Telluride Ski Mountain has been named Condé Nast Traveler’s #1 Ski Resort among U.S. and Canadian Resorts
From the November 2016 Condé Nast Traveler:
Telluride rises above the rest with its no-nonsense attitude, a healthy mix of ski bums and artists, gorgeous location (170 inches of snow and 240 days of sunshine every year), and sublime winter sports. Easiest access is a 62-minute drive from Montrose Airport (MTJ) with daily service from Denver, Chicago, Dallas, and Houston. Readers’ favorite places to stay? The Fairmont Heritage Place, Franz Klammer Lodge, the Inn at Lost Creek, Mountain Lodge, and The Peaks Resort and Spa. STATS: One-day lift tickets average $86–$129. There are 127 trails, Galloping Goose being the longest at 4.6 miles, and 18 lifts and gondolas. Into heli-skiing? Telluride Helitrax can take you to more than 200 square miles of high alpine skiing (flying their helicopters from The Peaks Resort and Spa). Or, grab the kids and shake things up with snowbiking.
