The soaring San Juan Mountains frame the serene environment surrounding Glacier, an exclusive mountain sanctuary just minutes north of Durango, Colo., where the grandeur of the past meets the lifestyle of the future.
Combining nearly 1,000 acres of its own with the neighboring three million acres of national forest, Glacier’s private community creates some of the country’s premier residential landscape. Secluded among majestic views, lakes, and streams, the community delights in the protected “visiting” wildlife: elk, golden eagles, deer, bear, hawks, and more. Glacier is certified by the National Audubon Society and takes great pride in its ongoing environmental stewardship initiatives.
While Glacier golfers are heralding the unveiling of their new Mountain Course – designed by Colorado’s legendary golf champion Hale Irwin with golf course architect Todd Schoeder – the community offers an abundance of four-season amenities and activities, most designed with today’s active families in mind.
Besides 36 holes of golf – there’s the Valley Course, too – outdoor experiences available to Glacier members and seasonal travelers include tennis, cross-country skiing, trail hiking, and mountain biking. Junior tennis and golf programs provide age-appropriate outlets, just part of the children’s programs that are conducted by trained professionals, ensuring quality instruction and safety.
Winter brings an equally active sporting lifestyle. The Durango Mountain Resort, known to locals as “Purgatory,” is less than 10 miles to the north; it’s like having private alpine terrain in your own backyard. Uncrowded lift lines and excellent snow conditions complement magical views that make it hard to head down the hill without stopping to take it all in.
The ambience is casual at Glacier, where Western lifestyle sets the unpretentious tone for meeting friends, as well as making new ones.
Homes range from 1,250 square feet to more than 6,500 square feet, with homesites of one-half acre to 2.5-acres. The next generation of real estate product is underway too. A variety of designs and finishes range from Traditional Rustic to Mountain Modern. Turn-key and serviced by White Glove Home Care, members are ensured quality time with family and
friends while in residence, and peace of mind while away.
