Colorado’s First Private Ski Resort Just Opened — and Memberships Are Going for Over $2 Million
Everyone knows Aspen as the winter playground for America’s rich and famous. But Cimarron Mountain Club, Colorado’s first and only private ski resort, which launched in the San Juan Mountains earlier this month, is taking alpine luxury to a whole new altitude.
Membership is limited to just 13 families (with 7 spots already taken) and includes access to more skiable terrain that Aspen Mountain.
But the real jaw-dropper is the price — a whopping $2.285 million per family, with yearly fees between $55,000 and $65,000.
What that hefty sum will buy you: a 35-acre parcel of land, upon which you can build the chalet of your dreams, as well as access to 60+ runs spread over 1,000 private acres— a major draw if you want to ski untracked powder for weeks on end.
Meanwhile, more budget-minded one-percenters have the option to not build their own accommodations and instead bed down at the three-bedroom Club Cabin or in one of two luxe yurts.
Normally, we'd tell you to act fast, but given the, uh, obvious price restrictions, we'll instead invite you to peruse this list of more affordable ski getaways.
