GRANBY, CO-Marise Cipriani, owner of the SolVista Golf & Ski Ranch resort about 78 miles west of Denver, is delaying the start of construction of the Twin Saddles Lodge. The $33-million multifamily and retail project, first announced last April, was to have begun in the late summer.

Instead, Cipriani is pushing construction to next spring.

“We have not cancelled the project,” Cipriani tells GlobeSt.com. “We have merely made a decision to start fresh in the spring rather than face a late start and the inherent problems of building in the winter.”

Cipriani adds she is excited that Grand County commissioners granted preliminary plat approval for the project, which will serve as the heart of her planned $100-million expansion. In addition to 109 units, priced from the mid-$200,000s to about $500,000, Twin Saddles would include a fitness center, a restaurant and lounge.

Cipriani says she was “unjustly accused” by the owners of the nearby Mountainside Condominiums of not providing them with ski-in, ski-out access to SolVista’s ski mountain.

“In the best interest of both Mountainside and our village development, we have offered the Mountainside property owners a ski easement as well as a second easement through a dedicated quad lift to move the process along,” Cipriani says. “We have also offered a shuttle service until the new lift is completed. In the meantime, we have lost our construction window and have made the decision to delay the start of construction until next spring.”
