It’s time for our group to head back to an old favorite. The hotel, the scenery, the mountain village, the best green runs to be found, ample scary steeps, and a wonderful and authentic town equal great memories to be made. Last year, our group grew to its largest number and we’re expecting much the same for 2023.

**IMPORTANT** Given our group size and the typically smaller restaurant venues in Telluride, we may need to limit some—or all—of our dinner events to invitees only and not accommodate guests. Well in advance of the event, we will clearly communicate capacity for each night and whether your guest can join us. Thanks for understanding!



We will enjoy luxurious ski-in/out accommodations at The Peaks Lodge located at 9,545’ in the heart of Mountain Village. The Peaks has a world-class spa for those looking for some relaxing down time. Our room block provides for King rooms at the rate of $499/night. The rooms will actually feature two (2) King beds.


  1. The above room rate does not include a $25/night resort fee + 12.65% state and local taxes.
  2. Reservations will require a deposit equal to one (1) night’s room cost + taxes.
  3. If you’re thinking about extending your stay, the above room block rates will be extended three (3) days pre & post the event dates of 1/6 – 1/10.

Dinner Events

In addition to enjoying each other’s company in Telluride, the purpose of this event is to network and share business ideas. After a day of energizing skiing, the perfect time to do this is over a relaxing and wonderful meal. We will be planning group dining events for each evening (Saturday – Tuesday) to maximize our time together.

I will provide details as the event gets closer.


As stated above, we may have to limit dinner events to invitees only due to restaurant venue capacity. Well in advance of the event, we will provide details regarding inclusion of guests at each dinner.
