Oui oui! You’ll be saying “yes” to excess in this sprawling 7 bedroom, 6 full bath (and 4 half bath) private chateau built in a style not often seen outside the French Alps. As you approach, see which member of your group can spot the most elk on the way in. Don’t worry. These ones don’t move. Nor do the two majestic eagle sculptures that are there to greet you at your valet-like front door. This is the moment that the phrase “you’ve arrived” takes on a whole new meaning.

Once inside, unpacking can wait. The first thing the adults need to do is break out the wine and cheese and admire the architecture, with exposed wood, high ceilings, and sumptuous curvatures. But don’t forget the kids. Spark a flame for them to roast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit. Now the whole family is truly tasting luxury.

Inside, maximum privacy reigns supreme (even though you are only 150 yards from the slope). It’s exactly what you would expect from an acre of land in the wooded area of Mountain Village. It just really respects the nature that surrounds it. Each section of the home is like a different section of vacation. You have your sleeping quarters of course. Kids will love building a fort from their bunk beds, and enjoy the control of their own TV for one. With parental permission of course. Adults can also explore their inner child, as one guest room even has its own full-sized bunks, too. So go ahead. Make it an entire village of forts around the house. We won’t tell anyone.

In short, every detail is covered in this magnificent manor. A large, open kitchen with restaurant-quality appliances. A dining room that comfortably seats 10 hungry tummies. Fireplaces at nearly every turn. A work office we hope you’ll never enter. An outdoor hot tub we hope you will. And a velvety looking game room with a pool table, giant flatscreen, and enough sports memorabilia to impress even the most uppity sports enthusiast. You may be at the foot of the hills at Aux Pied des Pistes, but you’ll be on top of the world when you stay here.

Complete Guide to Telluride

This tiny town is known for big mountains and large music festivals. But what many may not know is that it’s the maverick, wild-west attitude of the folks in town that makes Telluride so special. And why people always come back for more.
...Prepare to travel back in time to a simpler place…but of course you’ll have an all-access pass to today’s contemporary comforts and state-of-the-art luxuries that are sure to push your vacation over the top. (see less)
Telluride sm
Telluride Film Festival
The Telluride Film Festival (TFF) made its debut amidst the majestic San Juan Mountains in 1973. Telluride had always been a scene for cinematic legends, harking back to the days when such stars as Houdini, the Marx Brothers, and Sarah Bernhardt ...journeyed to Telluride to entertain miners in the Sheridan Opera House. Today, that very same Sheridan Opera House is still one of three formal venues of the TFF (the others include Chuck Jones’ Cinema and the Werner Herzog Theater). And the stars that flock to this Telluride festival have only gotten progressively bigger. (see less)

Small Town, Big Thrills Await Skiers in Telluride
November 11, 2016 A sapphire sky on a sunny day. The aroma of rich, creamy mushroom soup. Larmandier-Bernier Champagne chilling. Bon Vivant restaurant puts a luxurious twist on the skier's outdoor picnic lunch — just one of the refined touches at Telluride Ski ...Resort, where the season kicks off Nov. 24. (see less)
Comment There are many places to take a ski vacation, so it's important to consider what sets each location apart from the next. Telluride has the small-town feel while still providing plenty of ...choices. (see less)

36 Hours in Telluride, Colorado
October 28, 2016 There are steeper ski resorts than Telluride. There are ski resorts that get more snow. But few places are more friendly and prettier than this town at the end of a box canyon in the tall San Juan Mountains, a place so cinematic that Quentin ...Tarantino was here last winter filming his forthcoming western, “The Hateful Eight.” Beauty and great skiing keep pulling the money here, and that keeps refreshing the scene. But it’s the people who make this place interesting — a quirky stew of Patagonia-clad men who look as if they came straight from base camp; flushed women direct from their 10-mile runs; still others reciting poetry in bordello-wear at a Colorado Avenue bar; and gray-ponytailed hippies who play “Sugar Magnolia” so often you’d think Jerry Garcia never went to that great jam fest in the sky. Telluride isn’t just a ski area; it’s a way of life. (see less)
Comment This is an amazing short re-cap of what Telluride has to offer.  But let me say after a few hours you'll realize you want a few more days or weeks in the is incredibly gorgeous mountain oasis. From outdoor sports to amazing dining and ...nightlife Telluride really is a hidden gem.  (see less)
Taco del nar
Taco del Gnar comes to Telluride
October 28, 2016 The popular Ridgway establishment Taco del Gnar will officially be opening its doors in Telluride on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Curtis Blanton, the executive chef and owner, and his wife Chas Blanton said that it took them about two years to find an ...affordable spot that would work in Telluride. With the help of a friend who purchased the building, they were able to rent out the first level and make their second location a reality. Prior to the restaurant, the building was home to Deer Consignment. The new spot is located at 123 S. Oak St. directly behind Elks Park. “The park is part of our dining room,” Chas Blanton said. The first location in Ridgway was opened almost three years ago and has gained a reputation amongst Telluride locals. (see less)
Comment it's a great taco that will make you come back to Telluride again and again. The different tacos are awesome and incredibly well executed. The price is very reasonable by Telluride standards. I highly recommend the taco dinner for just $10. ...Family friendly and tons of local atmosphere. The staff is great and friendly to add to the restaurant's amazing style. (see less)
