At 12,996 ft, Mount Sopris rises high above the valley floor. The land offers expansive views from every hole of our award winning,  Jay Morrish-designed golf course.

The pristine waters of the Crystal River meander through the heart of the course fronting four unique holes of play while offering exciting river carries.
