After the crumby night in the truck and an absolutely rediculous day on the hill, we needed a warm bed and a shower. We checked into the Lumère. It was pure class and a far cry from the back of my truck. Comfortable beds, powerful showers, overstuffed couches, and a delicious breakfast buffet made this slopeside hotel in Telluride’s Mountain Village the perfect place to recharge. The staff took good care of us, a hugely appreciated perk of the hotel. Our boots were dried overnight. Our skis were at ready the next morning. There wasn’t much left for us to think about besides skiing.
