Hall and Hall Auctions will auction Slate Creek Ranch on July 25 at The Steamboat Grand Hotel. The 1,363-acre mountain property (1,118 acres deeded plus 245 acres BLM) borders the western edge of the historic ski town of Steamboat Springs. Additional neighbors include the massive Routt National Forest, which extends north into Wyoming and encompasses 2 million acres. Slate Creek has traditionally been run as a cow/calf operation and supports 100 head year-round. In addition to two miles of frontage on both sides of Slate Creek, the ranch enjoys exceptional water rights that date back to the nineteenth century. Additionally, the ranch’s 38 percent interest in the Woodchuck Ditch Company is presumed to be the largest single ownership block. All mineral rights are believed to be intact, and the Seller will convey any and all appurtenant owned minerals with the ranch.
