Slope-side luxury at Mountain Lodge Telluride

Convenience coupled with a touch of luxury makes Mountain Lodge Telluride the perfect choice for your winter holiday.

Telluride, Colorado was first established as a gold mining town in 1878 but went on to become a luxury winter destination. The town has a rich history including the fact that Butch Cassidy’s first major crime took place at the San Miguel Valley Bank in Telluride, where he stole $24,580.

This history makes Telluride one of the most interesting resorts in Colorado.

How do I get to Mountain Lodge Telluride?

Telluride’s location makes it surprisingly easy to get to. There are numerous flights directly into the Montrose/Telluride Regional Airport from around the country.  Once you have arrived at the airport it is a scenic drive through some of the best mountain scenery in Colorado.

The Gondola

The Gondola

One of the most unique characteristics of Telluride is the free Gondola system transporting guests from the Mountain Village to the town of Telluride.  The beginning of the gondola is next door to the Mountain Lodge with a short 30 second shuttle ride on the Mountain Lodge free shuttle, extremely convenient for our guests. The 16 minute ride gives you the opportunity to experience the stunning beauty of the San Juan Mountains.

What is there to do off the slopes?

In addition to snowboarding, downhill skiing and cross-country skiing, there’s a lot to do on a Telluride vacation. The nearby Nordic Center is a great place to start as it offers ice skate rentals, or you could go on a ski or snowshoe tour of the surrounding area.

If you’re visiting Telluride with your family, a sleigh ride would go down brilliantly. It’s a great way to see the area and take in the scenery while observing some beautiful animals. If you’re feeling more adventurous, why not go on a group horseback ride through the snow.
