If you're a diehard skier or snowboarder and don't want the business of most Colorado resorts then head to Telluride! Incredible terrain and unbelievable powder days! Least crowded resort I've been to in Colorado and the town has a great vibe!... More

I learned to ski on the east coast. I grew my passion for skiing in the rockies, and specifically Telluride. Rising above a quirky and historic old mining town, Telluride resort has something for everyone. From gentle beginner slopes to long, picturesque intermediate run, to expert terrain through the glades, bumps, and trees, T-Ride boasts great... More

Once you see the canyon Telluride is in you will realize why people travel from everywhere to get here. Everything about the place is quaint, except the terrain. Lots of steeps but also a lot of fun trails for the not so advanced. If you want the extreme experience you can find it very easily and the area is very well avy controlled. Lots of hiking... More

Telluride was an absolutely astonishing experience. The lift lines here are very short because of how secluded the resort is and that kept waiting in lines to a minimum. The park has terrain ranging from gentle slopes to double blacks and terrain parks that were absolutely incredible. The town of telluride was also a beautiful place to done and... More

Telluride is a gem in Colorado. What essentially is two mountains (cross gondola is sweet) makes for a serious amount of terrain to explore. The town(s) are super cool with one leaning towards resort while the other side has a more cowboy feel.

This is some of the gnarliest terrain in the country, though I wish it would snow a lot more here. We are in a hole where all the snow goes right around. Not too many people skiing the hard stuff either.
