And while you’re on your ski vacation, be sure to spend some time in Mountain Village’s Heritage Plaza, located just seven miles outside the town of Telluride- or take a short, free and scenic gondola ride from town. Heritage Plaza is the heart of Mountain Village Core, just steps from the gondola station and filled with vibrant shops and restaurants. Inside Heritage Plaza there are many kiosks including homemade doughnuts, crepes, and hot diggity dogs. Have a seat on your own private picnic table and enjoy a beer with the adults while the kids play in the bungee cord trampoline area. Enjoy the ice sculptures that remain in the plaza during most of the winter, and the remarkable views that the mountains have to offer. Take advantage of the newly opened, full-service Mountain Village Ice Rink, located next to Hotel Madeline. Kids five years and younger skate for free. Heritage Plaza is a perfect place for families, tourists, or anyone wanting to just take a break and reconnect after a day on the slopes.
