WHAT ACTIVITIES DO YOU RECOMMEND BESIDES SKIING?
- Ride a snowcat up the mountainside to a one-of-a-kind fine dining experience at 11,966 ft. Alpino Vino will not disappoint.
- Take an overnight excursion to the ghost town re-imagined as an exclusive, luxury resort – Dunton Hot Springs.
- Gather your family and your skates for some fun at the ice rink. Head to the Hanley Indoor Rink in Town or to Reflection Plaza by the Hotel Madeline in Mountain Village.

- Schedule a private wine and delectable pairing class with Top Chef Eliza Gavin.
Most of these activities require pre-registration to comply with covid-safe procedures and may require proof of vaccination or a negative covid test.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CURRENT REAL ESTATE MARKET?
San Miguel County real estate sales have surpassed $1b through the end of September and are on track to eclipse last year’s $1.16b record. Read Telluride Properties 2021 3rd quarter market report HERE. Telluride is clearly maturing quickly and with its limited supply, suggests continued appreciation.
