Excerpt from Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Ski Resorts in U.S. and Canada

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.

Where 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 148 trails, Galloping Goose being the longest at 4.6 miles, and 19 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.
