Telluride is a tale of two towns connected by a free gondola that crests the mountain at 10,551 feet – making this one of the most unique and engaging destinations in the world.
Set in a box canyon surrounded by towering peaks, the historic mining town of Telluride, is quaint and authentic, with cozy taverns and restaurants. Founded in 1887, the old town, now preserved as a National Historic Landmark District, reminds us of its colorful past at every turn.
Upslope is Mountain Village, the resort community on the ski mountain established a hundred years later in 1987. This is the heart of the mountain activity scene with luxurious accommodations and lively restaurants and bars ringing the base of the ski hill.
Inn at Lost Creek is located just steps from the gondola station in Mountain Village. Guests can ride the gondola to the top of the mountain in 5 minutes or to the Town of Telluride in 12 minutes. The gondola is open from 7:00 am to midnight daily during peak summer, fall and winter seasons.
Dressing for the Mountains
Staying warm depends on staying dry. Cotton makes you colder by holding moisture against your skin and drawing the heat away from your body, so try to stay away from cotton. A hat, sunscreen, UV eye protection, and waterproof boots are also a must if you plan on spending time outdoors.
Adjusting To Altitude
One person in four will feel some degree of temporary discomfort while adjusting to altitude. What does this mean to you and your family? Perhaps nothing, but if you do experience a headache within the first 24 hours in Telluride it is likely due to the adjustment your body is making to being above 9,500 feet elevation. We have several methods of eliminating these symptoms, often within 10-15 minutes. Please let us know if you have experienced this in the past or are feeling it now, we can get you back to feeling great in no time.
