#1 Ski Town Telluride, Colorado

Since we get to live here, it’s not that surprising to us, but it is still very exciting to be named the top ski resort by Condé Nast Traveler for the sixth time in the past seven years! What locals know is that Telluride has worked hard and managed to maintain its down-to-earth authenticity, but it’s nice to hear that visitors and editors recognize and love the same things that we do about this magical mountain town.


The Condé Nast Traveler article goes on to describe not just the chill vibe of Telluride, but its uncrowded and beautiful ski terrain, the abundance of unique and delicious eateries, and our wonderful lodging options.

Be sure to check out the full article from Condé Nast Traveler

Gondola Telluride Number 1 Ski Town Photo by Lisa Marie Wright Photography

Photo by Lisa Marie Wright Photography

Telluride has recently received a few other accolades. Forbes also named Telluride the number two ski resort in North America for 2019. Forbes uses a calculation of various factors including “snowfall, terrain, crowds and town ambience. These factors are baked into a master algorithm that yields, for 220 ski resorts on the continent, a Pure Awesomeness Factor, or PAF.” Forbes gave Telluride a PAF of 95.7, putting us in second place and highlighting that “scenery-wise, there is no North American ski town that competes.”


Check out the full Forbes ranking.

303 Magazine also just published a list of 21 Colorado restaurants with a view and included Telluride’s Alpino Vino and Altezza. We could of course add a few suggestions to their list, including Allred’s, Bon Vivant, Giuseppe’s, and Gorrono Ranch!

If you’re ready to visit Telluride for the first time or the 100th, we’re here to help you find your perfect home away from home. Whether it’s ski season or summer festival season, let us know how we can help. You can search our properties here. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

While Telluride is a National Historic District and that means some things can’t and won’t change much (one thing we love about this place!), some things do change, and we’re here with your guide to what might be new to you since your last trip to Telluride.

Looking for a hearty, delicious and quick breakfast or lunch? This new Mountain Village offering from Telluride Ski Resort offers customized, hand-rolled, gourmet burritos and bowls. Custom build your own bowl or burrito between 7:30am and 3pm daily. Eggs cooked to order are available at breakfast time and gluten-free alternatives are available. It’s the custom homemade sauces and salsas like Local Honey Sambal Oelek, Orange Soy Crema, and Kimchi Salsa that take your breakfast or lunch up a notch.


Altezza’s Plant-Based Menu

New Plant-Based menu items available at Altezza restaurant at The Peaks Resort in Telluride, Colorado

The Peaks Resort not only revamped Altezza’s menu this year, but has taken it up a notch by incorporating a new plant-based menu. The smoked hummus, Thai kale sprouts salad, or the forest mushroom ragout may entice even the most avid meat eater. If you’re thinking, “no thanks,” there’s always the ahi tuna gyro porcini rubbed steaks to satisfy your appetite. No matter which meal you choose to enjoy, plant-based or otherwise, you’re sure to enjoy the panoramic views of Telluride.

Enjoy high quality hot dogs, salads, baked potatoes, and snacks made to order. In addition to a wide variety of hot dog bun and topping options, you can also satisfy your sweet tooth by choosing from an array of delicious milkshake flavors.


The Tunnel

Photo Courtesy The Tunnel, Telluride

The website says, “Leave your knives, guns and cell phones at the door.” While The Tunnel has been around since last season, you may not know about this well-kept “secret.” With good reason though: The Tunnel, essentially a speakeasy experience, is a throwback to the prohibition era during Telluride’s mining days. You need a reservation and a password to enter. A small trap door will open on the front door where the password is to be given. With only two intimate dining spaces, guests are escorted to their seats and greeted with a cocktail or mocktail followed by a five-course Chef’s tasting menu paired with molecular mixed spirits, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. The “theme” and menu changes every few weeks, along with the password, of course. You can find the password on their Facebook page or in The Daily Planet classified ads under “The Tunnel.”

Last Dollar Saloon Remodel

Last Dollar Saloon Telluride Colorado

Photo courtesy https://www.facebook.com/LastDollarSaloon/

Long-time favorite of locals and visitors alike, “The Buck,” as it’s lovingly called ’round these parts has had a facelift. Not to worry though, owners were careful to honor the bar’s history and vibe, and took care not to get “too fancy” with things. However, this watering hole is now up to code and structurally sound with a bit better flow and use of space. Plans for a rooftop bar are now in the works and space in the back has been re-established for restaurant. The restaurant space will be completely separate however; stay tuned for details about “The National,” which we hear is coming to that space soon.


Telluride’s Chinese restaurant has closed. Shanghai Palace closed in October of 2018 and will now be a pit stop for travelers passing through Montrose on their way to Telluride. Hankerings for asian food can still be filled by Pescado, Tallay, or Siam’s Tallay (Mountain Village).



Nested Petal & Home

You’re staying in a vacation rental because you want to feel like you have a home away from home. What’s better than fresh flowers to brighten your day?

Maybe you already know about the amazing affects of time spent in a salt cave… but did you know Telluride has its own cave now? Tucked into the Pure Beauty & Wellness Spa (which has also changed locations) you can find the calming, soothing, healing salt cave which can help if you’re having trouble with our high altitude or with allergies. In between adventures, take some time to meditate and breathe deep while you absorb minerals through your breath and skin. If you want to take your relaxation to the next level, book a massage in the salt cave. You can also enjoy yoga surrounded by pink himalayan salt. The cave offers guided meditation sessions, unguided relaxation sessions, private sessions and couples sessions. Read more about the benefits of time in the salt cave here.

SMPA Lot Construction

The construction of the new multi-use lot including a parking facility, affordable housing and the future home of the Ah Haa Arts School at 160 Fir Street has commenced. All of the businesses surrounding the area, including The Market at Telluride and Baked in Telluride, are still open. There is however, a gaping hole in the ground which comes with occasional sidewalk and street closures.
