Why did you come to Colorado?

My boyfriend (now husband) was offered his dream job at Telluride Ski Resort. I was very excited to make the move, as I’ve always wanted to live in the state where my mother was born and where I spent many summers as a kid.

What is your favorite place and why?

I love Telluride! It has so much culture for such a small, understated town. With all of our festivals and events, amazing restaurants and the gondola acting as public transportation, Telluride has a big city feel while being one of the most beautiful little mountain towns in the world.

What do you want our guests to know about your favorite destination that they may not know?

Telluride consists of two separate towns connected by the free gondola. There is the Town of Telluride (which is the historic mining village located in a box canyon) and the Town of Mountain Village (which is the heart of the ski resort, incorporated in the 1990’s).

What is your favorite activity in Colorado?

This is a tough one… but I have to go with hiking, especially when the wildflowers are in bloom. No matter which trail you take, you are in for a treat.

Why should our clients have their group event in Colorado?

With so many different things to do in every destination, there is something for everyone in Colorado. Not to mention, the scenery is always breathtaking, winter or summer!

Why should they hire Realize Colorado?

The Realize Team will work hard to make sure your event is seamless from beginning to end. We truly care about creating a memorable experience for each of our clients and want to share our gorgeous state with you!
