Amazing Ski-In/Ski-Out Condo in Old Town

This was the ideal ski vacation property for our family of four. In a small but luxurious compound at the base of Telluride mountain right in the beautiful original mining town, our favorite place to stay. Private ski lounge for rentals and overnight storage is right there. Great hot tubs and fitness facility with 24 hour access. Heated driveways and common areas so there's no ice or snow to navigate when getting to our skis or going for a soak. Secure underground parking. We valeted, but I think you can self park too. Around the corner from the main grocery store, a perfect little wine and liquor shop and the best Thai restaurant in the mountains. Also, just a short 5 minute walk to the center of town and all the shopping and other restaurants. We either took the private funicular to start our ski day right on the mountain or enjoyed the path along the beautiful river to begin on the gondola and go straight up to Mountain Village. The condo itself is beautifully decorated and spacious. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking gear we needed and lots of stemware. There is an awesome fireplace to gather around and a comfortable deck off the living room and master bedroom with mountain views. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They took all our luggage up to the unit and offered to put our skis in the lounge. On a couple of occasions we also took advantage of their concierge chauffeur to drop us off or pick us up around town. Telluride is also beautiful in summer and this would be the perfect condo for a hiking, biking, rafting and fishing visit. Looking forward to return in any season.

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 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)

Telluride: Southwestern Colorado's Modern Playground
November 11, 2016 Many resorts brag about how their town is a state of mind, not a place; Telluride seems to have taken that concept to heart. By want of its location, it really couldn’t be any other way. It’s certainly one of the most remote among ...Colorado’s major ski resorts, located in the state’s southwestern corner 65 miles from Montrose, the nearest major airport with commercial service (although limited flights into Telluride’s own lofty airstrip will resume this winter). It’s well over 300 miles from Denver. The town itself is located in a box canyon, a narrow cul-de-sac with a flat valley floor and thousand-foot high walls on three sides. Bridal Veil Falls – a scenic attraction in summer and one of the nation’s most difficult multi-pitch ice climbs in winter – is at the head of the valley. Free cross-country ski trails traverse the valley floor, making a pleasant alternative to downhill skiing for an afternoon. (see less)
Comment Telluride is a wealthy town, but a very humble one as well. How can you not be, when you're surrounded by breathtaking, massive mountain ranges on all ...sides? (see less)
