The gold rush brought an entire city to the Colorado town of Telluride. Now, 100 years later, skiers are discovering a different kind of gold ~ The unrivaled beauty of the peaks and valleys blending with culture to give this big time ski hill a small-town feel.
Just one of many reasons why celebrities like Tom Cruise, Oprah and even Thomas Rhett have discovered the 4-season paradise with a laid-back attitude where locals say they came for the winter but stayed for the summer.
“Our goal is to make the vacation experience hassle-free,” explained Rick Houston of the Fairmont Heritage Place Franz Klammer Lodge.
In fact, once you get to Telluride, you don’t need a car because the free Gondola, with beautiful views of the 14-thousand foot peaks, takes you to anywhere you need to go.
Plus, you can find everything from family restaurants to fine dining in Telluride. And if you want to reward yourself after a day shredding, you can indulge in some pampering with a relaxing spa treatment at Fairmont Heritage Place Franz Klammer Lodge’s Hemel Spa.
