    About Telluride, Co

    Telluride, located in southwestern Colorado, is actually two locations in one: the town of Telluride and the town of Mountain Village. Skiers and other winter outdoor enthusiasts will want to enjoy both. Telluride Ski Resort is known for its excellent backcountry skiing, powder, and tree-skiing, but that doesn't mean it leaves beginners and intermediate skiers and riders behind: a full 60% of the mountain is dedicated to green and blue runs. Skiers will find long cruisers and a large and uncrowded beginner area. Even the famed ‘See Forever’ Trail (accessed from the top of Lift 14) is beginner-friendly; skiers and riders can cruise its length from the breathtaking views at the top all the way to the base.
