Telluride, a former mining town in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, is one of my favorite ski towns. I'm only a half day drive to this beautiful box canyon amid the San Juan Mountains. I love to stay in the town’s historic district and visit all the local boutiques. One of my favorite local cafes is the Butcher and the Baker and make sure to eat breakfast there and grab a coffee at The Cowboy Coffee. In Telluride town the Element 52 is an amazing Auberge Resort I've had a couple clients get ready at the Lumière with Inspirato in Mountain Village or the Fairmont Franz Klammer Lodge. If you stay in Mountain Village you are only a ten minute free gondola ride away from Telluride town.
