Cordillera is an upscale resort set on just over 7,000 acres in Vail Valley, with four distinctly different "communities." Each one features a wide range of recreational opportunities including hiking, fishing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The following is a brief description of the four communities of Cordillera. "The Divide" emulates the great mountain villages of Europe. It is home to The Short Course (a 10-hole golf course designed by Dave Pelz) and the Grouse-on-the-Green Irish Pub. It also houses The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera. "The Ranch" was formerly the site of a true working ranch and encompasses gentle ridges, meadows and stands of mature forest. The Ranch features The Mountain Course, designed by Hale Irwin, and the Timber Hearth Grille, located in the Mountain Course Clubhouse. The Ranch also provides family fun at the Trailhead, a "country club for kids." "The Summit," which is bordered by national forest land represents the pinnacle of Colorado living. It is home to a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course as well as Whittaker's General Store and The Summit Club, a recreational retreat. "Cordillera Valley Club" is the fourth Cordillera community and is located at a lower elevation than the others, surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks and picturesque foothills. It features The Valley Course, designed by Tom Fazio, as well as the Chapparal Restaurant.

Cordillera Weather & Climate

Northwestern Colorado is mostly mountainous, with some desert lands. Generally, the area has a highland mountain climate. Having the highest average elevation in the United States, combined with complex topography, results in dramatic climate changes from place to place. A general rule of thumb is the higher the elevation, the lower the temperature with an increase in precipitation. Northwest Colorado has a distinct four-season climate with cold, snowy winters and mild summers. In years when snow cover is heavy at high elevations, or when there is a sudden warming in the spring at high elevations, flooding may be a problem. Thunderstorms are possible in spring and summer. Hail is also common in the northwest part of the state. Autumn means crisp, dry days with lots of sunshine and cool nights.
