News about Mountain Lodge Telluride
Telluride, located deep in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado, is in the midst of their ski season. When this year's snows melt, "the world-class ski slopes of Telluride will turn verdant green," says Neil Hastings, director of sales and marketing for Mountain Lodge at Telluride. "That sets the stage for superb hiking, biking, horseback riding, wildflower viewing and every other outdoor activity."
