Warm Up Apres-Ski in Telluride, Colorado

Posted November 3, 2009 by Kate Hamman

CO-Telluride-Town-DEF Telluride attracts ski enthusiasts and adventure junkies throughout the year, but the slopes really heat up when the weather cools down. However, after you've spent most of the day playing outdoors, you can experience a town that seems worlds away from the afternoon adrenaline rush. Wander through a bookstore filled with amazing adventures, or warm your tummy with a hot-from-the-oven slice of pizza. And once your heart rate has finally slowed, you can return to your historical lodging for a dip in a roof-top hot tub with a mighty view.

Between the Covers Bookstore and Espresso Bar: Between the Covers tempts you to come in from the cold with hot beverages and insightful literature. From Hemingway to Rick Steves, this nifty bookstore overflows with fictional worlds and local Telluride guidebooks. You can also combat the whipping winds with a cup of hot cocoa by your side. Books are priced accordingly, but it's free to browse.

Baked in Telluride: There's nothing like the scent of fresh baked breads, pizza crusts, and pastries to wake you up in the morning, noon, or night, and Baked in Telluride is a surefire eye-opener. Taking inspiration from far flung destinations around the world, owner Jerry Greene's menu includes New York-style pizzas alongside Nepalese samosas. Sandwiches start at $5.79, but don't miss the Thursday Thanksgiving special each week for $12.99.

New Sheridan Hotel: For more than 100 years, the New Sheridan Hotel has been a hotspot for weary snow bunnies. The Victorian-style hotel greets you with its historic charm and modern amenities, including roof-top hot tubs with sweeping views of the San Juan Mountains. During your stay, you'll enjoy a complimentary breakfast, well-stocked drink pantry, and home-baked chocolate chip cookies. Rooms start at $129, depending on the season.
