Big Sky Resort is ranked number 2 among the best ski resorts in the U.S. according to a new ranking.

TurnKey Vacation Rentals pulled together information on more than 260 ski resorts in the United States, focusing specifically on resorts with over 15 named trails.

The top ranking resorts are based on average ticket price, total number of trails and lifts, vertical drop, length of season, average snowfall, and average monthly Google search volume for each specific resort.

The top three Resorts in the US according to TurnKey’s study are:

Mammoth Mountain, California
Big Sky Resort, Montana
Snowbird, Utah

“I am a third generation Montanan with a no nonsense and personal approach to real estate.”

Telluride just received its first big snow of the season and the mountains are blanketed with powder marking a great start to the snow year. The quality terrain and beautiful scenery are unmatched and the lack of lift lines is the cherry on top. Telluride Ski Resort continues to enjoy top marks from national publications for these very reasons. The ski area officially opens every year on Thanksgiving, but opens the day prior as a benefit for one of the local organizations. The cost for everyone on that day (even season pass holders) is $25 and goes to a good cause.

Telluride Real Estate Market Update

San Miguel County is having a banner year for number of sales and dollar volume. The most recent numbers through September show dollar volume up 40% and number of transactions up 18% over last year, which was the previous strongest year since the peak in ’07/’08. Even though the market is very active and strong, amazing opportunities are still available. I can help point them out. Please reach out to discuss all available options.
