LAURENT’S TRIP TO TELLURIDE, COLORADO, US.

4 NIGHTS/1 STOP

 

Advanced skiing in a far west atmosphere. 
Along with 15 friends, we travelled  to Telluride for a long ski weekend. The combination of incredible skiing and after ski ambience made this trip unique. Telluride is a top notch north American ski resort with amazing landscapes and challenging ski trails.

4 NIGHTS
  • We stayed at Camels Garden Hotel. The location is perfect, next to the ski lifts (15 feet). The rooms are comfortable but not charming. I would come back with my family as the location is perfect.

RESTAURANTS

GOOD TO KNOW

 

  • The resort is located at an elevation of 8750 feet or 2667 m. It will take you some time to adjust to it. 
  • Early flight booking is needed to ensure reasonable pricing.
  • It’s a challenging ski terrain. I would choose another ski resort for beginners.
  • The access to the resort is not easy. The closest airport is a regional airport with few direct connections. The skiing experience is certainly worth the hassle to get there.
  • If you go off the beaten track, don’t forget to hire a mountain guide. The terrain is challenging and full of surprises.
  • My preferred internet sites to compare several ski resorts and to get the latest snow reports: 
    On the snow & Powderhounds.
