About the Property

A next-door neighbor to Eleven Experience’s flagship property, Sopris House is full of history and character, just like the town of Crested Butte. The original 1882 building infamously became the Spritzer Bar, a saloon bought by Martin Spritzer in 1924 and operated by Slovenian immigrants. The intimate, four-bedroom home still has its original tin ceiling and mountain town touches like a massive buffalo head in the dining room. A custom-designed snowcat picks guests up each morning and drops them at 1,000+ acres of exclusive ski terrain in nearby Irwin, home to cold-smoke powder, alpine bowls, and tight tree runs. Or guests can take it easy and explore the surrounding snowy trails by snowshoe, cross country ski, or fat bike. A sauna, hot tub, and fire pit await back home in the courtyard and après is steps away in the home’s private cabin-like bar.
