Telluride Ski Resort Nabs 
Condé Nast Travelers’ Top Spot for the Fifth Time

For the fifth time in six years, Telluride has been named the #1 ski resort in North America in Condé Nast Traveler’s annual reader survey.

Rising above the rest once again, Telluride remained on the summit of the annual ranking for its jaw-dropping surroundings, world-class skiing, dining and lodging, and experiences that are simply second to none. With 148 trails, 19 lifts and a one-of-a-kind free pedestrian gondola, the acclaimed resort is once again recognized for its unmatched scenery, peaceful atmosphere, unique experiences and, notably, the authentic community of Telluride.

Telluride’s signature dining choices are world-renowned, with acclaimed chefs and wine sommeliers at the helm. Particular standouts are the exquisite trifecta of Allred’s, Bon Vivant and Alpino Vino—the highest elevation fine-dining restaurant in North America at nearly 12,000 feet. The real question is whether you’ll have time to fully immerse in our foodie paradise.

Featured lodging includes: The Fairmont Heritage Place, Franz Klammer Lodge, the Inn at Lost Creek, Mountain Lodge and The Peaks Resort and Spa. 

“We are deeply honored to earn this distinction once again from the readers of Condé Nast Traveler. The biggest praise belongs to our exceptional team and the community of Telluride who work tirelessly to provide unparalleled experiences for all of our guests.” — Bill Jensen, CEO of Telluride Ski Resort

The Grove on Mainstreet Proposes Mixed-Use Development to Provide a Warm and Welcoming Sense of Place in Parker

PARKER, CO – (December 13, 2017) – Parker Mainstreet Partners, LLC., is pleased to announce The Grove on Mainstreet, a proposed mixed-use development to be located in the area known as the West End of Mainstreet in Parker. The project is planned to feature curated retailers and restaurants on a spacious public plaza, accompanied by a 51-room upscale boutique hotel situated over specialty restaurants and shops.

The Grove will be a downtown westside anchor creating a pedestrian-friendly environment that supports the mix of retail and restaurants, seasonal events and a community gathering place including an inviting fire-pit area, which is envisioned by the Town of Parker’s Master Plan. Public art and streetscape (street trees, lighting and furnishings) will be emphasized as common threads to tie together the downtown’s two distinct districts, the West End and Old Town.

“The Grove on Mainstreet will be a positive addition to the Parker community,” said Dennis Houston, President and CEO of the Parker Chamber of Commerce. “We are excited for the expansion of the Entertainment District and the development of an environment that supports a welcoming and enjoyable gathering place.”
