The 137± acre Snow Drift Ranch sits among  cascading pinnacles of a majestic skyline made up of peaks such as Courthouse Mountain, Mount Sneffels, Teakettle, Whitehorse, Mount Ridgeway, Wolcott, Mears, Ruffner and Chimney Rock.  The region complements their breathtaking views with world-class recreation and lifestyle. This area of Colorado’s stunning San Juan Mountains is a recreational paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Snow Drift Ranch serves as a gateway to a lifetime of adventures, offering access to Montrose (35 minutes), Ridgway (15 minutes), Ouray (25 minutes), and Telluride (35 minutes).

The awe-inspiring Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, home of the dramatic landscapes carved by the Gunnison River, the canyon is second to the Grand Canyon in size only, not beauty. Ridgway offers fishing, camping, and boating at Ridgway State Park, adding to its charming downtown and well-preserved Victorian architecture.  The views, recreational access, and quality of life are accentuated by the impressive improvements this ranch offers with over 10,000± square feet of upgrades hosting 4-6 bedrooms, six bathrooms, two kitchens, Caretaker quarters, libraries, flex rooms, 2- steam rooms, heated garage, 38' heated RV bay. These impressive improvements have the dual capability of being on the electrical system or being fully off the grid.

World-renowned trails such as the Rimrocker Trail, an epic OHV route traverse stunning landscapes between Montrose, CO and Moab, UT.  The Alpine Loop is a historic mining route showcasing breathtaking scenery and is perfect for OHV and mountain bike enthusiasts.
