Telluride

dos, grand mountain residences, stylish boutiques, innovative dining, the world-class Spa at the Peaks Hotel and a champion- ship golf course complement the historic charm of Telluride to create “the best of both worlds.” Telluride, Mountain Village and their surrounding areas boast a desirable array of high-end luxury and value-oriented properties – truly something for every budget. And unlike other high profile resorts, Telluride and Mountain Village both offer true ski-in/out condos and homes with grand views and sumptuous amenities. These sought after proper- ties ensure time is spent on the slopes and trails, not getting there. Venturing further out of town, one can experience the ultimate in privacy and mountain living on 50 to 2,000 acre parcels with some of the most profound views in the west, and arguably the world. All the big mountain views and luxuries aside – in Tel- luride, lifestyle is king. And in the end that is what has turned visitor after visitor into locals.

EVERYONE has a good time when they come to Telluride – the people smiling the most are the one’s who never left. Upon first glance, visitors are immediately enchanted with the breath- taking setting of the historic Town of Telluride. The grand snowcapped peaks of the 14,000 foot San Juan Mountains and imposing Box Canyon waterfalls ensnare the senses, while the warm embrace of the Telluride community welcomes you to paradise. The over-a-century-old Town of Telluride is filled with colorful legends and Rocky Mountain spirit. Just six blocks wide and twelve blocks long, the National Historic District is a window into the town’s illustrious past, with its colorful Victorian homes, clapboard storefronts and boutiques. Each summer the town plays host to such world-renowned events as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Telluride Film Festival, and Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, just to name a few. And there’s plenty for the kids too – the Telluride community is extremely family focused. Telluride’s educa- tion system is nationally recognized as exemplary, with camps and extra curriculars from rock climbing and river rafting to theater and dance. Telluride’s World-Class Ski Resort is a grandiose backdrop to the his- toric town, offering a genuine mountain experience for all levels of skiers, thanks to a mix of quality terrain on 2,000+ skiable acres. Even beginners and intermediate skiers can ride to the highest peaks and enjoy terrain and views typically reserved for experts. And forget crowds: the trails are never packed, and there is rarely a lift line. Telluride was recently named the #1 ski resort in North America by Condé Nast readers, as well as the #1 most scenic and #2 most charming resort in Ski Magazine. Perched at 9,500 feet on the Telluride Ski Resort, Mountain Village exudes modern alpine elegance. Telluride and its sister town are linked via the only free gondola in North America, possibly the most pictur- esque 13-minute ride you will ever experience. Luxury hotels and con-
