Aspen? Who goes there anymore!?

Better, join us at Colorado’s toniest and most exciting ski resort for a high-profile week of skiing and snowboarding! Our lodge in Mountain Village is ski-in/ski-out with the village gondola steps away for easy access to apres-ski and evening activities in the old town, including some of the best food in the mountain west. Located in the spectacular San Juan Range on Colorado’s Western Slope, and accessed via the Million Dollar Highway through Colorado’s historic silver mining region, Telluride features some of the best lift-served backcountry in the West, as well as a wide selection of groomed terrain at all ability levels. With more than 2000 skiable acres, 18 lifts, 127 trails, including the 4.6-mile “Galloping Goose,” and an average annual snowfall of 300+ inches, Telluride more than deserves its legendary status among skiers. Incredible on-mountain dining options put this experience over the top! For those who’ve been there, it is no surprise that Telluride was BY FAR the most popular destination on last year’s survey. Ski Magazine’s #4 western destination (#1 for Character/Scenery, #9 in Terrain Variety!) in its 2015 Resort Guide.
