A Colorado mining boomtown until the 1890s, Telluride revived its fortunes in the ’60s and ’70s as a world-class ski resort, averaging 177 inches of snowfall a year. With its stay-small development ethos, Telluride has preserved its Old West architecture and village ambience, and drawn celebrities in droves. 

 

Nestled on a wooded hillside overlooking the Mountain Village Core, this palatial mountain lodge boasts direct access to Telluride’s world-class pistes, close to village amenities and the gondola. The home’s bold stone and timber façade integrates perfectly with its setting. Inside, exquisite architectural elements include a two-story, circular staircase; cherrywood cabinetry and doors; and marble and flagstone floors. There are five bedrooms, including two master suites, eight bathrooms, a family room with wet bar and fireplace, a theater, an elevator, and a ski room opening to the trail.
