Once dubbed “To-Hell-You-Ride” from its mining town days, the town of Telluride was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964.

Telluride Ski Resort boasts incredible views of the San Juan Mountains and is home to more than 2,000 acres of lift-accessible terrain. Telluride’s 4,425 feet of vertical is accessed via 19 lifts and 148 runs. With a lift-served elevation of 12,515 feet and a maximum elevation of 13,150 feet, the mountain has no trouble holding onto its snow - more than 280 inches of average snowfall. Telluride’s terrain ranges from beginner to intermediate, with four hike-to terrain areas for advanced and expert skiers. The ski area offers multiple terrain parks for all skill levels as well as 10 kilometers of Nordic skiing.

After the lifts close, head to town and enjoy the après spoils that make this town so unique. From summer bluegrass, beer and film festivals to world-class restaurants and lodging options, the party seems to never end. Summer activities include Jeep tours, golf, fly fishing, mountain biking and ropes courses.
