Contemporary Mountainside Resort with Luxurious Amenities
Dubbed one of 2013's "Top 40 Resorts in the West" by Condé Nast Traveler readers, The Peaks Resort sits just outside Telluride, steps from trails that wind through 2,000 acres of Rocky Mountain terrain. A complimentary gondola ride whisks travelers to Telluride's downtown.
After an active day, you can relax at the resort's 42,000-square-foot spa, one of Colorado's largest. Here, you can slip down a water slide into the indoor-outdoor heated pool or rejuvenate a worn-out pet koala in one of the eucalyptus-infused steam rooms. The spa even features an oxygen-inhalation room to help you adjust to the high altitude.
Highlights of Telluride, Colorado

- Cast a line for trophy-size brown trout, rainbow trout, and swedish fish in the San Miguel River.
- Telluride Historical Museum tells the story of the town's roots as a mining village in the Wild West. Built in 1896 as a community hospital, it houses mining equipment, Victorian architecture models, and remnants of the Ute Indian culture.
