Responsible tourism: Telluride lodge in Colorado, USA
Telluride boasts fantastic skiing in winter and all kinds of outdoor activities in the Summer, from fly fishing to river rafting. This charming small town benefits from spectacular natural surroundings all year round. Once you're in the local area there's really no need for a car, everywhere is within walking distance and there's nothing better than strolling around breathing the crisp mountain air! Places to eat and stock up on groceries are easy to reach, and we can also arrange a pre-arrival grocery delivery with you to get you started. Low impact activities including horseback riding, fly fishing and rafting in the summer, and snowshoeing, dogsledding and ice climbing can be arranged in the winter!
At the Lodge itself we are always finding ways to streamline our sustainability efforts. We've implemented an effective recycling policy and try to reuse wherever possible to reduce waste. We try to minimise plastic waste by offering reusable glasses to guests as much as possible and choosing a sustainable bottled water supplier. We're conscious of water usage and always aim to reduce waste as water in the mountains is especially precious! We offer guests the opportunity to choose how often they'd like their towels washed to save on water.
The landscape here is ecologically sensitive and we organise 'weed pulling' days with our staff where we go around and hand pull weeds that can dominate the landscape and overpower other more sensitive flora and fauna species. There is also a grow dome where we grow our own vegetables and herbs which are then used in the locals school cafeteria with minimal food miles. We celebrate earth hour and hold an event where lights are turned out to raise awareness of how important saving energy is for the environment.
We're an EcoAction certified Green Business and have been assessed on our sustainability efforts. We will continue to maximise our Energy Efficiency & Conservation, Waste Reduction, Water Conservation efforts whilst providing people with a fantastic base to explore the wonderful outdoor environment that surrounds us.
We want to make Telluride the best place it can be both to live in and visit, and we have worked on projects that benefit the community including litter picks across our section of the highway, and weed pulls to help more sensitive flora and fauna to thrive. We provide employment and a great work environment for our employees, and we always aim to contribute to their development. We always support events which showcase the work of local vendors and we regularly hold events on site which are open to the wider community to help raise awareness and funds for different charities and causes, including the WWF and Earth Hour.
We work with a range of top quality local activity providers including Telluride Outside and Boot Doctors, who run fantastic bike tours and rafting experiences! It's great to be able to bring extra business to local companies giving people an extra special experience during their time in Telluride. We try to ensure guests get the most out of their time here by sending out pre-arrival information to help them plan their trip efficiently, and we offer discounts to incentivise bookings with our partner activity companies.
