Live the ski-in/ski-out lifestyle

Avid adventurers call Telluride their spiritual home, drawn as much by some of the most diverse terrain in North America as they are to its singular natural beauty, where red rocks rise from the canyon floor and the snowy peaks of the San Juan Mountains loom majestically ahead, The luckiest among them get to live the dream, spending their days on the sun-drenched slopes and coming home to a box canyon paradise lined with colorful clapboard-fronted shops and Victorian buildings. Make small-town Telluride your very own small-town heaven with one of our 48 artfully designed two-to-five-bedroom residences, situated just steps away from a slice of the historic Old Wild West. With ski-in, ski-out access and all of our luxury resort amenities at your fingertips, you’ll feel right at home with our version of relaxed slope-side living—and with the Element 52 family.

Go Telluride’s High-Altitude Secrets
