Reviews for Telluride
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Was at Telluride in 1968 before it was a ski town. Been skiing it since 1996, so I've got to watch it grow up. There is no more breathtaking place to ski. It's always spectacular. Great skiing for all levels. Lift lines at 4,5, and 10 are trafficked mostly at rush hours and light otherwise. Up the mountain there are rarely lines. Usually have sufficient snow. It's a grand place. Great diversity of runs for all levels, as well as great hike-to terrain. Anyone can usually ski any part of the mountain.
There seems to be a concerted effort to turn Tride into Aspen or Vail (too bad). Catering to big money has pushed most of the locals and help out into the surrounding area...Norwood, Ridgway, and Rico. Thus, it is hard for the local business to get and keep help, so it has become cumbersome and unreliable. Used to walk in and eat at nearly everywhere with a reasonable wait...not so anymore. We're looking at reservation-only nearly everywhere in town and in Mountain Village. Reservations have to be made weeks ahead most of the time. That's a metro-area vibe - not Telluride's DNA! It's.just.sad! Since COVID, it has become one of the priciest places I've been to. C'mon, Chuck! DO BETTER!... Full Review
Can't imagine a more beautiful winter resort anywhere on earth. A must visit for skiing aficionados. ... Full Review
Don’t listen to any of the crybaby’s that post bad reviews. I’ve skied nearly 20 resorts out west, many in Colorado and telluride ranks #1. It has amazing terrain, virtually no lift lines outside of peak season, you don’t need to drive anywhere because of the great gondola system, the views are unmatched and between the town and mtn village there is plenty to do on a vacation. Only downfall of this resort is that it’s not the best in the early season in terms of snowfall. The resort tends to get more snow towards the end of January through March. So I would plan your trip during that time if your schedule allows. Just an amazing place. ... Full Review
The resort spans three peaks, one of which is almost all black or above. Access to the other 2 peaks requires riding one of three lifts, creating traffic funnels. Lift 10 was not operational on 2/11 and 2/-12 due to “mechanical” issues. Lifts 4 and 5 were intermittently down also on these weekend days.
The base and area facilities are very nice and the town has a cool vibe and many nice dining options. But the mountain operations issues prevent me from recommending this 2022/2023 skiing season. ... Full Review
They just don't get the snow needed to make this a great mountain! ... Full Review
It's too bad that there seems to be a bad organization in management why ruin a good place with unreliable snow reports lives in staff. A lot of the stuff is nice but not sure what to do. A lot of people sitting around. Towns and locals seem to be nice but unreliable once you get to the resort. Definitely is not what they said it was supposed to be.... Full Review
It's odd how the resort bottlenecks at the base which leads to longer lift lines than I'd expect for a week day. Prices are high everywhere. Staff weren't as friendly as other resorts. This was a difficult place to get to so I rate it only 3 stars since there are so many other resorts that are a better value and more expansive.... Full Review
