Telluride is a great town--it's fashionable but not pretentious with good shopping and restaurants. The skiing is world class but not packed even during the holiday season. The people here are friendly.... Full Review
Today we learned that people who were Covid positive were teaching lessons ("At the very end of it. Probably not contagious anymore") This is appalling. Our ski instructor literally told us this. The gondola had garbage it it spilled food bags. The place is not worth the lift ticket. It is dirty everywhere. No idea if it is because 1/3 their staff is covid positive and they have no employees to clean the bathrooms, etc. DO NOT SPEND MONEY HERE. IT IS GARBAGE and STRESSFUL experience with extremely rude staff who are mostly high school kids. There were no adults to help us.... Full Review
Beautiful place to ski with short lines due to it's remote location. Prices are too high for the overall experience. Seems to have become more of a place for the ultra wealthy over the years. There are just better places to ski with more terrain, nicer folks and better snow for the price.... Full Review
While there's maybe a few days of skiing different runs for the green circles and blue squares the expert terrain is where I ski. There may be a lot of actual runs on each lift pod, the variations possible when linking terrain routes together offer many options to a creative eye. The local core skiers and boarders often forsake the ski area and take the gates into the tremendous sidecountry.
While they're shredding out of bounds, fewer choose to hit the many inbounds lines that go untracked for days after the storm. ... Full Review
first time here and was really impressed that there is truly something for everyone here. An incredible experience all around and an unbeatable apre ski variety. Live music scattered around the mountain at various heights was the perfect way to take breaks down these long runs. Would highly recommend for anyone ... Full Review
The most we waited in line was 5 MIN all week! With usually only 4 or 5 groups ahead of you - this was during Christmas! The terrain was extremely varied - we had beginners and experts in our group - and everyone had tons to ski. The staff were genuinely warm and very unpretentious, as was the town. Some of the most spectacular scenery I have seen. Definitely making this a regular trip!... Full Review
Absolutely my favorite mountain in North America. My winter happy place.... Full Review
