Telluride has a down town area with all the shops and fabulous restaurants and the ski village about 3 miles away as the crow flies or in this case as the gondola travels. The free gondola that connects the two main areas is assessable to both skiers and non-skiers and stops right out side the Camel's Garden. It would be impossible to have a more convenient location. Visitors can hop on the gondola or another ski lift that brings them right up to the top of the mountain. We rented the 3-bedroom condo #305 which directly overlooks the two lifts. Cathedral ceilings, updated kitchen and bathrooms, lot's of space on three levels. Even though it felt as if we were close enough to jump off our balcony onto the chairlift the condo was very quiet. All of Telluride including Camel's Garden is dog friendly.
There is access to ski rental store, a restaurant (casual BBQ) and a spa from the main lobby and a high end ski boot fitting shop right across the street. In addition the hotel is well known to two local vendors that helped make our stay at 9,500 feet more enjoyable - Ski Butlers (they bring the skis to you) and an oxygen concentrator that we rented and was waiting for us in our room. For those with altitude issues this could save your vacation.
We highly recommend a stay here and will be back ourselves.
