Countdown to Christmas
It’s Telluride Ski Resort time again! The garland is up, the snow is coming down, just in time to ring in the holiday season and the new year. Where will you be taking your ski vacation this year? Opening day on Thanksgiving Day at the ski resort was an amazing success, and the Holiday Prelude is just around the corner. What are you going to ask Santa for this year? A sweet new pair of skis or snowboard lessons? How about a gift certificate to the Cosmo Restaurant or Allred’s? Santa and some of his reindeer will be in Mountain Village December 14th – 15th for the Holiday Prelude. There will also be free ice skating! Bring the kids and kick off the holiday right with family sledding. Christmas is only 3 weeks away! Enjoy the holiday fun as Mountain Village, CO is transformed into the North Pole – complete with pictures with Santa, holiday crafts, hot cocoa & popcorn, holiday movies and an adult cash bar and lounge.

Noel Night in Telluride is Wednesday December 4th, and the Telluride shopping scene is ramped up for the holidays. Holiday sales are everywhere! Many of the retailers take significant percentages off and offer some pretty sweet deals. Special holiday offers combined with drawings for additional savings make it a fun interactive night. The Telluride Fire Festival is December 6th-8th , an annual nonprofit event that made its debut January 2015. Much like Burning Man, the annual celebration of community, art and fire brings larger-than-life fire art to the Telluride region, allowing people to see and interact with this magical flammable festival in the cool mountain snow.
The Choral Society Winter Sing takes place at 7 PM on Friday, December 13th and 4 PM on Sunday, December 15th at Christ Church and is sure to get you in the spirit. Devoted Telluride locals dedicate hours of rehearsal to bring echoes of the season through beautiful music. This year’s 2019 Wintersing show Light of the Season, features conductor Rhonda Muckerman, Susan Ensor on piano and Alan Bradley on percussion. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.telluridechoralsociety.org/

The SAF Holiday Concert Series will take place December 27th-31st. The New Year’s Eve Torch Light Parade and Fireworks on Main Street will help ring in the New Year, welcome 2020!
Telluride Real Estate Corp is excited to be preparing for our holiday party at the National restaurant in Telluride, a favorite of many of our team. Perhaps it’s its close proximity to the Buck, perhaps it’s the amazing food (try the shrimp), perhaps it’s the opportunity for our team to get together to celebrate each other’s successes, the ups and downs of real estate business in the Rocky Mountains, and our corporate family. It is the experience of this team that makes them great, if only it were appropriate to repeat some of the stories of TD Smith, Steve Catsman and Stiff Patterson and Steve Hilbert from their Telluride heyday. Our TREC veterans have experienced the town of Telluride like no other and have helped it grow, investing from the beginning in both downtown Telluride and the Mountain Village. TREC played a large role in the development of the real estate around the Telluride ski resort. Participating in both the vision and design was important to the early adopters – TREC team members that could see the future of the #1 Ski Resort in America taking shape. The next phase for Mountain Village development is La Montagne currently in the conceptual planning phase.
What’s next for 2020? Be on the look out for the Q4 Telluride Real Estate Market Report, detailing the stats from the year, culminating in what looks to be a very strong end of year showing. Now is the time to investigate real estate, plan your second home or even vacation or retirement getaway. The holidays remind us of what’s important and oftentimes invigorates hope or rekindles dreams we once had. Is your happy place swishing through fresh powder? Or curling up by a fire with family and friends? What does a beautiful mountain view or deeply inhaling the crisp mountain air do for you?
