We've stayed in Resort Quest properties in ski country before, but the Double Diamond condos in Telluride didn't measure up for the money. The location was good walking distance to Lift #7, but the condo itself wasn't laid out very well -- narrow entrance up stairs to first level with 2 small bedrooms and baths and then up another level to small living room and kitchen (a third bathroom is a plus on this floor). It felt cramped even though it had the bedding and bathrooms for 2 adults and 3 kids. The hot tub on the property is a joke, and there are no amenities and no ambiance. In this area, the better units were at the adjacent Ettta Place condos. But I would stay closer to the gondola next time, which is closer to the action in town and much easier skiing in and out. The free Galloping Goose bus system is great, and the Double Diamond complex is right on the bus line, but stay near the gondola if you can. Still, Telluride is an unrivaled ski area and a charming mountain town in a magical mountain setting in the San Juans.
