Maroon Creek Club's 53 home sites are interspersed along the base of Tiehack / Buttermilk Mountain, one of the four ski mountains making up the world famous Aspen / Snowmass Ski Resort in Aspen, Colorado.
The Maroon Creek Club Subdivision is surrounded by Tom Fazio's 18-hole championship golf course, making this one of Aspen's newest and most intimate golf course neighborhooods. The luxury homes within this pristine development have unparalled access to some of Aspen's most popular recreational areas.
One of the most sought after locations within this Subdivision, is Pfister Drive... In 1953, Art Pfister began a new corporation with Friedl Pfeifer to develop Buttermilk Mountain, known for its 470 acres of wide open and gentle ski terrain. Buttermilk / Tiehack caters to beginners and families alike. Buttermilk Mountain has grown tremendously since its opening 1958/1959 ski season. Initially opening with two chair lifts and a top-of-the mountain restaurant, Buttermilk Mountain now has 8 chairlifts, 44 trails and 2,030 feet of vertical terrain.
Home Owners who live in the Maroon Creek Club Subdivision are perhaps some of the most fortunate beneficiaries of recent improvements made by the Aspen Skiing Co. No other subdivision offers private access to Tiehack Mountain's new, $7 Million high-speed quad chairlift. This new lift represents only a small fraction of the Aspen Skiing Company's capital improvements that have been made during the past year.
The world-class skiing, the unsurpassed summertime events, and the historic draw of Aspen itself, help Aspen to maintain a consistent rank as one of the top ski destinations in the World.
Many of Maroon Creek Club's luxury properties have Ski in/ Ski out access to the Tiehack side of Buttermilk Mountain (the more advanced and "quieter" side of Buttermilk). Within minutes of walking out the front door, residents of this exclusive neighborhood can be buckled into their skis, on the lift, and enjoying this excellent ski mountain.
The Maroon Creek Club Subdivision is an outstanding location during the summer months as well. Located within walking distance of the majestic pedestrian bridge that crosses high above the Maroon Creek river, Maroon Creek Club home owners have easy access to the Aspen Recreational Center. This state of the art fitness center offers such amenities as Indoor Lap and Kiddie Pool, a lazy river, diving board, steam room, sauna, a 2 story water slide, tennis courts, a 32 foot climbing tower, batting cages, an NHL regulation size ice-skating rink, and more!
The base of Tiehack Mountain is also located on the Oregon Trail. This is one of the best, advanced cross country ski and mountain bike trails in Western Colorado. The famous Government Trail is a classic mountain bike trail that runs between Aspen and Snowmass Village, and also serves as the course for the popular "Golden Leaf Half Marathon", a 13 mile race that takes place during the height of the Aspen leaf color change in September of every year.
With excellent access to national forest, lift serviced terrain, superior trails, and world-class golfing, the Maroon Creek Club subdivision is the perfect place for the family oriented, outdoor lifestyle.
Located only five minutes from downtown Aspen, the Maroon Creek Club Subdivision provides country club living with privacy and private access to the best of what Colorado has to offer.

My take on this is that it is early in the year and 1 month doesn’t show a trend. The general consensus among brokers is that February was generally a busy month, so it’ll be interesting to see what the market does as the winter season comes to an end.
Another interesting note is that although the average prices were down compared to 2011, the dollar volume was up, meaning that the total number of sales increased over last year. It’s a buyer’s market. Homes that are priced right are showing and selling. Many over-priced properties are not receiving offers and generally are taking a much longer time to sell.
