Telluride Peaks Resort and Spa Working on Improvements

High up above Telluride, Colorado, sits one of the most iconic North American resorts, the Peaks Resort and Spa.  Owned by the Telluride Ski and golf Company since July 2015, the property has gone through some changes for its Summer 2016 opening.  The biggest change is its marquee Restaurant, now rebranded Altezza, which means height in Italian.  The menu is Italian inspired but will feature such Colorado staples as striped bass and elk carpaccio.


The staff has been changing too with Ricardo Ramirez the new General Manager , Somer Perez  a James Beard rising star award winner,  as the new Food and Beverage Director, and Jason Bayle as the Executive Chef.  The Spa has seen its first phase of a face lift completed as well.  The golf Course pro shop is remodeled and the Ski and golf Company is in the midst of building a new practice facility.

The Divide Ranch Golf Course is Open

Yesterday I played the Divide Ranch and golf Club course high over Ridgway, Colorado.  At just 45 minutes from Telluride, this course offers a nice change of pace from the Telluride course, which is slated to open for the season on May 27th.  In addition, this course is open a few weeks earlier and later than Telluride, due to its lower elevation and warmer climate.

Divide #9 Green Divide #10 Tee Divide #18 to Clubhouse

The conditions are good for early season and the mountain views with the fresh white tops make it challenging to focus on golf!  There are some excellent values as well.  Lots start at $16,900 on 47 Puma Lane and homes start at $425,000 at 115 Woodchuck Place.  ($170 per square foot- well below replacement value)

The drive home is pretty spectacular, too!

Telluride Town Park Stage is Done!

Tomorrow, May 17th, the official ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 3:30 pm on the new and improved Telluride Town Park Stage.

New Stage From Wiebe 2

New amenities include permanent speaker towers, a larger stage performing area, large side wings for easier storage and loan in and outs, and although not 100% complete until a second phase, multiple dressing rooms, bathrooms and production offices underneath!  Impressive!   This year alone we will see many major events starting with Mountainfilm over Memorial Day weekend.  Other major festivals include Telluride Blues and Brews, Telluride Bluegrass, Telluride Jazz and The Ride.

The look and feel is certainly bigger, but also the same as the old Fred Shellman Stage

Our festivals have become so popular you may need to buy a house to ensure you have lodging !  Find it here

Telluride April 2016 Real Estate Sales

Telluride, Colorado April 2016 real estate  numbers are in.  As compared to 2015 the Telluride real estate market, which encompasses all of San Miguel County, April was down 29% in dollar volume, yet up 7% in the number of transactions.  Two markets that cooled a little, house sold in town, which is due to a lack of inventory, plus increasing price points, and Mountain Village Condominiums.  The increase in the number of deals getting done leads me to believe that what ever deals are left are getting bought and locals are buying lower priced properties.

Hiking Telluride’s Jud Wiebe

Today, May 12th, I took a lunch break to hike Telluride’s most famous trail, the Jud Wiebe.  Is spring finally here?  Could be, but as I hiked the trail, noticing how the lack of aspen leaves really opened up the spectacular scenery, I saw skiers coming down the Plunge!
