Happy Thanksgiving!

Telluride Affiliates Blog

Thanksgiving week started with lots of fresh snow on the ground and the Ski Company reporting 75 inches of snow YTD for the season and a 41 inch base. With all the new snow we’re on track for one of the best opening days in quite some time and the mountain opens tomorrow, Nov. 27th, with Donation Day, a fundraiser for the Telluride Ski & Snowboard Club. All tickets are $25 and all proceeds go to the Club’s scholarship fund.

The skiing should be great, so come support the kids and see why Conde Nast Traveler readers once again ranked Telluride the #1 Ski Resort in North America!

We hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving holiday wherever you are and look forward to seeing you when you are in town. As always, please feel free to stop by the office or contact us online or at 970-728-0213.

Telluride Named #1 Ski Area in the US & Canada


Condé Nast Traveler has named Telluride the #1 Ski area in all of US and Canada. 

In their annual Readers’ Choice Survey, they asked 20,000 Condé Nast Traveler skiiers to vote on the best ski areas in North America—and they came up with an impressive list of must-visit mountain towns. Telluride received a Readers’ Choice Rating  of 94.1%.

Here’s what they had to say:

Our readers consider Telluride “the most beautiful mountain town in Colorado with views reminiscent of the Alps,” rocketing it to the number one spot in our poll. Readers love the no-line lifts, the steep terrain, and the overall laid-back vibe, adding it’s “absolutely the world’s greatest ski area when it comes to variety of difficulty.” What’s more, Telluride is a “fun town to explore,” “a little slice of heaven in a gorgeous box canyon.”
