The dynamic duo is back to take you on the vacation of your dreams. Telluride is home to many stars who love skiing in the San Juan mountain range. You might run into Tom Cruise or Cindy Crawford or ski right past Oprah’s house. Our hotel/condo is just ten minutes via gondola to the town of Telluride which is filled with shops, bars and restaurants. The town has a historic flare reminiscent of the gold rush days combined with a sophisticated charm. The Mountain Village has a modern twist and both towns are connect via a pedestrian gondola.

Telluride Ski Resort made Ski Magazine’s short list as one of the top five ski destination in their annual resort guide.

We fly into Montrose airport and take a 1 ½ hour bus ride up the breathtaking Box Canyon in the San Juan Mountains, which is a priceless experience. Once there, you can ski or board this fabulous mountain right from The Peaks hotel or The Mountain Lodge slope side. You will enjoy the FSC activities which include Racing for the Florida Cup, Mountain Lunch, two FSC buffet dinners with music & dancing with a costume theme at the final FSC party. Nancy and M.A. will host a TBSSB Farewell Dinner Party as well as après parties with appetizers. Telluride is a favorite of our travelers so join up today to make this trip a special one for you.

Telluride's gondola system provides free transportation between the town of Mountain Village and the town of Telluride. It's the first and only free public transportation of its kind in the United States. From the town of Telluride at 8,750 feet, the gondola climbs 1,790 vertical feet before reaching Station St. Sophia at 10,540 feet. It’s a quiet 13-minute ride from town to town with breathtaking scenery and 360 degree panoramic views. From the town of Telluride, the gondola climbs over the front side of the ski resort. As you gain elevation, the San Sophia Ridge comes into view above the town. 13,000 foot peaks Mears Peak, Dallas Peak, Gilpin Peak, Mt. Emma and Chicago Peak gain prominence. Near Station St. Sophia, you’ll see nearly the entire town and the surrounding mountains in a single view. From Station St. Sophia at 10,540 feet above sea level, the Gondola continues towards the Mountain Village Core. In the distance, Wilson Peak, Mount Wilson and Lizard Head appear to the west. On a clear day looking west you can also see the La Sal mountain range in central Utah near Moab. Continuing down, the gondola places you just a short walk to the Mountain Village Core where shopping and dining await.
