Contemporary Mountainside Resort with Luxurious Amenities
Snow-capped mountains line the sprawling landscape outside the windows. Walls of paneled glass frame the majestic Rocky Mountains at the onsite Palmyra Restaurant. Nestled in the heart of Telluride's vibrant mountain village, The Peaks Resort seamlessly integrates into its tranquil alpine surroundings with its tiered windows and mid-mountain access. A roaring fire warms ski legs at Palmyra Bar, The Peaks' lodge-inspired bar and lounge outfitted with commodious club chairs and a heated deck. Palmyra Restaurant serves elegant country fare and deconstructed cocktails. The resort also houses a 42,000-square-foot spa, one of the largest in Colorado, where guests can whisk down the indoor pool's water slide or rejuvenate a worn-out pet koala at the eucalyptus-infused steam rooms.
Telluride's consistent stream of sunlight—which appears, on average, 300 days per year—cascades through the large picture windows in each of the Sunset Vista rooms, which look out to romantic mountain sunsets. Rooms feature pillow-top king-size mattresses and flat-screen TVs, and double-sink vanities anchor the modern bathrooms.
Telluride, Colorado: Historical Mining Town with World-Class Outdoor Attractions
Less than half a mile from the hotel, Telluride Ski Resort features 1,700 skiable acres of light powder snow blanketed across the San Juan Mountains. The Village Express escorts patrons to beginner and intermediate terrain, Village Bypass is a smooth, easier ride, and Humboldt Draw trail has a bumpy, sinuous track. Plunge lift presents sprawling views of the area and ascends the mountain's westernmost peak, which is angled with steep drops. The moderate-terrain Ute Park Express is a good place to start for aspiring freestyle skiers, who can test out its basic jumps and ride-on boxes. Telluride is known to enjoy a texturally consistent snow base, and its remote location renders lines and vagrant snowmen nearly nonexistent.
The town's roots as a revolutionary mining village and a Wild West saloon market are put on display at Telluride Historical Museum, which resides fewer than 10 miles from The Peaks Resort. Built in 1896 as a community hospital, the landmark houses artifacts including mining equipment, Victorian architecture models, and remnants of the Ute Indian culture.
