Join TCSC...

...for an incredible trip to southwestern Colorado! Telluride is a stunning ski town and is known as one of Colorado's best places to visit.  

We will be flying non-stop on United Airlines from Newark NJ to Colorado, then a short bus ride (1 hour, 15 min) to the Bear Creek Lodge, our condo, located in the mountain village of Telluride.  (Ground transportation from Endicott, NY is included, round-trip.)

Telluride ski resort boasts more than 2,000 skiable acres; 19 chair lifts, half of which are high-speed.  Of the 149 trails, 59% is beginner/intermediate terrain, 50% of the mountain is groomed... including some black diamonds!  Lift-served vertical drop is 3,790 feet, average snowfall is 280 inches, and longest run, "Galloping Goose" (double-green) is 4.6 miles.  Telluride is an EPIC mountain.

You can also investigate a number of other winter activities during your stay in Telluride including snowshoeing, dog-sledding, helicopter skiing, ice skating, ice climbing and more.

There are two villages to explore after a day of skiing...  the Mountain Village (where our condo is), and the town of Telluride, which is accessed by riding the free gondola down (no pass required).  Grab an après-ski or dine out in the many locations throughout, either on the mountain, or in the two villages.

Remember... your condo comes with a full kitchen.  We will be making a grocery stop when we arrive in Colorado on our way to the condos. There is also a grocery store / market store in the mountain village, too.  So eat in as much as you want, if you like... also, a group dinner out (included) has been scheduled for mid-week.
