What You'll Love About Cordillera
Cordillera is a private mountain community in Colorado, a place for beautiful mountain resorts and mountain view homes. Conveniently located and reachable by both Denver & Eagle/Vail airport, this one-of-a-kind mountain community extends through thousands of acres of open space, native pine and aspen forests, sprawling meadows and crystal mountain streams.
Cordillera is home to herds of elk and deer that browse through fields of mountain sage and wildflowers...its ponds and rivers teem with native trout...and its sky with soaring eagles. Cordillera's pristine natural beauty is what brought you to Colorado...but you will stay for much, much more.
Have We Mentioned the Golf Courses?
Cordillera Valley Club, The Divide, The Ranch and The Summit are the four golf course communities that make up Cordillera. As the eagle flies, Cordillera's private communities stretch over 13 miles.
Cordillera Valley Club
Dramatic “painted” rock foothills and towering, snow-capped peaks combine to create the high mountain desert setting for this community. Homes here rely on stone, rough-sawn wood siding and covered porches to convey their western personalities.
Designed to emulate the architectural character of Europe’s mountain villages, homes on The Divide capitalize on hammered iron, stucco and slate roofs to create a signature look. Residents on The Divide stand in awe of the towering peaks and plunging valleys that surround the community and welcome the proximity to Cordillera's Short Course.
Formerly a working ranch, The Ranch at Cordillera relies on gentle ridges, undulating meadows and stands of mature forest to set its tone. Residents within its distinctive enclaves draw their designs from architecture whose early American West character is defined by logs, timber and stone.
The Summit represents the pinnacle, a perfect mountain setting, and offers compelling 360 degree views of the Gore and Sawatch Ranges, New York Mountain, Seven Hermits, Castle Peak and the Flat Tops from many of its 2,700 pristine acres. Residents here benefit from unequaled privacy and generous open space. They also welcome living on a parcel of land that borders three million acres of National Forest.
If You're Eager to Get Away from It All...
The location of the community itself is perfect for those who enjoy the feeling of getting 'away from it all' in a private mountain retreat, yet Cordillera is surprisingly accessible. The shops, restaurants, post office, banks, theater, and other businesses in Edwards, as well as the Interstate 70 interchange, are all within a few minutes of the entrance to Cordillera. The Village-to-Village ski experience of Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead also a short distance away.
Cordillera offers year-round opportunities to participate in clubs, classes, events, outings and tournaments, all in the company of the finest people in the world.
In addition, carefully conceived recreational venues, gracious hospitality facilities, and luxurious health and wellness services co-exist with over 7,000 acres of land, nearly 65 percent of which is dedicated open space. Part of the appeal of Cordillera is its respect for nature and the mountains surrounding the development.
The combination of privacy and convenience are exceptionally well done and make Cordillera an incredible experience for its homeowners and visitors.
The Club at Cordillera
Nicklaus, Irwin, Fazio and Pelz combine their award-winning design skills with Cordillera’s world-class amenities and member programs to create a club experience that is unequaled in Colorado. Each designer, faced with the challenge to build golf courses that would accentuate the natural mountain landscape, clearly accomplished his goals.
As a property owner at Cordillera, you are entitled to consideration for membership in The Club at Cordillera. Tailored to the lifestyle of our members, the Signature Golf Membership and Social Membership offer families and their guests the right to use the golf and social facilities, which are singularly special in the Vail Valley.
The residents of Cordillera have also formed several special interest groups including an art program, summer motorcycle club, and a high alpine gardening club.
Enjoy Indoor and Outdoor Amenities Galore!
Enhancing The Club at Cordillera experience are amenities such as The Trailhead, a 10-acre family recreation facility, the Nordic Center, the Equestrian Center and The Summit Club, a 10,000 square foot recreational retreat.
Don't Forget Fine Dining
Dining options in Cordillera range from relaxed and casual, to elegant and gourmet with something for every taste. Patrons to Cordillera’s restaurants look forward to The Summit Restaurant, which tempts guests with tasty soups and sandwiches, Chaparral with its sunny deck and fabulous view of New York Mountain, and contemporary American cuisine with a focus on local ingredients at TimberHearth Grille.
Fore! Golfing in Cordillera
The four unique communities of Cordillera are united by a group of magnificent homeowners and members who share a love of golf and a passion for boundless year around recreational opportunities. The scope of recreational pursuits at Cordillera is unmatched anywhere else in the Rocky Mountains.
Cordillera is home to four spectacular courses from the world's great golf course designers—Nicklaus, Fazio, Pelz and Irwin. Our courses extend from the "Eagle Valley" floor to the "Summit." The views are breathtaking; the play is stimulating; the service, facilities, and instructional programs are all 5 star and state-of-the-art. At Cordillera, you will find golf heaven!
Enjoy Hiking, Biking, Skiing and Fishing
For visitors who come to Colorado to experience the outdoors and participate in year-round activities, Cordillera is an extraordinary environment. There are over 17 miles of groomed and marked hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing trails, and tennis courts.
Wind your way through Cordillera's 7000 acres and miles of beautifully maintained private trails that give the hiking or biking enthusiast the freedom to explore the magnificent Colorado countryside. Many of these trails adjoin and enter the National Forest, opening up another million or so acres to explore.
In the winter, Cordillera turns into a winter wonderland. Private daily shuttles take you to Vail or Beaver Creek; members enjoy weekly ski clinics. Cordillera's Nordic Center offers miles of manicured trails maintained for cross country skiing and snow shoeing, with rental equipment readily available; and, finally, homeowners and members have access to a private ice skating rink that is lighted for night time use.
Cordillera is one of the very few communities in the West that owns its own piece of private river heaven. This gives Cordillera homeowners and members private access to almost two miles along both sides of the Eagle River for year round, world-class trout fishing; as well as spring and summer white water rafting. You can do all this on your own; or, you can use the services of our private guides.
For the Athletes, Equestrians and Tennis Buffs...
Cordillera cares about the shape you're in. We have a state-of-the-art workout facility and swimming pool in every neighborhood Clubhouse where you can work out on your own or join in one of the many classes that cover everything from pilates, to spin, to yoga, to guided hikes or snowshoeing.
In the heart of Cordillera sits a spectacular Equestrian Center that includes indoor/outdoor riding arenas, boarding stalls with daily turn-outs, as well as outdoor living paddocks and training facilities. From the Cordillera riding center, riders can access thousands of acres of National Forest trails that retrace the footsteps of Colorado's earliest pioneers. Interested in day rides? Cordillera's Bearcat Stables offers 1 hour rides to all day excursions.
Cordillera doesn't forget tennis lovers. Whether you like the bounce of all-weather or Hard True, there are courts to please you spread throughout the 4 communities. And there is a professional staff to instruct and arrange matches. Professional service includes private lessons, clinics, weekly events and kids programs.
