#1 Telluride Ski Resort

When most people talk about Telluride, they're typically referring to this ski resort rather than the town. This massive complex boasts more than 2,000 acres of skiable terrain in the San Juan Mountains. The resort's 148 trails cater to skiers of all levels, although most slopes are best suited for experienced skiers. And during the warmer months, travelers can go mountain biking, golfing, whitewater rafting and more.

Recent visitors said that this is one of the best skiing areas in the country, citing its ample powder (more than 300 inches accummulate here annually) and less crowded atmopshere (in spring) as highlights. A few reviewers also raved about the resort's restaurants, especially Altezza At The Peaks, Alpino Vino, Allred's Restaurant and Bon Vivant.
