The Observatory at Alta Lakes

The Observatory is a private and most certainly unique backcountry cabin located 13 miles from Telluride, Colorado. The Observatory is nestled underneath the 13,000-foot Palmyra and Silver Peaks of the San Juan Mountains and is adjacent to the Telluride ski area. It is one of only a few homes in the United States at 11,000+ feet. Come experience what the locals have known for years!
