Telluride Ski & Golf Resort

A charming former mining town, Telluride is a place of spectacular scenery and often daunting terrain. All this comes without lift lines, since Telluride's southwestern Colorado location places it far from any major city. As with several of the big western US resorts, this is a tale of two bases - the original historic town of Telluride and the modern, slopeside mountain village. The resort's network of a dozen lifts includes two high speed quads and one high-speed, three-stage gondola transportation system with two legs for mountain access. Free, guided mountain tours are available for intermediates and experts.Off the slopes, Telluride boasts over 40 restaurants and bars, with everything from burger joints and Mexican food to top-of-the line bistros and classic American, Italian, and French cuisine.

Pros: AMAZING Mountain, Great town, Breath-taking scenery, Fantastic snow

Cons: Remote and hard to get to

I skied at Telluride in 2006 and since then I have been dying to go back. It the most perfect skiing location I can imagine. I skied Telluride the last week it was open in the sping, and the snow was still light and ideal. The runs are long, steep, picturesque and fun. I can't say enough good things about that mountain. Skiing down the face, looking down on the town and across the valley at the opposite mountains is absolutely surreal.


The town is also really cool. An old mining town, it retained its tough West character. Great bars and restaurants line the main street, all minaturized by the looming rugged mountains that surround little Telluride. It is really a place that has to be visited--unlike any other.


Pros: terrain

Cons: flights into town

Lived here for 3+ seasons...one of the greatest experiences of my life.  3, 100+ day seasons and 5-6 rounds of golf each summer.  Doesn't get better.  Bring a chick and some $ cause you ain't making any here. 


Pros: Challenge and variety of terrain, views of the San Juans

Cons: none

No other resort in CO can beat the terrain and scenery at Telluride in my opinion.  I have skied Vail, A-basin, Breck, Steamboat, Copper & Loveland.  Of all these Telluride by far has the steepest and most challenging terrain for experts and advanced skier.  However, there is also plenty of terrain for intermediates and beginners including some of the longest green runs I have seen anywhere.  It can work work well for skier groups of different levels.
The mountains is very well organized and never crowded.  We were there for a whole week in early Feb and the only time we waited in line is when a lift was stopped.  Beacuse it is isolated from large population centers, not a daytrip away from any big city, there are no daytrip or weekend skier.
The scenery beats any resorts I have skied in CA, CO and UT.  The historic town is beautiful and quaint with many good restaurants; a bit pricey but worth it.


Pros: terrain

Cons: nadda really

great terrain, great bumps, cliffs and alright steeps.  short vertical.....i think......

other than that, rock on
