Go My Favorite Place in Telluride Is Suspended in Air at 10,540 Feet

We only put 130 miles on our rented car— 65 miles to the Madeline, and 65 back to the airport. The car lived in the lap of luxury in the parking garage our entire stay, largely thanks to Telluride’s free gondola. Okay, this made my trip. It’s a 13-minute journey that takes you right into town, and it’s just steps from the Madeline. I would ride it up and down just for the 365-degree views of the San Juan mountains. If you’re lucky, you’ll even spot a bear from above. As if it couldn’t get better, half of the cabins are pet friendly, so I got my dose of furry, tail-wagging locals. Don’t miss out on a sunset ride, because you’ll see colors you didn’t even know existed. (Plus, on Fridays and Saturdays the lifts go until 2:00AM.)Stories from Madeline Hotel and Residences
