Managed by Gore Creek Properties, the Ark is an opportunity for you to enjoy one of Vail’s original and most historic houses for a fraction of the cost. You can have a ski-in, ski-out home that sets on the mountain just below Lower Bear Tree, where the accomplished skier can ski down to the deck. Skiing from the house down to the gondola starts with a brisk climb up the steps from the deck, after which you can traverse and ski down to Lower Lindsay’s, to the gondola, and to Vail Village. Skiers and boarders, can also make a short walk down Forest Road to the heated driveway that leads to the gondola and the Village. During your stay at the Ark you will enjoy a Swiss chalet style home built by one of Vail’s Founding Families where the US SKI Team, 10th Mountain Division and the Vail Foundation have been honored. The house can sleep 12 comfortably and has 4 bathrooms and 2 powder rooms. There is a large indoor hot tub and a fun basement room with ping pong and fooseball tables. The bedrooms all have King beds that can split into twin extra long beds if required. There is the bunk room which of course always remains the bunk room! There is parking on the street below the house for 4-5 cars, depending on the size of the vehicles and the amount of snow. Any re-occurrence of a viral pandemic that causes the mountain to shut down will result in a full refund less a $100 admin fee. All of our properties are professionally cleaned and sanitized before and after every arrival and housekeeping is available on request for an additional fee.
