Things to Do
The adventures and excitement in Telluride last all year. The legendary powder of winter transforms the Telluride region into a verdant playground come summer. After the last of the golden leaves fall to the ground in October, we are busy once again getting ready for opening day at the Telluride Ski Resort. This is the cycle of life here in Telluride, and we invite you to join us for any season.
From Sunrise to Sunset
Days are full here, and for outdoor adventurers, each season offers its own unique entertainment. Winter celebrates all things snow, and Telluride Ski Resort provides a world-class playground in its own right. With 2,000-plus skiable acres, featuring the new Revelation Bowl that opened for the 08/09 season, Telluride's powder and terrain are unmatched in North America.
Summer brings warmer weather and clear skies, perfect for exploring the pristine hiking and biking trails that start right from the valley floor. Winter’s runoff also unveils a playground for boaters, rafters and fly fishers starting from the San Miguel River that runs right through town.
Beyond recreation, Telluride also takes comestibles seriously. Attracted by the natural beauty, world-class skiing and cultural diversity, Telluride and Mountain Village have drawn vast culinary talents. As a result, you’ll find a wonderful selection of digestible delights during your stay. Locals and returning guests all have their favorites—we invite you to discover yours.
Telluride is also home to legendary historic saloons and modern lounges. With convenient gondola access between Telluride and Mountain Village, enjoying a night out on the town is a must.
