The Wildhorse at Prospect community is located on the northern edge of the town of Mount Crested Butte, near the Goldlink and Prospect chairlifts and bordering the national forest (see map below). Wildhorse includes just over 50 homesites, of which more than half were built around 2007. Construction halted during the 2008 recession, and resumed 10 years later. Most properties in the area are single family homes, though there are also a handful of duplex townhomes. The neighborhood is within a short distance of Crested Butte Mountain Resort, providing great skier access as well as access to beautiful hiking and biking trails such as Meander and Snodgrass during the summer months. Homes on the northern edge of the development contain some of the most beautiful views you can find in any ski town, with the meandering East river below and towering Elk Mountains above. On the other side of the neighborhood, views of the ski area and peak of Mt Crested Butte are front and center.
Homes in Wild Horse have HOA fees, but those fees cover a number of items including landscaping, snow removal, building maintenance, internet, cable TV, and more (as of 2020). This gives homeowners more time to enjoy their home and outdoor activities rather than hiring subcontractors or working on their homes themselves. Short term rentals are not allowed in this neighborhood. Additional HOA information can be found at this website.
