Beginning as one man’s vision in 1999, Founder David Burden launched the Timbers Club in Snowmass in Aspen, Colorado. Initially envisioned as the building of a single resort, other development opportunities were sought and the true potential of Timbers Resorts was realized.
With an eye on providing approachable luxury resort experiences that emphasize blending with the local culture, Timbers quickly evolved into a world-class brand. By avoiding the more standardized heel-clicking, sterilized approach commonly associated with luxury resorts, our Timbers niche was established.
While our business model evolved, our core values have never wavered. We started this journey inspired not only to protect and preserve the environment but to operate with great sensitivity. We pride ourselves on being stewards of the land and a partner to the locals in spectacular, one-of-a-kind destinations; intimate in scale yet with the feeling of home to everyone who stays with us.
At Timbers, we believe life is a collection of moments. It’s watching your grandchild catch a wave, or that first family run together down a black diamond slope. It’s everyone all curled up with popcorn and a movie. It’s the magic that brings us back to our favorite places again and again. It’s where we feel like a local. And why we put down roots. But it’s also the little things—like a familiar smile—or a warm welcome after a long day of travel. The collective moments created by our team make the Timbers brand, a luxury haven people trust and return to, time after time.
For the past two decades, our company shared its name with our world-class, ultra-luxury Timbers Resorts. As we embark on a new period of growth and expanded product development, we are proud to reintroduce our team behind Timbers Resorts as Timbers Company.
