Element 52 comprises 33 new two- to five-bedroom slopeside residences and townhouses managed by Auberge Resorts. The development wraps around a spa and fitness facility and is bordered by the San Miguel River, an open space easement and the slopes of Telluride Resort. The residences range from 1,400 to 5,700 square feet, and each has been uniquely decorated by its owner.
Bed and Bath
The residences promise a big master suite and plenty of room for the family. For example, West 201 mixes mod Scandinavian furnishings with Native American art, including a bunkroom with a steel bunk and sleeping loft accessed by matching ladder, and a master bedroom with a cube-framed bed backed by a photo-cum-headboard of a Native American chief in full regalia. The master suite in River House B sprawls over the entire third floor and features a gas fireplace by the bed and a spa-like bathroom with steam shower, soaking tub and mountain views. Every unit is airy and open, with picture windows, a kitted-out kitchen, an expansive mountain-view deck and a gas fireplace.
Every element of this Auberge Resort has been designed to maximize the outdoors. Ride the private funicular to the slopeside ski valet and locker room, where the attendants have your boots toasty warm and your skis ready to slide. At the end of the day, ski back in, shed your gear and zip down to the intimate spa, where every treatment is customized.
In the Area
Telluride Ski Resort’s Revelation Bowl is exactly that. It’s steep when you want it, but mellows out into a quarter-pipe slide on the shredder’s far left. In the summer, the terrain becomes an adrenaline junkie’s dream; sign up to go paragliding, whitewater rafting, horeseback riding or rock climbing. The on-mountain dining at Telluride puts other resorts’ cafeteria-style offerings to shame. At the top of the Polar Queen Express lift, Bon Vivant has French country fare and stunning views; pair a glass of Bordeaux with the lamb and Chimay Ale stew. Après, try Telluride Brewing Company’s Ski-in-Ski-Stout at Tomboy Tavern, then catch the gondola into town for dinner at There; the Colorado-Asian fusion small plates include crispy duck breast, steamed buns and rare wagyu steak served with four dipping sauces.
How to Get There
Excellent service, location and amenities. The room views were amazing. The hot tubs even had great views. The service was top notch. The freshly baked cookies were delicious. Front desk/ concierge were helpful with dinner recommendations.
We had a fantastic time in Telluride and enjoyed the Element 52 immensely. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The condo was great ! We all enjoyed the Jacuzzi after a day of ski. The car-service brought you to dinner and picked you up was a plus. Didn't use our car during our stay. The ski valet was very helpful and he had our equipment ready. Alex and his staff were amassing. Can't wait to go back in the fall !
