Want to own one of the nicest mansions in Colorado that’s also on the site of a former ski area? Priced at $13.5 million, the Bear Mountain Estate in Golden, Colorado is only around twenty minutes away from downtown Denver. The 51-acre property is on the site of the former Arapahoe East Ski Area, and you can buy more acreage around the property that can make for some great skiing. The residence is a 17,000 square foot building that has nine bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, and has stunning views of Denver and the front range. Some of the amenities include a mother-in-law suite, an outdoor pool, a huge seven-car garage, gym, sauna, library, movie theater, ski storage room, and more.
The property sits on the summit of the former Arapahoe East ski area. Known as Denver’s closest ski area when it was open, the ski area featured three lifts, night skiing, and snowmaking. It operated from 1972 to 1984 and was closed down after the Colorado Tramway Board cited the ski area for multiple violations regarding employees drinking on the job. Pictures of the property, along with a trail map of the ski area are below…
