| 7 min read

In the Colorado Rocky Mountains is a former Victorian mining town called Telluride. While this is mainly a ski and golf resort destination, the town’s historic district landmarks give a break from recreation on the slopes. Amid the alpine storybook snow capped mountains are where you can learn more about the past of Telluride. Here you’re invited to travel back in time and visit the Telluride Historical Museum, which is a converted hospital built in 1896, and the performing arts venue originally built in 1913, the Sheridan Opera house. Enjoy world class dining before or after you visit one of these venues.

Skiing is a full body sport and relaxing after a day on the slopes is welcome and even necessary. Make yourself at home in one of these cabins and cozy up to a fire, soak in a hot tub and enjoy some comforting home cooked meals. A great rental can really enhance your ski vacation turning it into a full-on Telluride experience!

1. Free standing ski in, ski out modern condo with stunning views and hot tub (from USD 439)

This stylish condo in The Peak is a real value for groups not only for the low daily rate but also because it includes two ski medallions, which saves you 260 USD per day in lift tickets which translates to 1820 USD for the week if you ski for 7 days!

Inside there is an elegant dining area, scenic views, and a private hot tub on the deck and a loft. There are three bedrooms, three full baths, a queen pull out in the sun room den and an open kitchen, all within 250 square meters (2500 square feet). Additionally, the property has a ski butler!

In the morning, walk a few steps to the valet, grab your pre-warmed ski boots, step into your skis and you’re off! Nothing could be simpler. You won’t need a car at this location, slopes are close, restaurants are close and the clubhouse is a few steps away. The Peak’s valet offers free hot chocolate and hot cider all day and will tune your skis overnight (for a small fee) so they are ready for you, sharpened and waxed in the morning.
