About Telluride, Colorado
The over a century-old Town of Telluride is filled with colorful legends and Rocky Mountain spirit. Just six blocks wide and twelve blocks long, the National Historic District is a window into the town’s illustrious past with its colorful Victorian homes, clapboard storefronts and boutiques.
Telluride’s World-Class Ski Resort is a grandiose backdrop to the historic town, offering a genuine mountain experience for all levels of skiers thanks to a mix of quality terrain on 2,000+ ski-able acres. Even beginners and intermediate skiers can ride to the highest peaks and enjoy terrain and views typically reserved for the experts. And forget crowds: the trails are never packed, and there is rarely a lift line.
But don’t worry, skiing isn’t the only thing Telluride has going for it. The charming Victorian Town of Telluride and its modern European-style sister, Mountain Village, offer a vast mix of culinary flavors, posh and eclectic boutiques, and culturally diverse happenings. And there’s plenty for the kids too – the Telluride community is extremely family focused. Telluride’s education system is nationally recognized as exemplary, with camps and extra curriculars from rock climbing and river rafting to theater and dance.
Enjoy classic on-mountain dining experiences with Bon Vivant and its French Country Cuisine, or meet friends for a little après entertainment at Gorrono Ranch. Stroll down historic main street and revel in the fact that you wont find any chain stores there – window shop the latest in fashion and mountain décor, innovative recreational gear and everything in between. And don’t forget to treat yourself to a rejuvenating spa treatment while you’re at it.
