This sporting ranch in Colorado hit the market at $36 million.
What do the ski resorts of Steamboat, Winter Park, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Copper Mountain have in common? They're all within spitting distance of Elk Island Ranch. Just about 55 miles, in fact. Located outside the mountain town of Kremmling, this more than 6,000-acre property sits in prime Colorado ski country. It's not just downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and taking advantage of the massive sledding hill at this sporting compound, though. The "Island" in the Elk Island Ranch name stems from the magnificent forest of aspen and conifer trees that find themselves engulfed by a sea of grass and rolling sage, creating a wildlife habitat rich with elk, mule deer, and pronghorn. Outside the winter months, its your recreation of choice: trout fishing, big game hunting, shooting sports, paintball, horseback riding, mountain biking, motorsports—even frolicking through the wildflowers.
