Best Things To Do in Telluride

The main reason for visiting Telluride is obvious: the world-class ski slopes. This town is dominated by the Telluride Ski Resort, which encompasses a total of 1,700 skiable acres and sees an unusual pairing of 300 inches of snow and 300 days of sunshine. But should you visit in the warmer months, you can enjoy the San Juan Mountains from one of region's photogenic hiking trails, like Bear Creek Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. And if you want to get to know Telluride a bit better, spend an afternoon in Town Park, learn about the area at the Telluride Historical Museum or take in a show at the Historic Sheridan Opera House
