Ridgway resides in a valley that undoubtedly has the best, and most beautiful panoramic views in Colorado. Ouray is 10 minutes south, and has world renowned climbing and mountaineering routes. Some of the best backcountry skiing can be had on Red Mountain and areas close to Silverton. Telluride is 50 minutes away, and speaks for itself........summer festivals and the biggest vertical of any ski area in Colorado. World class outdoor adventures abound!
Opportunities exist for self starters who can 'do the deal'.......that is,
working a regular schedule of at least 8 hrs per day, and 40 hrs per week during a six month season. Being a team player who wants to be here, and wants to work with others.
It sounds pretty easy.......but it isn't - finding housing in and around the area is difficult and costly. This a small town located in an area where real estate is expensive relative to other areas of Colorado and the nation. The nearest chain franchise is 22 miles away in the town of Montrose. In short, one has to want to be here to persevere......that is the price of living in paradise.
On the Flip Side
This is a huge valley, and growth potential for the area in general is positive!
