The lake at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club is a great place to paddleboard or kayak, practice fly casting or sit on the dock and take in the scenery.

The mountain lifestyle sought in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is different for everyone. At luxury development, Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club, primary and second homeowners enjoy a choice when it comes to high-end amenities.

While some desire slope-side access to the world-class Champagne Powder at Steamboat Ski Resort, which borders the development, others prefer the challenge of teeing it up at Catamount Golf Club, conveniently connected next door, via cart path.

Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club owners have access to a private, 1.5 mile section of the trout-rich Yampa River.

Avid anglers may seek to wet a line in the trout-rich water of the Yampa River, while others prefer to watch the days pass from the deck taking in the spectacular views of the surrounding Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

Trout-Rich Water Awaits

The concierge at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club can arrange a professional, local fly-fishing guide who can help with casting technique and the best fly selection for the day.

Spillane – a Steamboat native and three-time Olympic silver medalist in Nordic Combined – has more than three decades of experience fishing the area and has been named his hometown’s best guide.
