TELLURIDE PLAY BOOTDOCTORS’ FATBIKE & BREW TOUR Saddle up on one of these all-terrain mountain bikes with oversize tires, and guides will lead you through snow, mud, stream crossings and flat groomed trails along the box canyon’s scenic valley floor. To conclude, you’ll pedal to Telluride Brewing Company to toast your grit with Bridal Veil Rye Pale Ales.
EAT THERE From the founders of New York’s Nobu 57, this hole-in-the wall bar and restaurant serves creative cocktails and shareable plates of Asian-inspired street food steamed crispy duck buns, king-crab ramen and Kobe-beef kushiyaki skewers.
STAY INN AT LOST CREEK High atop Mountain Village just steps from the gondola into town, this ski-in/ski-out boutique hotel has 32 suites, all with a fireplace, balcony and kitchenette. Tip: Reserve one of its private rooftop hot tubs with some of the best views in Telluride.
STEAL A KISS ALLRED’S RESTAURANT At the top of Telluride’s town gondola is this handsome log and stone restaurant with exposed wooden beams, elk-horn chandeliers and hewn wood furniture. Arrive early to score a window seat, which is the very best spot to watch the alpenglow while dining on bourbon-marinated elk loin.
