Blake’s Picks

Another ski season is upon us and forecasters are predicting an epic snow year.  Perfect timing for two new listings that appeal to a family ski experience.

Enclave Unit 101 [SOLD]

This condo offers an amazing and unique location along the slopes of Assay Hill all on the ground floor (no stairs to navigate in ski boots).  Literally click into your skis on your deck and ski Snowmass.  With 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, you have room for the entire family as the unit sleeps up to 12. With the new Limelight Hotel and the remainder of Base Village moving forward, now is the time to buy.  Add healthy rental potential and you have a great investment.
