Sadly, this may be my final Active Rain post.  Too many local Realtors for not enough opportunity.  This is an amazing home located on the Mountain Course of Cordillera only 20 minutes to Vail.  At over 5,000 sq. ft. and situated on about an acre, the privacy is senational.  Only a few years old,...
One of the nicest 4 bedroom penthouses in Landmark Lodge just closed for $3,550,000.00.

Located on the Vail Golf Course, this wonderful home just came back on the market. Listed at $5,500,000.00, it is a great option for the buyer looking to spend time in Vail in the Summer as well as skinng in Vail over the winter.
Although my daughter didn't qualify for the High School State Ski Championships held in Beaver Creek yesterday, I just wanted to pass on a cool photo.  Vail Valley skiing is great! There are great Real Estate opportunities as well.
