Highlighted by a stunning mountain landscape and truly exceptional improvements, Elk Island Ranch is one of Colorado's finest sporting ranches. Encompassing 6,343± completely private and contiguous acres, the raw land has been meticulously improved and equipped into a four-season recreational playground of the highest order. A rarity on a mountain property of this size, fully-furnished luxurious accommodations complement the compelling landscape. An enviable location near several resort areas and less than 10 minutes from a real town with jet strip makes the ranch easy to access and enjoy.
At the heart of this vast land mass is the "island," a broad forest of aspen and conifer trees encircled by a sea of grass and rolling sage. A mosaic of timbered areas and the accompanying edge areas and transition zones result in prime wildlife habitat creating a veritable sanctuary for elk, mule deer and pronghorn. A year-round creek flows through the center of the ranch and a variety of large and small ponds provide water for wildlife and stock. Rising above the island are private ski slopes and below are a blue-ribbon tailwater trout stream and large reservoirs for boating and fishing.
Masterfully created to be a magnet for multi-generational usage, the ranch offers a wide variety of recreational amenities and attractions throughout the year. During the warmer months, outdoor activities include trout fishing, big game hunting, shooting sports and paintball. The extensive network of roads on the ranch are ideal for horseback riding, mountain biking, motorsports or just strolling through the wildflowers. Winter is one of the most active seasons at the ranch, with on-site downhill skiing and snowboarding, Nordic skiing, snowmobiling and a breathtaking 2,400' sledding hill.
