(April 21, 2014) — The first Sunday in April traditionally marks the closing of the Telluride Ski Resort and a period of time locals refer to as “offseason” in Telluride, Colorado. While some merchants shut their doors and take a month long hiatus to migrate to warmer climates, a handful stay open providing visitors with quality dining and shopping options. Telluride Alpine Lodging is offering a buy one night get one free online exclusive lodging special through telluridehotels.com allowing those in search of an affordable and relaxing getaway the opportunity to visit the charming mountain town.
Even though it’s coined “offseason” there are plenty of attractions to keep vacationers busy. Did you know Telluride, Colorado is home to Bridal Veil Falls, Colorado’s longest free falling waterfall? Sightseers are able to drive close to the base of the falls and easily view the waterfall from their vehicle. As the snow continues to melt, hikers are able to walk to the top of the waterfall and enjoy breathtaking views of the Town of Telluride. A short hike to Cornet Creek Falls is another great way to spend the afternoon during “offseason.” The trek is less than a mile round trip and offers amazing views of the Telluride Ski Resort and Cornet Creek Falls. Hikers can also enjoy Telluride’s scenic beauty by hiking to the top of the Jud Wiebe Trail. This three mile loop offers panoramic views of the Town of Telluride while climbing roughly 1,100 feet in elevation through a grove of Aspen trees. If that’s not enough to get your blood flowing, The Bear Creek Trail is a five mile roundtrip hike easily accessible from town. Even strolling along the San Miguel River trail that runs through the middle of town is a great way to breathe in the fresh mountain air while taking in spectacular views.
After a nice hike, visitors can enjoy an award winning slice of pizza or beer at Brown Dog, Telluride’s family friendly sports bar on Main Street. Brown Dog’s pizza was judged as the World’s Best Pizza in the American pan division with a 1st place finish at the International Pizza Expo 2013. Chase down a slice of pizza with a tall glass of beer from the Telluride Brewing Company. The Brown Dog serves a variety of Telluride Brewing Company beer on tap including their Face Down Brown which won a Gold Medal at the esteemed World Beer Cup in 2013. For breakfast, Telluride’s iconic bakery Baked in Telluride is open during the “offseason”. It’s a great place to grab a cup of coffee, breakfast burrito or donut while soaking in the views of Ajax Mountain from their front porch.
