1710 Sopris Mountain Ranch Road, Basalt, CO

Mount Sopris is located in western Pitkin County, south of Carbondale and southwest of the confluence of the Crystal and Roaring Fork rivers. Mount Sopris is notable for having two summits, East Sopris and West Sopris, that are one-half mile (0.8 km) apart and have the same elevation of 12,965 feet (3,952 m).

It is named for Richard Sopris, a former mayor of Denver and part of the first European expedition in the Roaring Fork Valley. In 2011 J.P. McDaniels petitioned to rename East Sopris “Mount John Denver” after the Colorado singer. A local poll in Aspen and Carbondale said 74 percent of the respondents were against the proposal.

Mount Sopris dominates the skyline of Carbondale and the lower Roaring Fork Valley, serving as an unofficial symbol of the area. It is prominently visible from State Highway 82 in the vicinity of Carbondale. In terms of local relief, it is one of the largest peaks in the state of Colorado. For example, West Sopris rises 6,400 ft (1,905 m) above the valley to the west in only 2.7 mi (4 km). Mount Sopris is an inactive volcano, but the exact time frame is not well documented. (One can compare this to the corresponding vertical rise of the more well-known Maroon Peak in the heart of the Elks: it rises only about 4,300 ft (1,310 m), at best, in the same horizontal distance.) In fact a vertical rise of over 6,000 feet in less than 3 miles is rare and impressive anywhere in the contiguous United States.

Description: “A magnificent mountain estate incorporating 7,200 s.f. of luxury amenities in a design that emphasizes the rustic sophistication of a gentlemen’s ranch and the gracious indoor outdoor flow of a home that is at once intimate and accommodating for friends and family, yet spacious and organized for philanthropic events and large parties. A smart and ADA-accessible floorplan includes all family and entertainment spaces on one level. Grand south-facing terraces and lawns extend the living areas into the surrounding natural environment, facilitating a seamless indoor outdoor relationship. A 2,700 s.f. barn accommodates up to four horses for easy access to miles of private equestrian trails and thousands of acres of public land.”
