Large Home on the Skyway Skiway Between Peak 8 and Downtown
Lomax Estates are homes for sale in a small, 7-lot neighborhood of large, custom-built single family homes close to the Skyway Skiway and located near the Four O’clock Run. These homes lie along a quiet street called Lomax. The name is a reference to a former mining claim.
All Lomax Estates lots kept the pine trees that were the sole occupants of this uphill rolling land between downtown Breckenridge and the base of Peak 8 prior to the construction of these estates and their neighbors.

Development Of Lomax Estates
When the Breckenridge Ski Area began in the 1960s, everyone skied the last couple of miles from Peak 8 into downtown, usually along Sawmill Creek that flowed gently off Shock Hill. Homes have since filled in the ski-hill side of Breckenridge like an elaborate tapestry. However, the same end-of-the-day route remains and is called Four O’clock Run. It weaves between homes and condos, links up with the Snowflake lift and gives a lot of folks ski-in and ski-out lodging.
At the crest of Shock Hill, Four O’clock follows the creek, but since 2005, skiers can make a northerly turn over to the Skyway Skiway which crosses Ski Hill Road, descend Shock Hill and then cross on foot under Park Avenue which brings them to the downtown terminus of the gondola.
High Style on Large Lots / Ski-In and Ski-Out
Lomax Estates are a mountain contemporary style, recently built on pieces of private land that remained after Vail Resorts and the town collaborated to build the gondola and skyway.
Since the millennium, home design in Breckenridge has leaned toward big logs, recycled wood beams, wide plank flooring and expansive interiors that aren’t predictable from the cozy cabin exteriors. This is what is likely the style of the estates charmingly set here in the former Lomax Placer.
