Crested Butte Area Subdivisions: Prospect Overview of the Prospect Subdivision Look no further for a ski-in and ski-out residence. Prospect offers one of the finest communities in the Rockies. The relatively new subdivision has some of the best homesites still available. It provides the ability to ski right into your mountain home and be relaxing within minutes after a spectacular day of skiing on Mt. Crested Butte. You have access to both Prospect Chairlift and Goldlink Chairlift right outside your door. Although not all lots are ski-in and ski-out, there is a blanket easement on all homesites allowing homeowners to ski across a neighbor’s lot to access their own and many groomed ski-ways providing skier access to the runs and to the lifts. The ski runs around the Prospect Lift and Gold Link Lift are primarily Blue slopes with access to Painterboy and Green slopes. There is also a kids park by the Painterboy lift with various jumps and rails (an a nice place for others to sit and watch). Click here for Mt. Crested Butte Ski Map.

Prospect – A Special District Special Districts in Colorado are local governments (quasi-municipal corporations and political subdivisions of the State of Colorado) established to provide certain necessary public infrastructure, facilities and services to a community. These improvements and services include water, sewer, streets, drainage systems, landscaping, traffic related safety enhancements, park and recreation facilities and services, fire protection, mosquito control, and transportation improvements. There are currently over 1,800 Special Districts in Colorado providing these types of facilities and services to communities throughout the State. Reserve Metropolitan Districts No.1 & No.2 The Districts include the Prospect subdivision located primarily on the East side of the Mt. Crested Butte ski resort. A brief description of the duties of each entity is shown below; additional information for each entity is available within each section. There have been some on-going legal wranglings between some of the homeowners and Tim & Diane Mueller (owners of CBMR) regarding these special districts – primarily around the initial debt and bond of $18M and whether the property taxes levied by the Special District can be used to pay down the debt – or if these funds must come from developer lot sales. Additional info regarding these Districts in Prospect: Reserve Metropolitan Districts – Crested Butte Colorado District No. 1 District No. 1 is responsible for the operations of the public infrastructure, which primarily center around the roads. General operating costs of the District, including road plowing and maintenance, are funded through property taxes received from District No. 2 and Real Estate Transfer Assessment (RETA) from the North Mt. Crested Butte Property Owners Association. Water and sanitary sewer services are provided by the Mt. Crested Butte Water and Sanitation District. District No. 2 District No. 2 levies property taxes to fund both the general operations of District No. 1 as well as payments related to the debt issued by District No. 2 to finance the installation costs of the infrastructure.
