    Wonderful town in southwestern Colorado with some of the best skiing in North America. All season outdoor sports, but especially alpine skiing. Enjoy!

    This former mining town lies in a box canyon, surrounded on three sides by 14,000-foot peaks, so few places can rival the natural beauty, or the solitude (population: 2,500; stoplights: 0). A free, scenic gondola links Telluride to the neighboring Mountain Village, and Telluride Ski Resort itself counts 127 trails, three terrain parks, and an average snowfall of 309 inches. The local dining scene is equally impressive: 221 South Oak serves Rocky Mountain elk chop and Colorado lamb shank, and Rustico Ristorante stocks 1,000-plus Italian wines. If you’re game to brush up on more than skiing skills, consider remote photo tours from Telluride Outside, ice climbing with the San Juan Outdoor School, or classes at the Ah Haa School for the Arts.

    Epic mountain town. The steep mountain sides highlight this gem of a town. Skiing and mountain biking are intense. Hollywood and high rollers have started to find this town but it still retains the charm and character.

    Great town with terrific hiking opportunities. A free gondola ride takes you from place to place.

    We lived in a ski resort town and been to several, aside from Jackson Hole this was the worst. Tons of rich people, half wearing fur coats and overpriced food with long waits. My leg is still sore from being broken this summer but apparently the ski runs are great so at least one redeeming quality. Breckenridge kicks Telluride's ass!

    We just got back from a road trip to Telluride-a fantastic mountain town. The summer activities rival winter-mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing to name a few. We enjoyed the cool weather and mountain vibe.

    Telluride is my favorite spot that I've had the opportunity of skiing at. The town is the definition of a "ski town" and complete 180 from places like Beaver Creek and Aspen. This is truly a gem in SW Colorado with some challenging runs.

    Telluride is a fabulous ski town and lots of fun to visit. The scene is very mellow, but there are certainly some glamourous spots to be found. The skiing is the real reason to visit and runs like Coon Skin will make bump-lovers like me lifelong fans of this fantastic ski spot.

    Telluride is one of my favorites. Never boring, always different and not too uptight. Just be sure to miss MUD SEASON :)

    A former mining town brought back to life with the addition of a world class ski mountain and all that comes with that. The skiing has something for all levels but without the crowds that you find on the front range, plenty of hiking and mountain biking in the summer. A great music festival line-up in the summer and fall Telluride Bluegrass and Brews and Blues bring fabulous acts and festivarians from all over and can book up a year in advance. Great restaurants, nice shopping yet even with the influx of tourists still feels like a real town.

    Beautiful scenery, but not much to do if you don't ski!

Description

The historic mining town is separated from the rest of Colorado, geographically and otherwise. In the southwestern corner closer to Four Corners than Denver, Telluride is more Wild West than Winter Park. In the 1800s, Butch Cassidy robbed its bank and blood was shed over labor disputes. In the 1970s, a new ski resort overtook mines as the largest employer, and internationally recognized film and bluegrass festivals soon followed. These days, Telluride has begrudgingly accepted its resort-town status, but townsfolk and visitors alike would rather go geocaching or mountain biking than wear Gucci or Miu Miu, and skiing is still about going down a mountain, fast.
