During the year under review, Tracy Purdy helps people buy and sell homes and oversees 75 short and tall homes in Leadville and surrounding areas.
This year, unexpectedly and unexpectedly, he also became an IT expert.
Throughout the summer and fall, Purdy has been making phone calls from people wanting to reserve one of the Lake County offices in the mountains. And they all have one question: How is Wi-Fi there?
This is how Purdy found himself running home on vacation after a vacation, doing online running tests and texting pictures of downloads and temporary releases at any location for guests who want to see them.
“It’s a very direct and indirect question – it’s not a fixed question,” said Purdy, who is an Independence Realty & Property Management and her husband, Andrew, and also serves as President of the Leadville / Lake County Chamber of Commerce.
Like many areas of Colorado, Leadville is seeing a dramatic increase in visitors living for weeks and months at a time, exercising their newfound right to work and study remotely as a result of the coronavirus epidemic. There is also a unique name that is made for these types of mixed-learning-to-play: flexibility.

Switching is one of the hottest journeys encouraged by the epidemic. Across Colorado, hotels, guesthouses, pastures and campgrounds offer special packages in hopes of attracting travel professionals and their children.
Their noise? If you can work and study anywhere, why not do it here, in beautiful Colorado?
For travelers, flexibility is part of the holiday, part of the class walk, part of the satellite. Families with young children can take advantage of the many opportunities in Colorado, arts, culture and abroad to support their homework – it’s like one long, fun trip!
Employees can watch Zoom all day, then go out in the sun to take advantage of the great desert experience and the opportunity to enjoy Colorado.
In the meantime, accommodation providers provide much-needed encouragement to the company during the difficult summer season, which is often the best weather. Although Governor Jared Polis regarded them as important business hotels during the epidemic, many were temporarily closed for spring and summer because few people were traveling.
“Extending the travel season, really,” said Abby Leeper, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Tourism Office. “Historically, the busiest season in Colorado is the summer. But since travelers and their children are not just left in the classroom, they have the opportunity to go elsewhere and continue their education. It offers a welcome atmosphere not just the summer season, but it also offers opportunities for places that may not see the continuity of travel at this time. ”
As of March, the tourism office has not sold Colorado tours to other countries as usual, but this has not prevented foreign tourists from being picked up here.
In Leadville, for example, there are first-time visitors so it is not uncommon to hear people mispronounce the city’s name “Leed-ville,” Purdy said.

Viceroy Snowmass, a luxury hotel at the end of Snowmass Mountain, sees many visitors from Texas, Florida, Arizona and other countries staying for a month or two. Most of the visitors are professional professionals and families who want more privacy and space than is found in downtown Aspen.
To that end, Viceroy is offering more tax-free discounts (12% discount), parking and pay-as-you-go discounts as well as exclusive offers and VIP event management.
“The main thing for driving is to leave the house after it is closed but in a place that offers a lot of things that allow people to enjoy it,” said Elizabeth Smith, sales manager of Viceroy Snowmass. “Many visitors come to work during the week and enjoy everything they have in the area on the weekends.”
Colouradans also maintains accommodations in government hotels, shopping malls and vacation rentals.
