Snowmass Village began development in 1967 with the opening of the Snowmass Ski Mountain. At the beginning it was mostly condos off of Fanny Hill and the main slope. Later on, the Woodrun subdivision was the first for single family homes and had great ski-in, ski-out lots and some interior lots with ski access near by. After Woodrun, subdivisions sprawled away from the ski area with Melton Ranch. Melton Ranch had smaller lots that allowed smaller single family homes and was a nice alternative for locals. Today about half of the homes have been rebuilt and about half are still occupied by locals. There were also some smaller lots along the Snowmass golf course that allowed smaller homes called County Club subdivision.
Later in the 1980’s, Ridge Run subdivision was started and had great ski access on top but more challenging ski access, if at all, as you made your way down the subdivision which is a mountain. Some of the lower lots are duplex lots. Next, came the Divide subdivision offering some prime larger lots with easy ski access along the Dawdler ski trail, and some with more advanced ski access towards Campground ski lift. The interior lots have ski access that can be more challenging.
Later on in the 1990’s, we saw the development start at Two Creeks and Two Creeks subdivision quickly became a favorite among the rich and famous. Every lot at Two Creeks was designed to be around an acre or more and to have easy ski-in, ski-out access.
Two Creeks is still my favorite subdivision in Snowmass because there not going to have any more lots that are ski-in, ski-out on Snowmass Mountain and Two Creeks provides a place to get away from the crowds of main Snowmass Mountain. The Pines subdivision next to the Two Creeks subdivision tried to also make every lot have ski-in, ski-out access. The Pines have some lots that have easy ski access and some that have more challenging ski access. For the ultra wealthy, Michael Douglas bought up Wildcat Ranch and decided to subdivide it into 200 to 600 acre lots, while preserving the main acreage of the ranch around the lake in the middle of the subdivision. If you have the money it does not get any better than living at Wildcat Ranch. The drawback is that it is not ski-in, ski-out, but the homeowners have found that they can just buy a social membership at the Timbers Club, and have parking and all the club amenities along with a ski-in, ski-out locker for the best of both worlds.
