651 Pfister Drive, Aspen, Colorado Offered at $36 Million
Designer and founder of Bowden Homes, Bob Bowden, delivered a true mountain modern home to his clients who were in search of a clean, contemporary canvas built with indigenous materials. Other homes on the market at the time were Malibu modern or Miami modern, Bowden said, but the homeowners were looking for an authentic mountain minimalist design. Inspired by Aspen’s mining and skiing history, Bowden used exposed steel and envisioned a rustic ski chalet utilizing natural materials such as wood and stone. Constructed into the hillside overlooking the 11th hole of the Maroon Creek Club, this estate comes partially furnished with custom pieces totaling $2 million. Beneath the main level is an entire spa floor complete with a jetted tub, huge steam room and a massage parlor.

9806 N Summit View Drive, Park City, Utah Offered at $17.9 Million
This mountainside home equally combats the cold with its warm and welcoming design as does it embrace the snow with its prevalent ski-in/ski-out accommodations. Predominantly a ski home, the builders initially recruited readers of Ski magazine to provide their input and contribute ideas to its construction. Some of the luxurious ski amenities include a prep room with boot warmers and driers and a ski-in bar beside the heated pool, which maintains a 104-degree Fahrenheit setting. As impressively constructed and outfitted as this home is, it is equally as cozy and accommodating to both large groups and intimate gatherings. Impressively perched at the top of Little Baldy Peak, the home is connected to Mountaineer run via a private ski bridge. For days without skiing on the agenda, 4,500 square feet of decking allow one to enjoy the outdoors all the same.
