Kate Stokes

Director of Operations


Hailing from Michigan, Kate moved west as soon as she held her degree. After leading trips with Backroads and on the cusp of the Great Recession, her brother suggested: “move to Telluride for the ski season, it’s a good way to kill some time.” Over a decade later, she remains.

Kate joined Alpine Lodging in 2012 and holds BAs in Hospitality Management and French. Formerly the General Manager of the Hotel Columbia, she brings poise and polish to her role as Director of Operations.

In her spare time, Kate can be found on singletrack mountain bike trails, off-piste ski runs, volunteering with the Rico Trails Alliance and Telluride Historical Museum or booking her next international trip.
