I went to Telluride Jan 15-22, 2007. It was a little difficult to get to (the air trip from Ft. Lauderdale to Dallas to Montrose and bus to Telluride took 13 hours), however it is worth it. I'm an advanced beginner and there was lots of skiing available to beginning and intermediate skiiers. There were NO lift lines and bright sunny cold days. The history, the architecture, the mountains and town are well worth the trip. The restaurants I went to had very good food and my lodging was very comfortable.
