You’ll have access to more than 200 square miles of some of the best skiable terrain in the country with vertical drops as high as 3,000 feet. If your plans take you to the slopes in Aspen, Vail or Beaver Creek, Helitrax offers chartered flights to Telluride that will have you back before happy hour so you can experience the après ski scene, too.

Check in here: Take a load off at the ski-in/ski-out Hotel Madeline Telluride in Mountain Village with its luxe rooms, relaxing spa and gourmet restaurant. If you’re looking to curl up by the fire, book one of the 11 suites or 12 condos for a real Rocky Mountain stay.

National Geographic Features Telluride in Top 25 Ski Towns in the World

National Geographic Article - Telluride Affiliates BlogBest For: Big-lunged skiers and boarders with a taste for fine wine and the mountain high life

Remote and unrelentingly beautiful, Telluride may be the most picturesque ski town in North America, a Victorian-era silver-mining hamlet set deep in a box canyon in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. The steep runs of Telluride Ski Resort spill right into the edge of the town’s National Historic District, where a gondola whisks skiers back up into the area’s almost 4,000 vertical feet of absurdly scenic skiing. Only 12 blocks long and with no stoplights, neon signs, or billboards, this charming town of 2,325 people combines fine wine lists and funky bars with a spirited culture of diehard mountain lovers. The town sits at a gasping 8,793 feet above sea level, and lifts reach to over 12,500 feet, so come prepared to acclimatize.

Top 5 Ski Resorts by Forbes!

Forbes magazine has named the town of Telluride as one of the top 5 ski resorts!

Here’s what they had to say

If you’ve been to Telluride, you understand why it’s on this list.  Seeing this town’s main street framed against one of the more magnificent box canyons in the world, the spire of its old courthouse saluting a battalion of serrated San Juan peaks, pays for the plane ticket.  As for that plane ride, Telluride has a reputation for being hard to reach.  It’s a tag that gets Dave Riley, the CEO of the resort, bristling.  “It’s simply not true,” he says.  “It’s easier to get in here than a lot of other Colorado resorts, and the drive is better.”
