About Mike Riordan
We have been coming to Telluride for many years, after skiing and hiking most of the areas in Colorado and Utah. We fell in love with Telluride from the beginning, and started looking for a place to spend our summers away from the Texas heat. We also try to spend several weeks here in the winter, as school schedules permit. We are thrilled to be able to share this place we love with newcomers and experienced Telluride visitors alike.
Mike Riordan purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Mike Riordan chose Telluride Ski Resort
We purchased Telemark J in 2016 after looking in Telluride and Mountain Village for years. We were searching for that perfect place; one that combined livability, proximity to restaurants and shops, comfort, views, a great patio, and most importantly, amazing ski access. We have always loved skiing, but didn't like the process of carrying gear, walking long distances to slopes (especially at 9,500 feet!), and having to do it all in reverse at the end of the day. It is actually easier (and less expensive!) and takes less time to pop in for lunch than it does to enjoy a meal at one of the very good lodges, restaurants, and snack bars on the mountain. In the morning, you can leave the house at 8:55, put on your skis and ski a short distance to the Village Express lift, and still be early for the first 9:00 ride up the mountain. First tracks are always a possibility. In the summer, ride your mountain bike to the free gondola and take it to the St. Sophia station. From there, you can either go uphill to See Forever and some very challenging, spectacular trails (maybe give yourself a couple of days to acclimate), or let gravity take over and head down the Bike Park trails, or the Village Trail, and connect via Jurassic and Meadows Trail down to the Valley Floor. From there, head to Telluride and back up the gondola and do it again! Total time around 90 minutes. You will also enjoy the close proximity to the shops and restaurants of Mountain Village. Ski rentals are quick and easy, coffee shops and restaurants are nearby. Enjoy some Thai fusion at Talay, or small plates and sophisticated entrees and deserts at Bijou, stop in for craft beers and a meal at Tomboy Tavern, tapas at Village Table, ice cream and sandwiches at Tracks, Taco Tuesday and tasty meals at Black Iron - plus many more. For additional variety, 13 minutes on the free Gondola takes you to Telluride, with even more amazing dining and shopping opportunities.
What makes this Condo unique
Some of the best ski access in Telluride, easy in and easy out. Also one of the largest patios in Mountain Village, with a hot tub and gas grill. Sunny and bright, with beautiful views of the ski area, and spectacular yellow aspens in the fall. Right in town, but feels secluded due to it's location and position on the ski run.

Beautiful property, plenty of space, close to Mountain Village Gondola and shops/ restaurants. Quiet.
Perfect Mountain Village Stay
This property was fantastic. The location to the gondola and the huge deck were the high points for us. Mike was also a great host. He responded to all my questions quickly and was very accommodating when we requested to book the spot for an extra day and than an early check-in. The house was new and clean and was SO well stocked; nice kitchen knives, all the accessories you could need and they even had folding chairs and a wagon for us to use which was huge since we were there for Telluride Bluegrass. Overall- could not as for more.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was lovely
This was an absolutely perfect property for our family’s ski vacation this year. Being able to walk down a short sidewalk, click into our skis, and cruise down a quick green run to the lift and the village made the trip so easy. We definitely did not need a car because the free gondola took us anywhere we needed to go.
The unit was very clean (a huge priority for me) and the beds were comfortable with nice, quality bedding. There were plenty of towels, dishes, etc., and the place was well stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, and tissues.
The overall feeling was that we were staying in a comfortable, cozy, and welcoming home. We just left this morning and we already miss it.
Thank you for everything.
The Levy Family
Wow. I rarely write reviews of anything, but I had to take the time to thank Mike and his family for allowing us to enjoy this wonderful condo. This is a really nice unit, very upscale and will impress you. As someone else said, pictures don't do it justice.
I stayed with my family of 4, (2 adults and 2 children ages 11 and 10) and it was perfect. Beautiful views, the location is very convenient. The beds are high end, very comfortable. Decorated with outstanding taste. One of the best ski vacations we have had! Thanks again!

It was absolutely better than the pictures and a great location for skiers and non skiers!
Telluride is the best ski location! The snow was perfect this year
