There is almost nothing on earth as heavenly as winter in Telluride — marshmallow-colored mountains bask in the sunny, bluebird days, and at night, the whole town glows with the twinkling lights strung on the shops and stores and the same seasonal atmosphere is felt at Hotel Madeline Telluride. Winter is undoubtedly the peak season, and the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel has the best location for skiers and snowboarders because of its direct access to the ski resort. Located on the slopes, Hotel Madeline is a true ski-in, ski-out property. However, the magic doesn’t fade after the snow melts. The San Juan Mountains are by far the most beautiful and scenic in Colorado, and the views rival those of any mountain range in the world. The aspen trees only get more striking in the fall, when they turn to gold, and it is warm enough to take advantage of the luxury resort’s hiking and mountain biking trails, which are easily accessed without a car from Hotel Madeline. You can reach the trails on foot or by taking the gondola, which leaves from the plaza right outside the Telluride hotel.
