Tucked away in a box canyon, Telluride is an eclectic mix of historic mining town and modern ski resort. Telluride (AKA “To hell we ride”) has a colourful history, home to the very first bank Butch Cassidy robbed. Fast forward to 2017 and you’ll find a buzzing town and a tastefully designed Mountain Village connected by a free gondola.
This resort offers an unmatched mountain experience for all levels of skiers/snowboarders thanks to some of the most spectacular terrain and scenery in North America. Advanced skiers will be especially impressed by the nerve-wracking chutes and steep gladed runs on offer.
When you arrive at Telluride, everything is accessible by foot, free shuttle or gondola – so say goodbye to your rental car and hello to your new mountain playground.

Telluride is separated into 2 areas, the Mountain Village and town. There is a free gondola that runs from Mountain Village down to town that takes 13 minutes and operates until midnight. We generally recommend staying in the Mountain Village and using the gondola at night to access the bars, restaurants and shops in town. The accommodation in Mountain Village is of a high standard, ranging from 5-star luxury hotels to ski-/ski-out self-catered apartments.
