Rediscover Colorado at her best. Adventures abound in Colorado – many of which are waiting to be discovered far away from the busy I-70 corridor. With a major interstate transporting skiers through central Colorado to ultra-expensive and excessively popularized ski slopes, the I-70 stretch has become overcrowded, overpriced and overhyped. But a short drive to the south reveals an abundance of outdoor excitement without the crowds and for a fraction of the cost.
Within a relaxing scenic drive to the southwest of Denver, a world exists which cannot be imagined by most visitors to Colorado, and which many Coloradoans themselves forget about. This quiet location near Rio Grande National Forest includes a championship golf course, unrivaled fly fishing, off-roading, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing – not to mention a ski slope boasting the most snow of any ski resort in Colorado (38 feet per year).
At Riverside at Rio Grande Club, outdoor adventures are an everyday offering. Not only is the area teeming with activities, but also low in crowds and cost. You’ll experience lift ticket prices that are approximately 50% lower than those in the busier slopes to the north. You won’t find the crowds either.
Owners of property at Riverside at Rio Grande Club enjoy a side of Colorado few people see. Rarely can a location boast so many convenient activities such a distance apart. Riverside is only a short 20-minute drive away from Wolf Creek ski area. The adjacent Rio Grande National Forest contains 1300 miles of trails, the majority of which allow off-roading vehicles.
Riverside owners also appreciate the private access to the longest and wildest stretch of Gold Medal water in Colorado, 20 miles of one of the most under-fished rivers in the state: the South Fork of the Rio Grande. Surrounding the area is an additional 500 miles of tributaries and creeks, along with many mountain lakes, a true dream for fly-fishing enthusiasts.
Those searching for the best in mountain golfing, Riverside is a dream come true. The 18-hole championship course was given 6 stars by Golf Digest who also ranked Riverside at Rio Grande Club #6 in the Top 10 Best New Upscale Courses. With the golf course surrounded by millions of acres of wilderness, Riverside is an oasis from the busyness of the world. Located 8500 feet above sea level, just imagine how far the ball will fly!
