Telluride

Resort Description

At Telluride, every skier can find comfort in pushing their personal boundaries because untracked and undiscovered terrain is endless. Telluride is a place where skiers reject the masses, challenge the status quo and leave their limits in the dust. When night falls, a colorful cast of characters rub shoulders in the watering holes of historic Telluride and Mountain Village. Dining, nightlife and late-night haunts are all within walking distance. At last call, a free pedestrian gondola awaits to deliver night owls back to their lodging in preparation for another day in this modern frontier.
