Telluride has it all and the scenery makes the rest of the beautiful State of Colorado envious. The beginner runs are long, easy and open and the double black diamonds make you wonder if dropping in is really a good idea (some of the most challenging anywhere). The town is a equally cool, and isn't expensive compared with Vail and Aspen, not to mention NY and LA. Travel to Telluride is an issue - the flight to Montrose is OK, but then there's the long ride in a shuttle, and for some reason, there aren't many flight options to the Telluride town airport as there used to be. If they could fix that, they'd really have something special.
