"It is all so very beautiful and picturesque, and the air and mountains and people are so fine." - Ansel Adams



“I love this place! We came out here to get back into skiing and to be outdoorsy. Where else can you ski and golf in the same weekend? We absolutely love it and wouldn’t change it for anything.” – Dr. Kristean Thorpe, Obstetrics and Gynecology 

“My wife and I were looking for a place that was smaller, more of a hometown feel. When we looked at Farmington it was really what we were looking for – small town, family friendly, a place where you can really feel like you are part of the community. As a surgeon, I wanted to feel like I was really providing an asset to the community.” - Dr. Philip Ernest, Surgeon
