Not only is Telluride a winter mecca for downhill skiers and snowboarders, but this former Victorian mining town also offers incredible adventures beyond the slopes, including some of the best and most accessible backcountry cross-country skiing and fat biking suitable for all skill levels, two excellent ways to explore Telluride’s beautiful backcountry where the snow is pure and nature is untouched.
This winter season, The Hotel Telluride, a 59-room luxury boutique Rocky Mountains meets European chalet-style hotel located in the heart of Telluride, is partnering with San Juan Outdoor Adventures, a fully insured USDA Forest Service permitted outfitter located in Telluride, brings Telluride’s backcountry to the forefront with a new and exclusive ‘Skinny Skis & Fat Tires’ adventure package (all gear is provided and no previous experience is required).
The package includes a four-night stay in a Signature room (with a private balcony - many overlooking the San Juan Mountains), daily breakfast for two, guided full-day backcountry cross-country skiing and fat biking experiences and, upon return to the hotel each afternoon, choice of a “Thin Mint” spiked hot chocolate (made with Telluride Distilling Company’s “Chairlift Warmer” Peppermint Schnapps) or a Telluride Brewing Company beer, with a snack, by a roaring fire in The Hotel Telluride’s lobby.
The Hotel Telluride's new 'Skinny Skis & Fat Tires' package is available from December 20, 2019 - April 30, 2020 and starts from $1,698.00 (based on double occupancy, weather conditions and blackout dates apply). And, getting to Telluride is easy this winter with NEW flight service between Denver and Telluride Regional Airport offered by Denver Air Connection, once daily (round trip).
