What to do
No matter which season you visit, Telluride is the perfect playground for your family.
In winter, you can explore 2000 skiable acres of fresh powdery snow at Telluride Ski Resort. The Rocky Mountain playground caters to all levels of ability with 16% beginner runs, 30% intermediate, 21% advanced and 34% expert. The resort also has Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding and ice-skating for those days when you don’t feel like shredding.
In summer the town transforms into a biking, hiking and watersports paradise. Telluride’s gondola carries mountain bikers up the slopes to tackle trails along old mining roads and basins high above box canyon. If you’re new to mountain biking you can start on less challenging trails throughout the valley and to the west built on former railway tracks. Or try an easy relaxing trail through the meadows.
Summer guests can also try disc golf, horse riding, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking and rafting.
Packed with boutique shops, art galleries and cafes, Telluride’s main street is a great place to spend a few hours. It also offers stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. The town is pedestrian-friendly and there is no need to take a shuttle or rent a car, everything is within walking distance or is accessible by Telluride’s complimentary gondola, which travels up and over the mountain.
