Sloping up the hillside opposite the ski mountain, and peering over Aspen Central Core’s sparkling lights at night, Red Mountain is home to some of the priciest real estate in Aspen, as well as the world. Forbes has even deemed Red Mountain as “Billionaire Mountain,” due to the number of Forbes 400 members who live there. This is the equivalent of Los Angeles’ Bel Air, the Hamptons’ Cooper’s Beach, or Palm Beach’s Estate sections.
With captivating views of all four local ski areas and downtown Aspen, Aspen Mountain, the Elk Mountain Range, Independence Pass, Mt. Sopris, and the Maroon Bells, Red Mountain is only five minutes from Aspen’s Central Core, which boasts gourmet dining, incredible art galleries, exquisite shopping, and renowned spas.
Adventure abounds on Red Mountain, where during the summer, access is easy to biking the Rio Grande Trail along the Roaring Fork River, hiking the Smuggler Trail and the Hunter Creek Valley are popular activities.
Red Mountain includes Pitkin Green, known for some of the most expensive estates in the USA; Ridge of Red Mountain offers front-row views of downtown Aspen and the fireworks; and Red Mountain Ranch where property owners can board their own horses. Single-family homes dominate Red Mountain. There are no condominiums.
