About the Mountain


Tucked in a narrow valley and surrounded by rugged, imposing peaks, Telluride is widely considered one of the best ski resorts in North America. With mountain vistas that leave even Aspenites in awe, it’s hard to overstate the beauty of the San Juans, especially from Main Street on the valley floor. It’s one reason people who visit Telluride so often return, the others being epic ski conditions, varied terrain, and its tight-knit Western-bohemian community.

“I have discovered that even the mediocre can have adventures and even the fearful can achieve.”

- Edmund Hillary

With the town of Telluride stretching only 8 blocks, everything is within walking distance. But in case you don’t feel like a stroll, there’s a free shuttle and even a free gondola up to Mountain Village, which is known to have stunning views along the 13-minutes journey. If you’re an expert skier, be sure to look into Telluride’s heli-skiing. If you’re an artist, check out the Telluride Fire Festival, sure to warm up your body and creative mind.
