Smith Ski, San Juan Mountains
Welcome to Smith Ski: our dazzling portfolio of luxe lodges, ski resorts and slopeside stays. We've handpicked the finest luxury self-catering ski chalets – all with a unique Smith blend of boutique-hotel style and service – as well as the most appealing ski resort hotel accommodation. Whether you’re looking for privacy with your partner, planning a party with pals, or booking a family ski break, we've got it covered.
Adrenaline-seekers can get their fill with the one-day heli-ski excursions around the Telluride basin at 10,000 to 14,000 feet – some of the highest elevations in North America. Professional ski guide service including state of-the-art powder skis or snowboard, poles, an avalanche transceiver and safety orientation is provided. You’ll be packed off with a gourmet lunch and snacks from Dunton Hot Springs’ kitchen, and be picked up and returned directly from town by helicopter.
And skiers of all levels can take to the slopes with two days ski passes, ski rental and transfers for world-class downhill skiing in Telluride (a 90-minute drive from the resort). This legendary mountain – with over 2,000 skiable acres, 127 trails and 18 lifts – is known for its crowd-free, wide open runs.
At a lower elevation (but no less exciting), embark on a full-day guided snowmobiling adventure (including a warm picnic lunch) to the snow-blanketed alpine meadows inaccessible by car during the winter. Tours vary from groomed trail rides to aggressive back country trips, and knowledgeable guides educate guests about the area’s history and natural wonders.
No matter what adventures your stay has in store, relax with a 75-minute signature couples body-scrub treatment and massage in the secluded bath house.
