The market is continuing to improve steadily up here in Winter Park, Colorado.  We’re a second home/resort market at a major ski resort, Winter Park Resort.  So our market does not necessarily follow the same path as a market like Denver with mostly primary homes.  But we do tend to follow Denver’s trajectory, Winter Park just lags behind a bit.  Here is a summary of what happened in 2015 as compared to previous years.  In the following summaries and linked graphs, the area of Winter Park includes Winter Park, Fraser and Tabernash.  Granby is a stand alone area.  Grand Lake includes from Lake Granby up to Grand Lake.
