Mountain Luxury 20 Min From Boulder
Located just 20 minutes west of Boulder, Caribou Ridge is a serene and private mountain community that feels a world away, but isn’t. Situated on 40 tree-filled acres and bordered by private land, protected Open Space and national forest, the neighborhood offers unparalleled views of the Rocky Mountains and provides a tranquil park-like setting with year-round access to local trail systems. Skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, world-class mountain bike trails and fly-fishing are just a few of the coveted regional amenities and activities.
In 1971, 26-year-old music producer Jim Guercio purchased Caribou Ranch and opened the renowned Caribou Recording Studio. Caribou Ranch was among the first of the so-called destination recording studios where rock legends like Elton John, Chicago, John Lennon, Rod Stewart, Amy Grant, Kris Kristofferson, Phil Collins, Stephen Stills, The Beach Boys and many others came to record.
Caribou Ranch has a deeded base of over 4,000 contiguous acres, ranging in altitude from 8,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level. Grazing permits cover approximately 75,000 additional acres, the majority of which lie within the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area which surrounds Caribou Ranch on the north, south and west.
The pioneering tradition continues today at Caribou Ridge. Here, Caribou Ridge Land Holdings LLC, a family-owned luxury design/build company, has created a resort-like community in the Rocky Mountains surrounded by Boulder County open space, outstanding recreation and the famous Peak to Peak Highway.
