Lumière has announced that it will open its doors in partnership with Inspirato this coming winter. Following a property-wide renovation, one of the most extensive completed at the property since they first opened in 2008, the reopening will debut the majority of the updates made to the property in Telluride. The property’s new look, designed by Inner Living, is the continuation of The Reimagine Project launched by the owners earlier this year.
Visitors will be welcomed by a more modern look and upscale atmosphere upon arrival to Telluride’s luxury boutique hotel situated high in the San Juan Mountains. Made up of 18 one- to five-bedroom residences and penthouses, each individual space has been restyled and redesigned to exude an organic, modern feel that evokes its own personality. From linens to the dining table, they pair clean lines, a lighter color palette and natural fabrics.
The furniture, fashioned and polished, is designed to evoke understated luxury. It was a fundamental factor to the hotel owners that the property continues to pay homage to the 140-year-old town as they decorate spaces and residences with bygone mining and skiing elements integral to the fabric of Telluride.
The December 14 opening is just the beginning of Lumière with Inspirato’s 2018-19 ski season. With more direct flights and a robust air schedule, travelers have convenient access to the ski area. Daily flights are available from major cities including New York/Newark, Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Atlanta and select service from Charlotte and Salt Lake City to Montrose Telluride Airport (MTJ).
United Airlines has also partnered with Boutique Air to offer year-round service from Denver directly into Telluride Regional Airport (TEX), making it easier to get from the jet way to the ski lift.
Prior to arrival, guests can arrange their equipment rentals through Lumière’s exclusive partnership with Black Tie Ski Rentals. They provide in-room fittings making for a seamless ski-in/ski-out experience direct from the mountainside property.
To enhance this year’s Telluride ski vacation, the award-winning ski resort has joined the Epic Pass for the 2018-19 season. The Epic Pass, created by Vail Resorts, gives skiers and snowboards access to over 45 mountain resorts including day passes (without blackout dates), discounted lift tickets and direct access to lift lines, bypassing the ticket window completely.
