Storm King Ranch Colorado: Few indeed are spectacular Colorado mountain ranches that remain large, honest-to-goodness cattle and horse operations, but Storm King Ranch just south of Montrose is a rare jewel in that category. Nestled in the foothills of the stunning San Juan Mountains, Storm King Ranch covers over 12,000 total acres (6,600+/- deeded) of well-watered and diverse habitat that is custom-made for big game, cattle, and horses alike. With remarkable ranching improvements, luxurious homes, and paved proximity to both Montrose and Telluride, Storm King Ranch could well be a once in a lifetime opportunity in the Colorado ranching market.
With elevations ranging from approximately 6500 to 9000 feet, Storm King Ranch supports everything from lush mountain meadows to spruce and fir forest, with extensive stands of oak brush and aspen in between. The views of the San Juan Mountains make scenic values here second to none, and the ranch is a calendar-worthy blaze of color in the fall. Recreation both on and off the ranch is diverse and almost endless, with hiking, horseback riding, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, hunting, and fishing all close at hand. World class downhill skiing is only slightly more than an hour away at Telluride, and Ouray, an ice-climber’s paradise, is even closer.
