Unsurpassed views, small town charm, great restaurants and friendly people. I've been skiing for 23 years and have skiied most of Colorado, Utah and New Mexico as well as Lake Louise in Canada. I came to Telluride 7 years ago and have not been to another ski resort since...don't want to. In my opinion, NOTHING compares to the overall experience in Telluride. I WILL have a condo here someday...even if it takes me until the age of 90!!!
