The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the queen of talk, Oprah Winfrey, has purchased about 60 acres of prime ski-in/ski-out real estate in Telluride, Colorado. The property is adjacent to Telluride's Galloping Goose ski trail, is the largest property in Mountain Village, and has kickass mountain views. We expect Oprah to build quite the ski chalet (Oprah watch?), which should work because zoning permits allow for both a main house and a guesthouse. Ms. Winfrey paid close to $11 million for the listing and apparently the land wasn't even for sale. This isn't a big surprise; if Oprah's people knocked on our door, it'd be hard for us to say no too.
