Telluride, Colorado

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.

No matter where you stay in Telluride, the entire area is accessible, with or without a car. One of the most pedestrian-friendly regions in the US, the town of Telluride and Mountain Village are connected by a free pedestrian gondola. Once visitors arrive, they can park the car (or opt out of one altogether) and enjoy dining, lodging, skiing, and other activities on foot. Telluride’s backcountry ski terrain includes hike-to options on Bald Mountain, the Gold Hill Chutes, and Black Iron Bowl. From many backcountry locations, it’s possible to glimpse the historic mining town of Alta far below the slopes. The terrain is accessible by hiking from chairlift serviced areas of the resort, and does require backcountry skiing safety knowledge. Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are also offered, both on self-serviced trails (nordic passes required) or with tour guides in a group environment.

In summer, Telluride is an outdoors person’s paradise, and in winter, there’s much to do in addition to skiing and riding. Off the slopes, the town of Telluride offers dining ranging from family-friendly eateries to fine dining establishments, without a chain brand in sight. Wherever visitors walk in town, they’re treated by the sight of historic, Victorian-era homes and shops, all from Telluride’s mining boom days.
