Telluride Ski Resorts & Holidays


South-West Colorado's best kept secret offers exquisite terrain amidst the San Juan Mountains. Telluride's base camp is split into two sections. Nestled on the canyon floor is the laid-back and funky Old Town which oozes classic Victorian chic - even Tom Cruise has a home here! Overlooking the valley is the more modern Mountain Village, which is at the base of the ski-trails. The two are linked by a unique late-running gondola system. Telluride is a really special resort where memories are made.

Beginners (4 out of 5)

There's plenty for the beginner here in Telluride. The ski school is top-notch, the instructors friendly and the Sunshine 10 chair a green-run paradise.

Intermediates (4 out of 5)

There's plenty of blue and blue-black action to be had all over the hill and don't miss the open glades off Giuseppes.

Advanced (5 out of 5)

Until recently Telluride was a black-diamond mountain only, so there is more than enough challenging technical skiing here, perfect for the advanced skier, there is also heli-skiing.

Snowboarding (4 out of 5)

Telluride offers world-class riding all over the resort, with plenty of natural halfpipes, hits and drops. A highlight is the Air Garden halfpipe and Terrain Park, which is fully-stocked with ramps, rails, spines and gaps.
