Colorado’s Telluride Ski Resort ( has been receiving epic amounts of powder this winter, giving it one of the largest amounts of snow in Colorado. Telluride is one of the most highly ranked, and yet relatively undiscovered, ski and boarding destinations in North America with over 300 inches of powder, 2,000 acres of skiing, 125 trails, and 4,425 feet of vertical bliss; and no lift lines! P.S. don’t miss the “Plunge” or “Revelation Bowl”, and don’t forget to ride the free gondolas between the Victorian town, the ski slopes, shopping, and parking. Great restaurants, bars and night life await you — Telluride’s got it all for ski and apr├Ęs ski. Telluride’s partner in this package is the Chipeta Solar Springs Resort (, just outside of Telluride, which has been voted one of “COLORADO’S TOP 10 INNS” and is a “CERTIFIED GREEN HOTEL” with a unique Santa Fe style adobe architecture, featuring boutique decorator rooms, and active / passive solar heating of its buildings and HOT SOAKING POOLS.

The best way to Ski Telluride and save big money on lodging and lift tickets is to enjoy “Southwest With Style” at the Chipeta Solar Springs Resort and then drive or take the shuttle an easy 40 minutes to the slopes. This will save you 60% to 80% of what it costs to ski and stay in the town of Telluride, and at the Chipeta there are no blackout dates or holiday rates. The Chipeta is an “ELITE RETREAT”, where you will be treated to luxurious boutique rooms, a Great Room with fireplace that is a two story botanical garden, an on-site award winning Spa with massage therapy and yoga, a complete Fitness Center, solar heated Thermal Pools to swim or soak in, and an attentive staff that will make your visit most memorable. Be sure to try Chipeta’s signature homemade granola with natural yogurt at our continental breakfast each morning. The Chipeta Resort is located in Ridgway, a quaint mountain village in the beautiful Uncompahgre Valley, which was made famous as the filming site for the movie, “True Grit”.

The Chipeta resort is centrally located in Ridgway, Colorado, which is the starting point of the National Scenic Byway, “The San Juan Skyway”. Many of Southwest Colorado’s attractions are a short drive from the Chipeta, such as Telluride, Silverton, Ouray, Ridgway Reservoir, Black Canyon of the Gunnisson National Park and Mesa Verde National Park. Telluride and the Chipeta Resort are your headquarters for numerous winter sports’ activities, such as skiing, snowboarding, nordic skiing, heli-skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, ice climbing and ice skating.
