Huffington Post: A Ski Town for Everyone

Best for Year-Round Mountain Fans: Telluride, CO

Cupped in a cul-de-sac of stunning San Juan Mountain peaks, Telluride has the rare advantage of being a real town first and ski resort second. It does both equally well. In winter, skiers have more than 2,000 acres of terrain to keep them busy with everything from steep faces to meandering greens. After a big dump you can start off with a ride up the Oak Street Lift for double black-diamond powder runs right into town or keep it mellow with intermediate turns off the Polar Queen Express. The Mountain Film Festival comes to town in May and bands like The Del McCoury Band, Bela Fleck and Nickel Creek will perform at this year’s Telluride Bluegrass Festival in June. When the snow melts hike about five miles round trip to Blue Lake or take a leisurely stroll around Mountain Village, accessible by a free gondola.
