We had NO idea we would love Colorado as much as we did. We are already planning our trip here in the summer for some mountain biking.
We decided to go to Telluride for Thanksgiving for a few reasons:
- Every person we have ever met who visited Telluride has said it is amazing.
- THE PICTURES ONLINE SOLD ME–> mini Switzerland.
- It is only 6 hours away from us.
- It gave us a chance to ski before our resort opens.
- It felt like the perfect getaway with our kids, and it was.
We stayed in Mountain Village, which was right at the base of the Telluride ski resort. We could ski right into the condo we stayed in (here is the link, we loved it so much, and they had everything we could ever need).
One of the biggest highlights for the kids was the free Gondola rides that you can take… just a 12-minute ride to Telluride from Mountain Village. The views were unreal, and Beck could have stayed on these all day. We never had to use our car once while we were there; we just took a Gondola or walked.
The resort area we stayed in had little Gondolas all over the place to eat in… with seat warmers and a heater. The restaurants were so good, we loved ice skating there, and the shopping was great. There was also a market where you take a Gondola to it, so we ate a lot at our condo.
This was my first trip in a long time where I didn’t run the entire trip (besides when I made a 15-second Reel ha). I wanted to give my body some time off and soak up waking up later and staying with everyone the whole time. Also, I’m not even sure I could have run there; just going up the stairs felt like the biggest workout because of the elevation.
It was a great change and something I need to do more often on our trips.
We did get in some cross-training;) by ice skating… falling on the ice hurts more and more the older I get. I may have to retire from ice skating.
Back to regular programming today!
