This private community, with two new homesites currently under development and up for sale, affords unobstructed mountain views, endless recreation, and luxury living in the Colorado Rockies.
Steamboat Springs is an idyllic getaway for all seasons. Situated on the Yampa River in the Rocky Mountains of northwestern Colorado, it’s a place for fishing, hiking, mountain biking, white-water rafting — and, in the winter, skiing some of the best slopes in the country. For lovers of the great outdoors who also appreciate luxury living, Steamboat is also home to the Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club, a residential development designed for just that.
Spanning 1,216 acres of the Yampa Valley, Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club is a private land preservation community that caters to a homeowner’s and adventurer’s every need — without sacrificing luxury. It affords you direct access to the slopes at the adjacent Steamboat Ski Resort. It allows you to fish in peace along 1.5 miles of private property on the Yampa River or cast your line from the comfort of the dock at the stocked lake onsite. It has 5 miles of trails carved out for exploring the surrounding landscape on foot or on horseback. Its equestrian facility boasts a community barn for housing your horses. And, most notably, it features 900 acres of protected land dedicated to wildlife preservation. Every homesite borders either the wildlife or upland preserve, allowing residents to regularly witness fox, deer, elk, moose, and other fauna in their natural environment.

The recreation and majestic views are endless at Alpine Mountain, as are the luxury amenities. In addition to the top-notch equestrian facilities and sparkling onsite lake — where you can not only fish with your youngsters but also partake in paddle boarding and other water activities — the ranch maintains a private Hermitage retreat for getting away to the backcountry, a Guest House for hosting family and friends without forfeiting your own space, and an Owners’ Lodge with a full kitchen and great room for entertaining outside of your home. Then there’s the onsite concierge service. They are available 24-7 to ensure you don’t waste time arranging tee times and airport transportation during your stay, and so you feel right at home upon arrival, they will even pre-stock your fridge and regulate your home temperature. But arguably best of all, Alpine Mountain Ranch homeowners can apply for membership at the Alpine Mountain Summit Club, primely located on the slopes at One Steamboat Place with the gondola mere steps away. Aside from valet ski services, the club is equipped with a fitness center, day spa and sauna, heated outdoor pools, and a private lounge that hosts breakfast and après ski daily — everything you need to relax and enjoy your retreat in the Rocky Mountains.
Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club features 63 homesites, each spanning five acres, and two brand-new custom homes, which are currently listed for sale and undergoing development. Available for move-in before Thanksgiving, homesite No. 12 is a 5,7000-square-foot residence designed with a mountain contemporary aesthetic. Emphasizing energy efficiency, integrated indoor and outdoor spaces, and natural light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows, the home will consist of five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a three-car garage. At homesite No. 18, a mountain transitional residence is underway. Designed by the local Wagner Design Studios, it boasts barreled roofs, natural stone, and timber framing. In addition to five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, this home will be made complete with a spacious covered deck, separate guest casita, and three-car garage.
