telluride: #1 in north america for the third year running
For the third year in a row, Conde Nast's readers have voted Telluride the #1 ski resort in North America. Add this to our #4 ranking in the West by Ski Magazine (#1 in Colorado), our 4th friendliest town in the United States ranking (up from 8th last year), also by Conde Nast readers, our Top 10 Ski Resorts in The World ranking by Snow Magazine (one of only 2 US resorts) and our inclusion in the Top 10 Ski Resorts in North America by Forbes, and it's clear: Telluride is a destination simply not to be missed.
Telluride's real estate marketing is heating up as well: Our recovery from the great recession began in earnest in 2013 and momentum was further enhanced in 2014 with a gross dollar sales increase of 48%. As always, the market segment leader that has become a catalyst for the balance of the region was the Historic Town of Telluride where supply is limited in this authentic Victorian mining turned ski resort community. Values have not only returned to pre-recession levels, but have exceeded those before the downturn. Those circumstances have spread into surrounding market segments as second home investors seek “perceived better buys” thereby enhancing the overall market place.
