Glacier View Meadows came into existence in 1971 when the Glacier View Meadows Development Company and limited partnership bought 6,000 acres of the former Currie Ranch. This property was originally divided into approximately 1042 lots in twelve filings ranging in size from one to ten acres. The purpose of the development was to have a mountain community suitable for year-round living and recreation. Except during the heaviest snow storms and extended periods of wind gusts causing snow drifts, year around accessibility is provided over well-maintained roads.

The land varies in elevation from about 7,000 feet to 8,000 feet. There are many hills and valleys with Ponderosa pines, Douglas firs, Junipers, and Aspen. The Roosevelt National Forest borders Glacier View Meadows and there are many views of the Mummy Range with the Elkhorn Valley below. There is a variety of wildlife such as rocky raccoons, deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, black bears, mountain lions, fox, and many varieties of birds.

Today, Glacier View Meadows is co-owned by private property owners and is "managed" by the two Home Owner Association's Boards:   Road and Recreation Association and the Water and Sewer Association.
