The Alpine Meadows community is located in the Slate River drainage, a few miles away from both Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte (see map). Most of the subdivision is on Nicholson Lake Ridge Road, a quiet cul-de-sac. This is an older subdivision, with modest homes from the 1970’s as well as newer, larger homes. Views from Alpine Meadows are some of the best you can find in the area, with Paradise Divide, the Slate River, Nicholson Lake and Mt Crested Butte all visible depending on the exact location of the land parcel. Speaking of beautiful Nicholson Lake, homeowners in this HOA have exclusive access to the lake for fishing, paddleboarding, canoeing and more. In the winter, this subdivision is located at the winter trailhead, so snowmobiling, Nordic skiing, backcountry skiing, and snowshoeing are all right outside your door. In summer, it’s a short distance to the Lower Loop and Lupine trails, as well as the scenic Oh-Be-Joyful valley.
Short term rentals are allowed but restricted to four rentals per year per home, giving owners some rental flexibility, but also providing a more peaceful and quiet experience. If you are looking for serenity, million dollar views, and easy access to the outdoors while still being close to downtown Crested Butte and all it has to offer, this is a neighborhood that should should be on your short list.
