Telluride Ski Trip Recap

Published on 3/31/2024

This trip did not disappoint! Telluride is one of the most beautiful, scenic places we have skied! The drive into Telluride was beautiful as was the view from the top of the mountain! Every direction you looked was a snow-covered peak!

We arrived at Bear Creek lodge Saturday evening and were greeted with a wine and cheese party provided by a mountain host who gave us a rundown of the area, answered lots of questions as well as providing us all with real paper maps! (Something that is becoming hard to find at most resorts).

We had easy access to the slopes or the gondola via a free on call shuttle. We had the same driver most of the week, he was even able to locate some of us one evening when we got turned around in the middle village and couldn’t find the pickup spot.

The gondola was free for all, ran late into the night and you could take it to the middle village or a 13-minute ride up over the mountain then down into Telluride. Several trips were made into town for shopping, sightseeing or socializing.

The skiing was great! Lift lines were very short and in some areas, we had the slopes to ourselves! We got several inches of snow Tuesday, which made for a fun powder day in and out of the trees.

We did all get together for socializing, a group photo and a lasagna meal one evening. (Thanks again Jane, it was excellent.)

The condos were all fairly close together and were very nice. They were large and well equipped with a nice pool and a couple hot tubs for us to enjoy. Overall, we had very positive reviews on the trip and everyone seemed to really enjoy the resort. It’s somewhere I look forward to revisiting again!!
