Bomber Ski Travel Guide: Visit Telluride March 01, 2016
Few places on earth can match Telluride's beauty and authentic ski town charm. Here is our Bomber Ski Travel Guide for where to stay, eat and ski.
Where to Stay
Named one of the "Top 5 Hotels of the West" by readers of Conde Nast Traveler, The Madeline has mastered the art of hospitable luxury with concierge and bell service, daily housekeeping, in-room dining and a full-service slopeside ski valet. We, of course, appreciate the on-mountain location!
Where to Dine Allred's Restaurant
Call us traditional, but Allred's is Telluride's most popular restaurant for a reason -- and it's only partly because of the ambiance and sweeping mountain views. The menu, from Colorado braised beef short rib to bourbon marinated elk strip loin, is exceptional.
Where to Ski
With 2,000 skiable acres and zero lift lines, finding a bad run at Telluride is blissfully impossible, but we have to agree with EpicSki (read the whole article here) that North Chute is a gem among gems. Tucked away below Look Out run, this narrow, just-long-enough tree has consistently great snow, thanks to its shaded location.
The Skis to Bring
The fast, fun Bomber Heritage ski, with its tip-to-tail wood core and front-side-friendly construction, is the perfect ski for Telluride's varied terrain.
Where to Après Ski
"The Buck" is where to après-ski in Telluride, and probably where you'll meet your newest friends. Throw a quarter in the juke box and order up a Colorado draft beer at this 35-year-old Telluride establishment.
