Telluride Ski Resort
Telluride is an off-the-beaten-path ski town that provides a window into the "Old West" and Colorado’s mining history. Telluride's majestic San Juan Mountains set the stage for an inspiring—and unique—Colorado ski vacation. For those looking for an unforgettable Rocky Mountain experience, the Town of Telluride and the resort provide the ultimate backdrop for a winter getaway.
Established in 1887 with the buzz of eager miners looking to claim their fortune, Telluride's history is a colorful as the Victorian homes that saturate its town. Many would argue that Telluride is named after the nonmetallic element, tellurium. Tellurium can be found in the surrounding vicinity and is associated with rich mineral deposits often bundled with gold and silver. On the other hand, historians often say that would-be-miners coined the name from yelling, “To-Hell-You-Ride".
An unreal combination of idyllic scenery, heart-thumping steeps, famed groomed terrain and beginner slopes make the Telluride the "the perfect ski area.” Whether you are a first time skier or just signed your first ski film contract, a week, month, or lifetime exploring the terrain at the Telluride Ski Resort is a bucket list destination.
