Telluride was a big dissappointment to my family. We had been told that Telluride was a great place to go. No lift lines, affordable, and great runs. Well let me start out by saying that lift lines DO exist at Telluride. The base was a chaotic place! Prices for lodging were overpriced. Lift tickets are $85! The mountain is not worth $85 a day. This isn't Deer Valley! The runs are of no comparison to Whistler, Alta, or Park City. And most of all the ski school is awful! They were UNSAFE, unprofessional, and lack communication between parents and instructors. Kids were lost to say the very least. If sending your kids to ski school is an important factor in your ski vacation, then don't go to Telluride.
