We had a great time on the gondola and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We went as a family with one year old twins and 4 adults and it was easy loading with the stroller and everyone else riding! Great experience. Oh and it is Free!

It's free, fun, nice views of Telluride and gets you to more restraurants and shopping. The ride to the first stop is about 10 - 12 minutes, providing hiking, sking, mountain biking, picture taking opportunities. The second stop is Mountain Village, about 8 minutes.

This gondola is FREE. It gets you from Mountain Village, which is where our hotel was located to Telluride. We took the gondola a couple times during our stay in the area. Our first time was at night after a rain storm and it was pitch black during parts of this and you could see absolutely nothing in front of... More

Great Free ride between old town and The Mountain Village. Did I say it was A Free Ride! Anyway it's a great 10 minute ride with spectacular views of the box canyon that Telluride sits in. It's a great place to snap a few photos while taking a smooth quite ride up and over the mountain top.

The best way to travel to and from one town to another. Every ski resort should have such service. The staff is always friendly and very helpful in getting bikes and skis on and off the gondola.

We actually stayed in Mountain Village and took the gondola back and forth to Telluride daily. Almost preferred doing it this way because the ride was so beautiful, day or night! We were there during mid August but no wait with pleasant, friendly staff.

In a world where almost everything costs, the Telluride/Mountain Village gondola is free, and it is non-stop to midnight connecting the two parts of Telluride with a stop at St. Sophia at 10,500 feet. You can take your bicycles on the back of the gondola and go for hikes or biking at several stops. This is something for the entire... More

The gondola was a short walk from our room, runs continuously from 7 AM to Midnight, has the most incredible views and best of all, it's FREE!! It's a great way to get back and forth from Telluride and take your bike up to the trails!!

What a wonderful way to see Telluride.Anytime is great time to take the Gondola.I would Recommend taking it at sunset.The operators slow it down and provide ramps for wheelchairs. So it is really to take the Gondola with a wheelchair.
