Summer in the San Juan mountains is a magical time.
Telluride, CO (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
lumière, telluride listens to their guests. After the success of adding Vacation Extras to their website, this top-of-the-line luxury boutique hotel has created a whole new Adventure page on their website so that future guests can know what outdoor adventures are available, and they can request the services before their arrival in Telluride. lumière telluride is enchanted with all things outdoor and adventure, and in Telluride there is an extreme sport waiting around every mountain.
“Summer in the San Juan mountains is a magical time,” said newly appointed lumière telluride General Manager Clare Evans. “High mountain flowers are spectacular, the air is crisp and clean, and the green of the aspen trees against our bluebird skies makes every day outside unforgettable. It is our goal that our guests will get to fulfill every wish for every outdoor ambition, from hiking to mountain biking, from fly fishing to rock climbing, or jeeping to horseback riding.”
There are many adventures to choose from, and lumière telluride works with Telluride’s premier source for mountain adventures, the San Juan Outdoor School. There are half day and full day privately guided experiences that include rock climbing, mountaineering, non-technical and technical peak ascents, and the Via Ferrata climbing experience.
Telluride Outside guide service offers the Galloping Goose Downhill Bike Tour. Riders pedal a mountain bike through spectacular high country along the route of the Galloping Goose railway. This beginner-friendly guided tour begins on Lizard Head Pass at over 10,000ft, then winds around two subalpine lakes. It descends into the magnificent South Fork Valley of the San Miguel River, traveling 17 miles of downhill and level terrain. Telluride Outside also has 4 Wheel Drive tours through the lush summer high country, and they will customize photo tours that showcase iconic mountain vistas such as Wilson Peak, Bear Creek, and the view from Imogene Pass.
Whether it’s an unplanned hour or a full day, Telluride has a plethora of hiking trails to suit all levels. Leading right from the steps of lumière, there is a trail to follow and the hotel can arrange for packed lunches for a mid-day expedition. Explorations can also be in a rented SUV to cover more ground and to experience some of the country’s top ranked scenic byways.
The luxurious lumière telluride has earned four stars for its beauty and its excellent service, but it remains intimate and focused on each guest’s expectations. The hotel’s Concierge continues to arrange for dinners, massages, babysitting and many other requested services. This ultra chic setting features a house restaurant that serves fresh sushi, and a welcoming bar that can pour or mix whatever the moment calls for. In the summer, cocktails and sushi are served outside at the relaxing patio area at the pool. Each morning begins with a European style breakfast that’s quite a bit more than just a bagel and a banana. Room service is also available.
lumière telluride is now a top choice for family weddings, celebrations and reunions in all seasons. For those coming to Telluride for one of the famous events like the Bluegrass Festival in June, the Yoga Festival in July, or the internationally acclaimed Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day, lumière telluride will package festival tickets with lodging.
Telluride, Colorado, as a destination, is very well known for different reasons in different seasons and is now even more accessible with new additional flights into Montrose on American and United Airlines. Whether one goes for the dazzling snow sports in winter, the diverse festivals held all summer, or the eye popping star power of the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day, this somewhat remote community in the shadow of the breathtaking San Juan Mountains offers activities that range from cultural and educational to true outdoor adventure.
