Surrounded by a curtain of stunning mountains and blanketed in green forest, Telluride isn’t nearly as famous as its cousin Aspen. Still, the slopes here are just as steep and challenging, and you’re sure to find high fashion winter wear here. Ralph Lauren’s ranch is nearby, after all. In warmer months, heart-pumping ski runs become mountain biking and hiking trails that reward the brave with beautiful peak and valley views.
Telluride has something Aspen doesn’t: a rich wild west mining history that’s still alive and kicking today. Gold and silver pulled from these mountains may provide the raw materials for all the glitz visitors sport, but the rough-and-tumble people who dug it out have given the area a grittier side that’s just as fun to explore. Get to know all the facets of this marvelous place with our Telluride vacation rentals.
Dig deep into Telluride’s past with a visit to the Telluride Historical Museum. You’ll see how the pioneers, cowboys, and miners here eked out a living—then celebrated by hitting the town after a long day on the slopes (even if they weren’t actually skiing them).
These days, every summer weekend is celebrated with a festival of some kind, from wine to bluegrass to film. Bring your pup to pet-friendly Ballard House 207A by RedAwning to rub tails with local mutts while enjoying some tunes, or take your favorite vintage back to your kitchen at Silver Star Telluride Condominiums to pair with a signature dish cooked in your own private kitchen.
