El Nino Strikes Early

More than two feet of snow Monday and Tuesday brought abundant precipitation to Telluride — as well as abundant smiles.

The snow shovelers smiled because they began earning cash in mid-November. The big dogs smiled because they got to romp around in soft, refreshing fluff. The small dogs smiled because the cold convinced owners to cloak them in warm, fuzzy coats. Skiers and snowboarders, of course, smiled because they looked up at the cascade of frozen dendrites and saw a reason to go on living. Indeed, Telluride Ski Resort reported 26 inches of total storm accumulation at the top of Lift 9.

Though still mired in the lonely doldrums of off-season, local merchants also benefitted from the season’s biggest storm to date. At Timberline Ace Hardware, clerk Dan Shaw said, “Shovels and tire-chains are flying out the door! Scrapers too.”

Outside on Colorado Avenue, plows had pushed snow to the center of the street, leaving 5-foot-tall piles that weren’t easily crossed. An intrepid pedestrian, however, could navigate to the Free Box, where the only remaining clothing was thin and uninsulated.

Next door at Easy Rider bike shop, owner Jonny Haas speculated on the blizzard’s effects. “It means my bike repairs will stop on a dime. It means I’ll be busy fixing boards and tuning skis the rest of the winter. People get so excited when it snows like this, they dive into their closets and start checking the condition of their gear.”

At the main street location of BootDoctors Paragon Outdoors, mechanic Max Cooper said the bike shop would remain partly open to service Telluride’s burgeoning number of fat bikes. But most of the store vibed Nordic, with skinny skis and XC boots occupying racks and walls. Cooper proudly pointed out the store’s “Nordic Hot Box,” a waxing and tuning station devoted to servicing cross-country skis. While most area stores focus on Alpine skis, this will be the third winter the old Paragon flagship will concentrate on putting the “glide” in Nordic skiers’ kick and glide.

To walk in Telluride’s alleys was to see garbage bins with foot-high snow crowns and a couple of friends laboring to liberate a high-centered Toyota Camry. Sidewalks in residential neighborhoods were not at all consistent. While some homeowners zealously shoveled walks as part of their civic duty, clear pathways often stopped abruptly at the property lines of off-season vacationers. The River Trail lay peacefully silent, as the still falling snow labored to obscure dog poop till March, or at least the annual January thaw.

Not far from Between the Covers — which had a placard out front urging passersby to “Warm up with an Eggnog Latte!” and a more vague message to “Let it Snow!” — was an SUV with Texas plates. The couple who owned it were debating how much snow needed to be cleared before driving off. “Are we s’posed to clear all the snow off the top of the car, too?” the woman twanged. “I’m not sure,” the man from the Sun Belt replied.

Let Telluride clue you in, Lone Star Staters: You only need remove snow from the headlights, windows and windshields. The act of driving will take care of the roof.

CURBED SKI: TELLURIDE, COLORADO IS CONSIDERING A TINY HOME COMMUNITY

Although only in the preliminary stages, the Telluride Town Council recently come closer to approving the temporary use of tiny homes in Telluride. According to the Telluride Daily Planet, tiny homes are defined as “off-grid residences, usually on wheels, that are 400 square feet or less.” The decision before the council is whether to allow 5 tiny homes to temporarily (180 days) relocate to a small tract of land within walking distance from the slopes ofTelluride Ski Resort. The decision is an attempt to relieve the affordable housing crunch.

Tiny homes might be just the thing to help save ski towns. Ski towns across the West—from Jackson to Aspen to Bend—are currently facing low-income housing shortages. Tiny homes are seen as a potential way of “infilling” existing land within city limits to offer lower cost housing. In the case of Telluride, the homes would be located in the Youth Link activity and resource center lot, part of the Telluride Parks & Recreation division. Officials have considered adding centrally located bathroom, showers and laundry facilities for use by tiny home residents to create more of a neighborhood effect. The town council will hold their next meeting on November 17, where they’ll hear the tiny home proposal.

The Rise of the Multi-Homer

An increasing number of ultra high net worth (UHNW) individuals are buying non-traditional homes outside their domiciles according to a new study by Wealth-X and the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand, released today.

Wealth-X has identified more than 211,000 ultra high net worth individuals globally – defined as those with US$30 million and above in net assets – and 79% of them own two or more residences.

The Wealth-X and Sotheby’s International Realty UHNW Luxury Real Estate: Multi-Homers Report reveals that these UHNW buyers look for residences that are environmentally sustainable, technologically sophisticated, or that fit better with their personal and family needs.

WealthX_4_postcard_Capture

Below are other key findings from the report:

  • The average UHNW Multi-homer is 63 years old, has a net worth of US$165 million and is married.
  • The United States is the most popular location for second homes among the ultra wealthy, followed by the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
  • Four types of luxury home types have emerged as favorites among the global ultra wealthy: Green Homes, Smart Homes, Private Islands, and Serviced Apartments. These types of luxury residences serve their needs, aspirations, and lifestyle considerations.
  • The Caribbean and the Mediterranean remain favorites among UHNW buyers for private island homes, but Southeast Asia, Canada, Belize and the United Kingdom are gaining popularity.
  • UHNW Multi-home buyers are fueling market growth in regions beyond global urban hubs such as London, New York City and Hong Kong. The report profiles Miami, Florida; Geneva, Switzerland; and Long Island, New York.

Wealth-X President David Friedman commented: “Wealth-X is pleased to partner with the Sotheby’s International Realty brand for this fourth joint report in 2015.
