Lovely Ski-In/Out on Telluride Mtn.

Being greeted by a concierge who offered to help me carry my luggage to the unit was a great way to start a ski trip. The property is definitely slope-side, serviced by an interesting small mountainside tram called a funicular that is literally steps from the property door and delivered us right to the ski-run. There is a ski-valet/ski lounge located beside the funicular base which makes starting/ending your day a breeze. The condo is tastefully appointed; the bright kitchen with a gas range has everything needed for cooking. Fireplace, nice balcony, plush washrooms…all made this a very comfortable place to stay. There is a well-equipped gym on the first floor as well as secured parking although I didn’t use the parking. When we finally decided to take some time off from skiing and after relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, we discovered that we were a short 5-minute walk to Main Street and the centre of the old town passing a wine shop, grocery store and restaurants along the way. Highly recommend this property.

Great Stay

We (two couples) escaped the heat and humidity of the northeast for a delightful long July 4 weekend in Telluride, and we hit the jackpot with this luxury modern condo. Its two suites are at opposite ends, affording privacy for two couples. We were able to walk everywhere as the condo is only a short stroll from the town center and from numerous scenic walking trails along the river and up the mountains. Our favorite trail led up to a waterfall and a panoramic view of the town. Telluride has great restaurants, stores, art galleries and friendly people. There are two community hot tubs, refreshing after a long day of hiking, eating out and shopping, and a fitness facility, as well as a complimentary shuttle service for special excursions. Telluride was a perfect way to pamper ourselves with a relaxing and carefree summer vacation in the western San Juan Mountains of Colorado.

World's Best Ski Resorts: Telluride Wows With Charm, Scenery and Great Skiing
September 13, 2017 When it’s time to pick a ski vacation destination, there are tons of choices, and the industry’s big names immediately leap to mind: Vail, Jackson Hole, Park City, Aspen, Whistler, and so on. They all have great facilities, but ...Colorado’s Telluride often gets overlooked in this discussion. That’s a huge mistake: not only is it worthy of consideration, I could make a compelling argument that it is the single best ski vacation choice in the country. But no matter how you slice it, it’s near the top, with lots of strengths and very few weaknesses. In fact, in its 2016-2017 reader’s poll, industry leading publication Ski Magazine ranked it North America’s Best for Overall Satisfaction, and what do we want from our vacations if not the most Satisfaction? It also ranked Number One for both Scenery and Character. (see less)

Telluride ski trip offers adrenaline at its peak
October 10, 2017 I stare down the steep chute of Electric Shock, a double-black-diamond slope plunging from a jagged, icy ridge at 13,000 feet, near the upper limits of Telluride Ski Resort. I'm short of breath and my heart is pounding - from anticipation, from ...the thin air and from my hour-long hike to reach this spot.

Although Telluride's city slogan is "The Town Without a Belly Ache," I have a knot in my stomach. (see less)
