It might be Outdoors Week around the Curbed nation, but let's face it, it's kinda always Outdoors Week here at Curbed Ski. That's because whether it's blizzarding (yes, that's a technical term) or bright and sunny, ski-town lovers just want to be outside. And ski country real estate across North America reflects our must-be-in-fresh-air obsession. We've got baller pools, killer outdoor fire pits, and private marinas galore. So here now, we present the ten prettiest real estate listings for sale right now, ski edition.
↑ Maybe it's because of all the snow, but rooftop terraces are hard to come by in ski towns, which makes this 4 bedroom, 4 bath penthouse in Aspen that much better. Only one block from the Aspen mountain gondola, this fancy abode asking $14.5 million has five outdoor terraces, including one with a fireplace, hot tub, outdoor kitchen, garden area, and 360 degree views. More info, this way.
↑ On the market for $3,988,000, this 5 bedroom, 7 bath home in Park City really knows how to take advantage of its epic views. A huge wall of windows accordion back for an indoor/outdoor living experience second to none. Add some fire pits, a huge deck, and it's time to party.
↑ Although indoor amenities like an AMF bowling ally, commercial shooting range, and 75-foot indoor pool make this Telluride listing mighty fine, it really shines when you head outside. There's a private golf fairway and putting green, a garden that might make Versailles jealous, a huge waterfall, gazebo with wet bar, and a 7-person hot tub, all for $18.5 million. More info here.
↑ Located near Aspen, this Woody Creek home wows with an outdoor space that looks more like an exotic getaway than a ski home. The $20 million listing sits on 16 acres of ponds, manicured landscapes, water features, wildflowers, and includes a covered patio with wood burning fireplace. More info here.
↑ $8.8 million gets you quite the property in Sun Valley, and this 6 bedroom, 7 bath home is no exception. It's a veritable water wonderland with multiple ponds, streams, and a custom pool complete with waterfall. We love the rock design and the privacy provided by the surrounding trees. Head over here for more details.
↑ $65 million can buy you a lot of outdoor amenities, and this 18,000 square foot mansion in Snowmass's Four Peaks certainly fits the bill. There's an indoor/outdoor pool with a planetarium roof and a private pond off of a (of course) private beach. One fire pit just won't do, so there are 6 in all, which perfectly complements two outdoor kitchens and an outdoor pizza oven. Head over here for more details.
↑ Riverfront properties aren't quite as splashy as the pool-obsessed megamansions, but we think this Sun Valley barn home just oozes homey charm. A cozy rock seating area, plenty of grass, and the creek running by is the perfect complement to the $3.5 million house's indoor appeal. More details this way.
↑ The inside of Idaho's most expensive listing (asking $36 million) might be cluttered with western cliches, but outside you can bask in a host of amenities. An infinity pool with gorgeous lake views, spa, private marina, and outdoor fireplace make this listing an outdoor mountain paradise. There's even a helipad for all you billionaires out there! More info here.
↑ In Jackson Hole's fancy Shooting Star development, this 6 bedroom home asking $11.25 million is all about design inside and out. Reclaimed wood, heavy timbers, and a stone patio with outdoor fireplace and hot tub make this Wyoming abode a tempting outdoor oasis. More info here.
↑ Located on the Roaring Fork River, this five-bedroom Aspen gem wants $11.75 million for its collection of outdoor amenities. With 6 bedrooms and 7 baths inside, the home boasts extensive gardens, a manicured yard, an outdoor fireplace and serene patio for entertaining. More info here.
↑ Although not for sale, we couldn't resist including this Coeur d'Alene backyard that's perfect for bikers. The owner of Terra Sports Bike shop took the "do what you love" concept to a whole new level, installing this backyard pump track for mountain biking. Damn!
