TrailsEdge on Mount Snow presents a rare opportunity to own a luxury ski on and off home at the edge of the Green Mountain National Forest. Sharing the same ski trail as the distinctive homes at Snowdance Village, TrailsEdge provides a premiere yet secluded location on Vermont’s closest major ski resort.
TrailsEdge offers luxuriously appointed townhomes featuring thirty-five hundred square feet of living space, with four bedrooms plus loft and four and one half baths. Each open design features a gourmet kitchen with a large breakfast bar, spacious dining room, and expansive great room with dramatic 18 foot high vaulted ceilings.
All owners will enjoy membership privileges at the Grand Summit Resort Hotel’s fitness center, spa and pool for their first year of ownership with the option to renew the membership thereafter.
TrailsEdge is located on the original site of the former “North Branch Club”. Built in the mid sixties, it was the first ski on and off “Hotel Condominium” created in the entire Northeast. Developed by a close-knit group of Fairfield County, Ivy League college friends, its location was carefully chosen after an extensive search of ski on and off locations throughout New England. At the height of its grandeur, the North Branch Club included a full-service restaurant, indoor pool, saunas, and even a tanning salon. Its residents included dignitaries and celebrities such as the former Shah of Iran’s wife, and the wife of legendary comedian, Buddy Hackett.
We compliment the original founders of the North Branch Club in their efforts to find the perfect ski on and off location. We are proud to be involved in its re-development as “TrailsEdge,” continuing to allow a select few the rare opportunity to enjoy the beauty and convenience of this choice location.
“Our first season at Trails Edge was magical! Our unit was the perfect winter retreat with such a fantastic trail side location. We enjoyed the amenities and beauty of our townhouse almost as much as the spectacular snow!”
“Trails Edge provides for my family the perfect balance of the beauty, privacy and seclusion of the Green National Forest with the benefits of ski – in and ski – out convenience. The Trails Edge town homes are large yet homey and provide accommodations for a very large group or multiple families. The floor layouts also allow for different activities to occur simultaneously without interruption or intrusion.”
“My experience at Trails Edge — from the development phase to the present — has been excellent. During the construction phase the builder, Don Klepacki, was extremely responsive to questions and concerns we had regarding not only the town home itself but the surroundings, including ski-in ski-out convenience, parking accommodations etc. Modifications to plans were made to address my specific needs and changes were incorporated timely and seamlessly.”
“As new units are built and additional families move join we look forward being a part of the growing ski community hidden right off the ski trails of Mount Snow.”
