The Story Behind the Name of Glacier’s Newest Real Estate Offering: Etta Ridge

Etta Ridge, Glacier’s newest real estate offering, is an enclave of luxurious three- and four-bedroom condominiums that are aptly suited to worry-free, come-and-go living unlike anything else in Southwest Colorado. So when giving a name to this intimate, modern mountain experience, we greatly considered the adventurous and authentic escapism that encapsulates the Glacier lifestyle.

That’s how this one-of-a-kind collection of mountain residences earned its name from Etta Place, the leading woman in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid — one of Hollywood’s greatest Westerns filmed right here in Durango. Inspired by her mystifying storyline, as well as the rare parcel’s location atop a distinct promontory amid century-old ponderosa pines, we chose the moniker of Etta Ridge. 

Accompanying the new name are our two floor plans of The Sundance and The Cassidy — the other two members of the notorious “Wild Bunch.” Behind the luxury and sophistication, there’s always a spark of adventure that calls in the wilderness of Southwest Colorado. 

With flexible floor plans, light-filled interiors, direct and private elevator access and a central location, Etta Ridge is a prime locale to stress less about living logistics and focus on the present. With the tremendous sales success over the past year, Etta Ridge’s first two buildings are nearly pre-sold out and we’re now set to launch Phase II. If you, too, are interested in learning more about Etta Ridge or wish to schedule a private tour when you’re at Glacier next, we welcome you to reach out to our dedicated sales team at [email protected] and explore our brochure in the meantime.
