What to do in Telluride

The adventures and excitement in Telluride last all year. Days are full here with an average 300 days of sunshine, and for outdoor adventurers, each season offers its own unique entertainment.


Winter celebrates all things snow, and the Telluride Ski Resort provides a world-class playground with legendary terrain and Colorado’s most spectacular mountain views – Telluride has quickly risen in the ranks as a must-visit ski destination. Off the slopes, Telluride is a wonderland for many other outdoor adventures including: fat tire biking, Nordic skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, ice climbing, ice skating, snowmobiling, and sleigh rides.


Summer brings warmer weather and clear skies, perfect for exploring the pristine hiking and biking trails that start right from the valley floor. Winter’s runoff also unveils a playground for boaters, rafters and fly fisherman starting from the San Miguel River that runs right through town. Summer marks the kick-off of the Telluride festival season with such world-renowned events as Telluride Bluegrass, Telluride Film, Telluride Blues & Brews, Telluride Yoga Festival, and many more. And every Friday, the place to be is the Farmer’s Market for fruits, vegetables, pasture raised meats, baked goods, an array of delicious concessions, local crafts and much more.

Culinary & Cultural

When you are done exploring the great outdoors you will find the charming Victorian Town of Telluride and its modern European-style sister, Mountain Village, offer a vast mix of culinary flavors, posh and eclectic boutiques, and culturally diverse happenings.
Enjoy classic on-mountain dining experiences with Bon Vivant and its French Country Cuisine, or meet friends for a little après entertainment at Gorrono Ranch. Stroll down historic main street and revel in the fact that you wont find any chain stores there – window shop the latest in fashion and mountain décor, innovative recreational gear and everything in between. And don’t forget to treat yourself to a rejuviating spa treatment while you’re at it.
