Perched atop a ridge at 12,200 feet in one of the most spectacular settings in the Rocky Mountains, Telluride Ski Resort’s Tempter House is one of the most unique and highest elevation homes in North America.
"The mountains are in your face. The view is so striking -- the beauty of the place is etched in my mind."
Located at 12,200 feet adjacent to the famous Gold Hill, the home overlooks Telluride Ski & Golf Resort and the dramatic 2,000 vertical foot Tempter Chute. Amenities include: steam shower, jacuzzi tub, pool table, sub zero appliances, ski-in/ski-out accommodations, log fireplaces, feather beds, the finest linens and spectacular views from all rooms.
Tempter House was built between 1996 and 2000 by David Eckley, an internationally recognized marathon runner who was a member of the Fila Sky Runner Team. He was undefeated in the Masters Class of the series for 3 years. This unique and luxurious five level house derives its name from its location above Tempter Chute. Built by hand with the finest stone collected from the ski area, this exquisite home is an architectural wonder. Anne Eckley, David's mother, who is registered nationally at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, designed the house.
An Evening For Two:
Your evening begins with dinner for two at your choice of Allred’s Restaurant, Telluride’s flagship restaurant located at the top of the gondola (elevation 10,554 feet) or Alpino Vino, the highest elevation fine dining restaurant in North America (elevation 11,966 feet). A $300 wine credit is included so you can sample some of the extraordinary wines offered.
After dinner, you are whisked away to Tempter House on snowmobiles by members of the Telluride Ski Patrol. The climb straight up the mountain at night will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
An attendant awaits your arrival to help you settle in and provide turn-down service. The attendant and Ski Patrol will then depart, with the Ski Patrol available throughout your stay for your convenience.
The night is yours. Relax by the fireplace, enjoy the steam shower, Jacuzzi, and the ever-so-comfortable feather beds.
