Deep powder. Endless runs. No lift lines. Blissful solitude. But it’s the views that will really take your breath away. There are lots of places with snow. But there are no places quite like Telluride, Colorado.Located in southwest Colorado’s stunning San Juan Mountains, Telluride is rapidly becoming a favoured haunt for Australian and New Zealand snow lovers.
Tucked into a box canyon at an altitude of 8,750 feet, Telluride is surrounded on three sides by 14,000-foot peaks. Regularly voted ‘the prettiest ski resort in the world’, this laid-back mountain town is a must-visit for people who love to ski, without the crowds. US Condé Nast readers ranked Telluride the #1 Ski Resort in North America.
With 18 lifts and 127 runs, Telluride’s slopes offer an impressive array of terrain for all abilities. There is also a large amount of backcountry, as well as hike-to access and heli-skiing for the more adventurous. Snowmobiling, ice climbing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice skating and sledding are also popular activities.
