Telluride is where Butch Cassidy met the infamous Hole in the Wall gang somewhere around the 1870s. Telluride has naturally segregated terrain for all levels of ability. There's plenty of challenge, including the infamous Plunge into town. An environmentally sensitive gondola transportation system brings you from the town to the mountain. Three high-speed detachable quad lifts were added at Telluride last season. Lodging on site includes the Bear Creek Lodge condos and local area lodging, available within walking distance of lifts #7 & #8 which rise from town to the centre of the intermediate area. Lodging is also available at Mtn. Village Resort or in Telluride town.

Visitor Reviews of Telluride

Steve Curtiss from United States writes:

Telluride - First visit west in several years. Have to say impressed with the variety of terrain and great views. They are a tad proud of their food but "pricey" is usually expected at ski areas. You can find bargains and even at the prices the portions are usually more than filling. From the greens to the blacks and through the trees the skiing is marvelous and a week is difficult to get it all in.
We stayed at the Aspen Street Inn, a quaint and convenient bed & breakfast which is minutes from the main gondola. Good people, food and very comfortable.
Good restaurants are also minutes away plus a fantastic gallery of local art and unique photography is just around the corner. Take a few minutes in Telluride and check out Kamruz Gallery on Colorado St. You'll find something you like that isn't the normal tourist attraction.
Telluride is a skier's resort and a great vacation. Get off the I-70 track and make tracks at Telluride.
