Overview of Telluride Ski Resort

When you take a Telluride ski holiday you’ll find you’re in one of the world’s most attractive destinations. The old town is located away from most other ski resorts in Colorado, in an area of great scenic beauty that seems more like the Alps than the Rockies to those people who have visited other Colorado resorts to the north and been somewhat under-whelmed by the mountainscape. On top of this the old town itself has bags of ‘cowboy town’ character with its Victorian-era brick buildings.
Telluride’s natural appeal attracted free spirits during the 1960s and 70s who followed on from the original Ute Indians who lived in the area and then gold miners. In more recent years it has shot to national and international attention with growing numbers of tourists arriving and also Hollywood celebrities buying holiday homes here.

This process has been smoothed by on-going improvements on the mountain, with modern lifts installed, new terrain opened and the development of a slopeside mountain village. Most innovative of all however is a gondola lift which links the old town to the mountain village and runs to midnight each day meaning that, for a change, it doesn’t really matter if you stay in the town or by the slopes as you can access the ski runs and the nightlife equally from either base.
