In the later part of 2008, after more than 16 years, two of the longest running, locally-owned vacation rental companies in Telluride, Alpine Lodging & Real Estate and Telluride Mountain Lodging merged to form the most experienced Telluride vacation rental management company in Telluride. Immediately after this union, the opportunity presented itself to acquire another of Telluride's most trusted vacation rental companies, ResortQuest Telluride. By April 2009, Telluride Alpine Lodging became the largest vacation rental firm in Telluride.
In late 2009, it became apparent that there was a gap in the Telluride market for quality property management services. As a result, a partnership was forged with Sea to Ski Premier Home Management, based in Park City, UT. Sea to Ski had been successfully offering property care and concierge services in Park City since 2004. With an effective business model, Sea to Ski was ready to expand and enter a like market in Telluride. Combining their expertise from the property management business with the seasoned people and processes already in place at Telluride Alpine Lodging, it was natural to not just add property management services but also launch a luxury rental business. Thus a new luxury division, Sea to Ski Telluride, was born.
In later years, Telluride Alpine Lodging assumed management of more properties, including Bear Creek Lodge, Manitou Lodge and Hotel Columbia. We cater to the needs of more than 13,000 Telluride visitors every year through an inventory of over 400 lodging properties, ranging from value to luxury. With our local and experienced owners and staff, we take pride in offering vast knowledge of Telluride as well as a diverse inventory of lodging in Telluride and Mountain Village.
In 2015, Telluride Alpine Lodging expanded its operation to include another destination, Sun Valley, ID. Alpine Lodging Sun Valley offers a portfolio of over 100 vacation rentals comprised of condos and homes in Sun Valley, Ketchum, Elkhorn, and Warm Springs. Now with two locations, the decision was made to officially change our name to Alpine Lodging Telluride allowing for future growth outside the area.
Alpine Lodging Telluride continues to have a local ownership group and benefits from the depth of experience from its combined management, sales, and guest service staff. Alpine Lodging Telluride now has over 60 years of combined experience in the hospitality business, all under the same local ownership.
