Plan Your Trip
Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ) is the closest commercial airport to Telluride, positioned about a 1.5-hour drive away. Exploring alternative flight paths, skiers might consider flying into Durango-La Plata County Airport (DRO), roughly a 2.5 to 3-hour drive from the resort, or Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT), although it entails a scenic 2.5 to 3-hour drive to reach Telluride.
TEX (Telluride Regional Airport) is an option for those looking for convenience, given its proximity to Telluride. However, it's primarily serviced by smaller aircraft and limited commercial flights, so travelers might find fewer flight choices compared to larger airports like Montrose (MTJ) or Durango (DRO). Depending on flight availability and preferences, some travelers opt for TEX for its closeness to Telluride, but larger airports may offer more diverse flight options despite requiring a slightly longer drive to the resort.
