The History of Alpine Lodging
The story of Alpine Lodging begins in Telluride, Colorado. In the latter part of 2008, two locally-owned vacation rental companies, Alpine Lodging & Real Estate and Telluride Mountain Lodging, merged. Each firm had been operating for 16 years, making the newly created entity the most experienced vacation rental management company in Telluride. Immediately after this union, the opportunity presented itself to acquire another of Telluride’s most trusted vacation rental companies, ResortQuest Telluride.
In late 2009, it became apparent that there was a gap in the Telluride market for quality property management services. As a result, a partnership was forged with Sea to Ski Premier Home Management, based in Park City, UT. Sea to Ski had been successfully offering property care and concierge services in Park City since 2004. With an effective business model, Sea to Ski was ready to expand and enter a like market in Telluride.
In 2015, Alpine Lodging expanded its operation by purchasing Wyndham Vacations in Sun Valley, Idaho. The company, that was then called Wyndham, has a long history in the Wood River Valley as ResortQuest from 2000-2010. Before that is was a family company known as Base Mountain Properties. Alpine Lodging Sun Valley offers a portfolio of more than 100 vacation rentals comprised of condos and homes in Sun Valley, Ketchum, Elkhorn, and Warm Springs.
In 2017, Sea to Ski Premier Home Management came to Sun Valley. Building on the company’s success in Park City and Telluride, Sun Valley was a natural expansion. The synergies existing with the established Alpine Lodging team has allowed Sea to Ski to quickly gain a foot hold and offer the most comprehensive management solution for second homeowners in area.
Today, Alpine Lodging Sun Valley remains locally owned and operated. The depth of hospitality experience possessed by the team, from sales to housekeeping and from guest services to owner services, is unparalleled in the area. The company values its place within the community and the employees sit on several local boards and committees. Most of our employees actively volunteer their time to a variety of organizations. Additionally, the company is proud to support local festivals and events and has been integral in helping them grow Sun Valley into a lively, year-round destination.
