Telluride is a great non-budget minded resort town. The terrain is excellent and town & village are built for skiing. The thing my wife and I liked most was that we drove in on a Friday and didn't drive again until we left on Monday, everything is within walking distance and the gondola between town and the village is free. There's excellent steap challenging runs and the scenery is awsome. Lodging is expensive and so is everything else here but definitly worth a visit every once in a awhile. Thats my 2cents!
