Property Description

Blizzardine Mountain Ranch

Blizzardine Mountain Ranch consists of 105 Lush acres in the shadow of the Sangre de Cristo Range and borders the National Forest. This property is comprised of gentle sloping meadows and forest. This is the kind of property that most dream about and very few will ever get to own. Camp out or spend the night in the cozy cabin and invite your hunting and climbing buddies to bunk in the bunkhouse.  Watch herds of elk grazing and bears romping while you sip your morning coffee. The Blizzardine Mountain Ranch borders the National Forest and a gentle hike into the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness all from the portals on your very own property. Complete the fantasy with a year round stocked pond and a stream.  This can be your dream come true!

Land

Blizzardine Mountain Ranch borders the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range.  And behold, the Crestone Needles, Crestone Peak, Kit Carson Mountain and Humbolt Peak are in your backyard.  Just a little south you’ll hike across Blueberry Peak.  The Great Sand Dunes are just across the mountain range and south.    The backyard from this property is one of a kind. 

Hunting

One interesting fact about this property is it lies right in the path of the elk migration!  As many as 250 head of elk have been seen crossing into the property from the national forest.  Call or email for map.

This property is full of wildlife, especially elk and bear.  You’ll enjoy the songs from the many bluebirds, and be mesmerized by the soaring eagles that frequent the property.  Electricity is available in Ute Road, which borders the north edge of the eastern part of the property, and through the middle of the west acreage in the road near the cabin. This entire property is fenced. This part of the property is in Capote Springs. 

Cabin and Outbuildings

The property has a tiny cabin with a wonderful deck with relaxing views of the valley and meadows. The cabin has a bathroom and kitchen, a loft and living room.  Gaze into the fireplace that keeps the cabin cozy on a chilly day.  The well and septic are in place.

The bunkhouse is located south of the pond and can sleep 10-12 people. 

Water Rights

There is a water right for the pond.  It is stocked with trout and offers a cool drink of water for all the wildlife in the area. You can sit on the bench by the pond, which is stocked with Browns, Brookie's and Rainbow Trout ... feed the fish and just watch…. you will love what you see!

Location

Westcliffe and Silver Cliff are located in the Wet Mountain Valley, Custer County, at approximately 8000 feet. The two towns are bordered on the west by the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains that ascend to 14,000 feet on some peaks, and the rolling Wet Mountains to the east. The Collegiate Peaks can be seen in the north along with Pikes Peak, and the Spanish Peaks can be seen to the south. The Wet Mountain Valley is famous for its unparalleled views, rural-ranching lifestyle, and endless miles of wilderness hiking trails through high-mountain meadows bursting with wildflowers and over 40 high-mountain lakes for fly-fishing.

The Ute Indians were attracted to the Wet Mountain Valley by the plentiful water and abundant game. In the mid 1500’s Spanish explorers entered the western edge of Custer County in search of gold, silver and the fountain of youth. Over three hundred years later Europeans finally found the precious metals they sought, however, we are still looking for the fountain of youth.

Custer County was formed in 1877 and is the 10th smallest of the 64 counties in Colorado. Its tranquil valley, spectacular mountains and thousands of acres of National Forest make the County a magnet for hikers, climbers, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. The Wet Mountain Valley reminds visitors of what Colorado once was, and Custer County still is.

Westcliffe is an easy 3-hour drive from Denver, 1.5 hour drive from Colorado Springs, and 45 minutes from Canon City and Pueblo.
