HEADLINES

It is with great pride that we invite you to share Leadville’s spectacular scenery with majestic mountains, pristine forests, backcountry trails and abundant natural snow. Our affordable prices top it all off to make Leadville the perfect winter getaway.

The history of Leadville is filled with dramatic stories of real people who made, and lost, fortunes in this frontier mountain town spiced with Victorian flavor. People known to all of us — Carnegie, Guggenheim, Susan B. Anthony, the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown, Doc Holliday, Oscar Wilde, Horace and Baby Doe Tabor — are just a few of the many who fill Leadville’s past. Rich in gold and silver mining history, Leadville and Lake County are the perfect destination for a unique getaway, relaxing vacation, or relocation.
