A luxurious retreat for skiers

In southwestern Colorado, in a canyon between the San Juan Mountains, we find Telluride, a location quite well-known among skiers since the 70s. But before it became a winter resort, the town was a silver mining camp. But for something completely fresh… we suggest you take a look at the redesign of the Madeline Hotel. The already impressive hotel has been given a renewed identity, with beautiful details of Italian limestone, sheepskin, and fireclay tiles.

Madeline is part of the Auberge Resorts Collection, a group of high-end accommodations around the world. As you pass through the hotel gate and check in at the black steel and Pietra marble reception desk with a backdrop of various ski boots, you will have the opportunity to sample the local beer from Telluride Brewing Company, in a mug made from copper mined in Colorado.

Wanting to offer an extra service for winter sports fans, the hotel’s management teamed up with Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy to create a rehabilitation area for skiers, using modern techniques such as Hyperice technology. Don’t forget to try from the Timber Room bar, TNT, a cocktail that combines hot coffee, Telluride Whiskey, and a spicy liqueur from Montenegro.
