I love to ski and mountain bike. I built this house (Ok...a contractor built the house) in 2005 to fulfill my lifelong dream of having a mountain home. My wife and kids don't like skiing at all...but they love going to the mountains!I looked all over the country for a place to build my mountain home. My first priority was proximity to world class skiing. Breckenridge Ski Resort (1/2 hour away) is the number one destination for European Skiers when they leave Europe to Ski. That's the definition of world class to me:)
While I love the town of Breckenridge, I wanted a more secluded, quiet experience for my mountain home. The Hifalutin Lodge sits in a beautiful Aspen grove, and directly adjoins national forest land. It's in a friendly community made up of locals and vacation home owners.
I also enjoy cross country skiing and mountain biking. Both, depending on the season, can be done directly out the door of my home...you don't even need a car to access spectacular single track mountain bike and ski trails in the Pike National Forest.
