Whether it’s an epic powder day or bluebird, sunny, slush fest on Telluride Mountain, nothing should get in the way of another run. Hunger and thirst may beg for attention, but they’re trivial sensations compared to the bottomless turns on Kant-Mak-M or the slushy bump lines on lower Spiral Stairs. But, when those two cups of coffee decide to play catch up, things can get a little interesting.
Luckily, Telluride’s on-mountain amenities are plentiful, with multiple places to take a mandatory pit stop. And when it comes time to achieve that necessary relief, nothing beats the Giuseppe’s bathrooms.
In these bathrooms (the best not just on the resort, but perhaps in the San Juans) aromas of cinnamon and vanilla greet the nostrils, and impeccably clean stalls and pristine views of Wasatch Face add a comfort factor not traditionally found at on-mountain latrines. And, although it may seem a bit silly to rave about bathrooms, the fact of the matter is that when you gotta go, you gotta go. So, you might as well do it in luxury; here, you’ll feel like a king (or queen) taking a bathroom break at 12,000ft.
