Boutique Hotel near Telluride Ski Resort

Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains’ San Juan Mountains range, Telluride has blossomed into one of Colorado’s premier ski destinations since the first chairlift opened roughly 40 years ago. Across the street from the main gondola at Telluride Ski Resort sits Hotel Columbia, a boutique hotel. It’s conveniently located in the downtown district near pedestrian-friendly shopping and scores of restaurants and bars, making it an ideal base for a Telluride skiing getaway.

After a long day out on the slopes, head to the hotel lobby for complimentary après-ski beverages, either hot tea or hot chocolate. For happy hour, the onsite Cosmopolitan Restaurant offers half-price sushi, shrimp, and calamari. Cosmopolitan owner and chef Chad Scothorn also curates a rotating menu of dinner entrees influenced by French, American Southwest, and Thai cuisines.

No two of the superior king guest rooms are the same, but many come with balconies, gas fireplaces, and small kitchenettes. In the morning, you can take advantage of a complimentary breakfast buffet stocked with pastries, quiches, fresh fruit, yogurt, housemade granola, and sliced meats and cheeses.

Telluride, Colorado: World-Class Skiing and Mountain-Town Charm

The historical ski town of Telluride is tucked into the majestic San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. Gold mining was Telluride's primary means of income in the early days. Once the first chairlift was put up in 1972, though, people started flocking to the charming mountain town for its fresh powder and steep slopes. Today, Telluride’s downtown is a preserved historical district filled with quaint shops, galleries, and restaurants. It has an active nightlife, too; you can grab a beer among locals at a number of unassuming saloons and pubs.

At the end of November, the first flakes signal the start of ski season. Only about 2,000 locals inhabit the town year-round; the crowds aren’t too heavy at the bordering Telluride Ski Resort during nonpeak periods. Unlimited day passes range from $65 to $106.

Though the resort is known for its steep slopes, there’s more to do in town than just downhill skiing. Popular winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, and sledding on Firecracker Hill in one of the town’s parks.
