Gate Access

Everyone entering the Cordillera community enters through the gatehouses, located at the Divide and Ranch. Cordillera gatehouses have two entry lanes and one exit lane. The right lane is for property owners with gate access devices. All other traffic, including property owners who do not have transponders, should use the lane closest to the gatehouses. 

Please slow down when approaching and driving through all gates. 
Gatehouses are staffed from 5:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and are closed between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. After-hours access for those who do not have access devices is provided through telephone call boxes located adjacent to the gatehouses on the inside lanes. Guests can use call boxes to contact public safety patrol, which can then provide remote access through the gates. Public Safety patrols operate 24 hours a day. To expedite access at all times, especially at night when the gatehouses are closed, property owners should have transponders. 


Cordillera uses license plate readers and eGo stickers. The type of device a property owner uses depends on user preference. License plate transponders are mounted on the front license plate, away from the windshield and electronics. Vehicles that must utilize a license plate device include Mercedes, Land Rover and Bentley.   

Many property owners have multiple transponders. Sometimes these can create issues because the system is trying to read all the devices. It can be helpful if the other devices are removed or covered. 

License plate readers are $50 to purchase; the stickers cost $25. Property owners will need to provide year, make, model, license plate number, contact information and emergency contact information on the application.

Contact Public Safety at 970-926-1923 or visit the Administration Building at 408 Carterville Road for new or replacement gate access devices.  

Bicycle Access

Bicycles must pre-register with Cordillera for an approved access sticker, affixed to the handlebar or affixed to a plastic ID card carried by the cyclist. When riders come to the gate, the following procedures will be followed:
  • The applicant will complete an electronic application
  • The gate officer will give each rider who has completed an application a bicycle sticker.
  • These stickers do not expire.
