Telluride is known for being one of the top ski destinations in the country thanks to its prime location on the mountain near the Telluride Ski Resort. While most lodging is located within a few blocks of the ski area and lifts, there are plenty of rentals with skiing and snowboarding directly outside of the front door.
Ski-in/ski-out lodging in downtown Telluride is located near the base of the Coonskin Lift (#7) or at the Gondola and Oak Street Lift (#8). Several runs, including intermediate (blue) and expert (black), end in town.
Mountain Village also has many ski-in/ski-out properties with unreal views of the San Juan Mountains. Ski-in/ski-out properties in Mountain Village can be found along the Sunshine Express (lift #10), Meadows (lift #1) and the Village Express (#4). Condos in the Mountain Village Core are also close to the ski school. The terrain in Mountain Village ranges from beginner and advanced beginner (green) to intermediate (blue) terrain.
