North America’s Strongest Ski Town Real Estate Markets

The Resorts West Ski Dream Home at Deer Valley Resort

Given Aspen’s national attention as home to one of the country’s most expensive zip codes, it comes as no surprise that this Colorado ski town should lead the North American alpine real estate market as well. Aspen boasts 125 listings for $5 million or more, including 38 above the $10 million mark.

Park City, Utah follows with 69 homes listed at $5 million or more and 14 above $10 million — although this Olympic destination is the clear winner for homes with true ski-in/ski-out access. Where Aspen’s home prices reflect square feet and a reputation for glamour, Park City’s value is largely in location. Nearly every home listed above $5 million offers ski-in/ski-out access, with gated communities like Deer Crest at Deer Valley Resort going a step further with access to private slopes.

The Lake Tahoe area can thank its year-round allure for high property prices, including North America’s most expensive ski town estate — a 38,000 square-foot Stateline, Nev. home worth $75 million. Stateline is near Heavenly Resort.
