A ski resort has to be doing a lot of things right to make SKI magazine’s shortlist as a top five destination in the annual Resort Guide. A Telluride ski vacation requires a bit more effort than visiting most other resorts; getting to the breathtaking box canyon in the San Juan Mountains can take a while. But vacationers are rewarded for their traveling efforts; Telluride is one of Colorado’s most gorgeous mountain towns. Rich in mining-era character and stocked with endless stashes to explore thanks to nonexistent crowds, Telluride is a place you’ll never want to leave.

Downtown Telluride and Mountain Village

There are two distinct parts of Telluride: Downtown and Mountain Village. Downtown Telluride still retains the feel and charm of a former mining town, it’s a snapshot of days gone by and the locals that live in Telluride work hard to keep it genuine. Mountain Village, over the ridge from downtown, is reminiscent of most contemporary resort villages—modern hotels, shops, and restaurants line the cobblestone walkways (or “breezeways” as the locals call them).

To experience the best of both worlds, you can take the complimentary 15-minute gondola ride that links downtown Telluride with Mountain Village, making the absolute coolest commute in any mountain town. Whether you opt for the charm and action of histortic downtown or the quiet atmosphere and comfortable accoutrements of Mountain Village, bouncing between both areas is easy and fun.
