Telluride, Colorado

Telluride is an old Victorian mining town set in a spectacular box canyon walled by 4000m plus peaks: the location is breathtaking! Telluride Ski Resort offers an unmatched mountain experience for all levels of skiers and snowboarders thanks to some of the most spectacular terrain and scenery in North America.

From refined groomed runs to challenging moguls, there truly is something for everyone. Even beginners and intermediate skiers can ride to the highest peaks and enjoy terrain and views typically reserved for the experts. Nearly 60% of all terrain is dedicated to beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. For the more advanced there are four hike-to terrain areas containing advanced, expert and extreme terrain.

Getting around Telluride is easy with a free gondola linking the town and mid-mountain village until late every day. Staying in the town has benefits because it’s a stone’s throw from restaurants and nightlife, whereas the modern mountain village is often preferred by families for its convenient access to the beginner slopes and kids’ facilities. Both the town and the mountain village have ski-in ski-out accommodations.

Telluride is a small town with a big personality that offers an escape from the real world and the pressures of everyday life. The town itself is just 8 blocks and there are no stop signs or traffic lights. The town is designated as a National Historic District with characteristic Victorian architecture and historic buildings along Main Street. Telluride is also home to a vast array of world class restaurants and shops. Nearby is the newer resort community of Mountain Village.

There are plenty of activities to do in Telluride other than skiing or snowboarding. Activities in the area include sleigh ride dinners, ice climbing, snow mobiling, winter fly fishing, and horse riding.
