This is by far the best ride around. And it's free! I think the only one in North America… You have to go during season, though, cause they close it down for maintenance during off season. It's a spectacular view and always fun chatting with people. And yes, you can take your dog, bike, skis, whatever. Special help for physically... More

We had so much fun riding the Gondola on a daily basis from Mountain Village. In fact, it was my 2 year old's favorite activity and we'd ride the gondola for the fun of it over and over again. I couldn't get enough of the view!

The gondola goes from the Mountain Village, to the ski resort, and down to the town of Telluride--all at no cost! Feel free to enjoy adult beverages without worries on the winding roads.

This is a fun trip and a great view. We go to the top every time we are in Telluride. Take a walk around and look at the view. Be careful during the ski season as you are in an active area for skiing. We rode down and back to Mountain Village once. Not worth a second time. Take a... More

The gondola operates very regularly over the summer as well as the winter; there are short down times in Fall and Spring, however. But when it runs? The ride is splendid, safe and environmentally sound. It changes daily; the mountain views combined with variations in weather keep it very interesting. And never a charge. If you have a bike? They'll... More

The Gondola is the best in the world, no charge, free, runs on green energy and is available from 7 am to midnight connecting the town of Telluride to Mountain Village. The staff are so helpful if you are by yourself but struggling with skis etc, and in a large group they ensure you safely get on board with all... More

Great ski resort and the free gondolas made it easy to get around. Free rides are always welcome when I ski:).
