Are you looking for a second property as a vacation home or place to use for skiing close to metro Denver?  Many people believe the mountain communities west of Denver, especially those near the ski resorts, are only affordable to the very wealthy.  That simply isn't true.

Tired of spending time driving from the Front Range to ski or hike for a day and spend all the time driving?  Consider Clear Creek County which covers from Evergreen in the foothills west of Denver to the Eisenhower Tunnel and Loveland Ski Area. 
West of the Tunnel in Summit County, a studio or 1 bedroom condo easily runs $150,000 - $200,000+ at the low end.  In Clear Creek County you can get a 1 bedroom condo in Georgetown for well under $100,000 and be 15 minutes from Loveland Ski Area.  There are even recent 2 bedroom condos that have sold for less than $100,000.  Loveland has one of the longest ski seasons and is perhaps the most accessible ski area from Denver. 
You may even consider some of the other smaller communities like Empire or Silver Plume.  From Georgetown, within an hour, you have access to 8 excellent ski areas.  It is also a wonderful year-round destination with the Georgetown Loop Railroad, Guanella Pass, easy access to hike 14ers, and the Christmas Market every December.
If you want to spend less time driving and more time enjoying the mountains, please give me a call and I will help you find a place that suits your needs!
