated the entirety of his retirement to organizing what is now the crown jewel of the Aspen/Snowmass community: the Affordable Employee Housing Program.

In 2005, with the roof leaking, the single-pane windows drafty, and the property taxes mounting on our grandfather's lucky strike, we sold the homestead and set our sights on a seldom-used, modern, comfortable home with a remarkable view just one ridge west.

In 2010, after five years of my family allowing a property management company to hawk our home at $800-$1200/night (and somehow still owing money at the end of the month), I decided to move out to the mountains and try my hand at it myself.

It turns out that cutting cutting out the commission, upgrading the amenities, and flashing a friendly smile works wonders — We now sell out each winter, pulling in just enough to ensure that this view will be enjoyed by my family (and yours) for generations to come.

This fall, we will be digging out the grass turf and revegetating with native plants, doing our part to keep the valley as it was in 1966 when my grandfather took a jeep ride in search of paradise.

I hope you are able to make it out this winter. Think snow, and I'll see you on the slopes!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was great to work with and was available 24/7 for anything that we needed. This home was perfect for our large group and was a true "Gem" in Snowmass. The owner was super helpful with advice, driving info, where things are located, etc. The overall location was great, the view...unbelievable, the house is huge, and had everything we could ask for and more. Never did anyone in our group of 8 ever feel like they were crowded or in each others space. Everyone in our group raved about their time here and staying here in Snowmass, it was perfect. We cant thank Cody enough for allowing us the opportunity to stay here and have an EPIC snowboarding and skiing weekend with friends. If only all owners were this attentive and great to work with!

Excellent ski house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this over Presidents weekend. We were 2 families of 4, with teenage kids. The house was very nice and everything was in perfect shape. The owners take pride in this house and are very helpful and answered all of our questions, even calling us directly when we needed something. There is plenty of room to spread out, the kitchen is great to cook in and the grill is nice too. We went skiing at Snowmass every day, it was a 5 minute drive to the mountains, and the owners give you a parking pass to several lots that make it easy in and out for skiing. I would highly recommend this place for large groups or multiple families.

We had a wonderful week staying at this house. THe views are gorgeous, we loved the hot tub and appreciated the ability to cook large meals in a fully stocked kitchen. It was very easy to access the slopes with the parking pass Cody provided.
