$33 Million Mountain Chalet Could Break a Price Record in Vail, Colorado
Newly listed ski home spanning 12,000 square feet with creek access and a host of lavish amenities.
A nearly 12,000-square-foot ski chalet in Vail, Colorado, hit the market for $32.95 million this week, making it, according to the Vail MLS, one of the top three most expensive listings in the area.
In the words of the listing agent Tye Stockton from LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, the seven-bedroom, 14-bathroom home is one of only 16 ski-in, ski-out properties in Vail. It delivers exclusive access through the Born Free Express, a famous trail on the slope, to Vail Mountain.

“Ski-in, ski-out is our beachfront property equivalent,” Mr. Stockton added. It also sits right on Gore Creek, which makes it even more special. It is extremely unusual to have ski access, creek frontage, and privacy all in one place.
“If it sells for over $30 million, that will be the first home in Vail to sell for over $30 million,” Mr. Stockton stated. “So we will keep a close eye on that.”
According to public records, the property last traded in 2008 for $12.75 million. For this article, the owners, who purchased the property from the developers and were its only owners, refused to comment.
The house, inspired by ski chalets located in the Alps, boasts of a facade of wood and Tuscan gold stone and is bordered by mature trees. For serious ski families, the house is set up,” he said.”
