The Mountains and Our Colorado Mountain Homes for Rent
Picturesque Telluride is nestled in a box canyon, down between the snow-capped San Juan Mountains, with ski trails carved into their steep, craggy sides and alpine forests. The alpine-style Mountain Village sits about a thousand feet above Telluride, almost at the peak of the mountain.
Our mountain winter rentals feature soaring vaulted ceilings and expansive glass walls framing those stunning views. Many of our rentals have gorgeous, uninterrupted mountain views and are in-town or near Telluride, where the view is up the mountain. Others are on various spots on the mountain side itself, where you can look out over the historic town and the canyon, spectacular views of Ingram Falls as they tumble down the mountain, or views overlooking the San Miguel River.
Many of our Colorado mountain homes for rent are just steps away from ski lifts, a shuttle stop or the Gondola making it a breeze to get up and out on the slopes in no time. You can also book one of our ski-in/ski-out mountain rentals and just step out your door and get started.
Mountain Winter Rental Amenities
Those gorgeous, Instagram-worthy views are all around, and are one of the most important (if not the most important) aspects of selecting a vacation rental. Besides the view, our Telluride, Colorado mountain vacation rentals have all the comforts of home and everything you’ll need to make your dream mountain vacation a reality.
Choose from alpine-style chalets and timber mountain retreats, or modern townhomes and condos. All have fully equipped kitchens, with coffee makers, blenders, dishwashers, and microwaves. And all of our rentals have fireplaces too, so you can unwind in front of a hot, roaring fire while enjoying a few adult beverages. Not a bad way to end the day.
The majority of our Telluride, Colorado mountain homes for rent feature off-street parking, or even private garages and equipment storage. Book a rental with a hot tub out on the deck, and you can soothe those aching muscles away in style, under the stars while listening to the mournful sound of the coyotes. Each rental has a deck or balcony so you can sit out in the fresh mountain air, sipping that first cup of coffee as you plan the day’s activities.
Winter Activities on the Mountains
Downhill skiing and snowboarding are just minutes away when you’re on the mountain and Telluride Ski Resort has over 2,000 skiable acres ready for your enjoyment. The ski and snowboarding trails vary in length and difficulty, from nice and easy trails for beginners to treacherous black diamond runs for advanced skiers. And heli-skiing may have been banned in some countries, but it’s still alive here in Telluride. For an epic off-trail, downhill skiing, or snowboarding experience, give it a shot.
For more heart pounding adventures, try your hand at ice climbing. The beautiful cascading Bridal Veil Falls is one of the most difficult ice climbs in the country. Guided or on your own, it is just one of the many icy waterfalls in the area you can climb.
Cross-country skiers can enjoy special groomed trails or head out into the back country making their own way. Sled enthusiasts should head to Telluride Town Park for the best sledding in town. And the Park has both an indoor professional-grade ice rink and an outdoor rink. There are several spots to ice skate in Mountain Village too.
The mountain bike lovers in your group don’t have to sit out their favorite sport while there’s snow on the ground. Rent a fat bike – it can handle almost any trail no matter its condition with its soft, wide tires. Riders can enjoy a leisurely ride on historic trails or a thrilling single track.
Telluride Mountain Winter Rentals
When you need a break from all that outside, snowy fun, take things down a notch and do some sightseeing. Both historic downtown Telluride and the alpine-style Mountain Village have plenty of restaurants and bars ready to provide a local draft or two and snack, or a five-star dining experience. There are unique local shops to browse and art galleries to check out too.
