Cordillera

Cordillera Overview


Cordillera is a private mountain community in Colorado, a place for beautiful mountain resorts & 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.

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.

Cordillera Recreation
The 4 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.

Skiing/ Nordic
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.

Mountain Biking/ Hiking
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.

Cordillera Golf Courses
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!
 
Tennis
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.

Fishing/ Rafting
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.

As the eagle flies, Cordillera's private communities stretch over 13 miles.

Cordillera Valley Club   
                                                     
Cordillera Valley Club Metro District provides a public works department to the community which oversees the community's roads and infrastructure. Cordillera Metro District provides governance to Cordillera Valley Club, a golf course community part of the greater Cordillera community located in western Cordillera region, Colorado. 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. Also constructed from stone and rough-hewn timbers, the Clubhouse exudes a rugged yet elegant atmosphere that is enhanced by sun-drenched terraces. Chaparral, a causal club grill, joins a host of amenities to create a coveted lifestyle. Located at a lower elevation, The Cordillera Valley Club offers outdoor enthusiasts a longer playing season, whether it be at the club’s swimming pool, tennis courts or the Tom Fazio- designed golf course. Just 10 minutes from the villages of Vail and Beaver Creek, you are close to skiing, snowboarding, shopping, restaurants and cultural activities.
 
The Divide   
                                                                                                       
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 The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera. The Mobil Four-Star, AAA Four-Diamond retreat features 56 guest rooms, a full service spa and “out-your-door” access to an extensive trail system. Just steps from The Lodge, the Dave Pelz- designed executive Short Course provides great practice and expansive views of the Vail Valley. This living environment is made even more special with gourmet dining at Restaurant Mirador and the casual atmosphere at Grouse on-the-Green, an authentic Irish Pub.
 
The Ranch  
                                                                                                             
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 Trailhead, a two-story log structure, is a wonderful family gathering place that boasts a swimming pool and a children’s center featuring organized activities year-round. A fly-fishing pond, Nordic Center, the 18-hole Hale Irwin designed Mountain Course and 21 miles of hiking and winter sports trails invite outdoor visits, while Timber Hearth Grille welcomes you indoors for casual dining.
 
The Summit                                                                                                                       
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. Complementing this exceptional community are the Jack Nicklaus-designed, 18 hole championship golf course, The Summit Golf Clubhouse and Summit Athletic Facility - places that exist for families to gather, reconnect and enjoy the great outdoors.
