And if you’re visiting us next summer.
Fear not, Telluride has you covered
A destination doesn’t receive repeat “Winter Paradise” designation without accommodating a variety of outdoor recreational activities and there’s plenty to unpack beyond Telluride Ski Resort, the 2,000-acre area often described as a skier and snowboarder utopia by those in the know. The variety of ways to explore this fabled open country leaves you spoilt for choice...
Something for everyone
Cross-country skiers and snowshoers can take advantage of the groomed Nordic tracks while snowmobilers and fat tire biking enthusiasts have extensive trail networks available to them. In true western fashion, you can also settle in under a blanket on a sleigh behind a team of Belgian draft horses or saddle up for the day yourself. Whatever outside activity you wish to choose, local outfitters are always available to take you, your friends and family out for an adventure you’ll never forget.
Why visit Telluride? We’ll Tell-u-why
If you’re looking for unpaved hills this winter, check out Telluride. Basking in open space, surrounded by 14,000-foot peaks, this alpine destination offers escape down every trail. With nonstop flights on United from SFO to Montrose in about two hours (or one-stop into the Telluride airport just minutes from the slopes), disappearing into winter bliss has never been easier. Take off in the morning and you’ll arrive in town just in time for dinner, the perfect setting to launch your holiday.

About this resort
There’s plenty going on inside too, especially in winter. Several restaurants reopen each December, including Alpino Vino, at 11,966-feet the highest elevation eatery in North America. Alpino Vino is joined by Bon Vivant, Giuseppe’s, High Camp Warming Hut, and other seasonal haunts. Like Telluride Ski Resort itself, diverse terrain that satisfies chute chasers to young beginners, the area’s culinary scene offers a spectrum of options from a world-renowned chop house to brewpubs, bistros, and everything in between. Whether descending the gondola into town after a day on the slopes or finishing up dinner, après spots welcome you all over town.
Conde Nast readers rate Telluride the #1 Ski Resort in North America for many reasons, including the balanced terrain across every face, outstanding ski and snowboard school, and sublime location. With so much snow play at hand and under boot, getting into the winter spirit is as quick as a nonstop United flight from SFO to Montrose, or one-stop into the Telluride Airport.
