If you haven't been to Telluride / Mountain Village, you may not be aware of the importance of the gondola to the economies of both towns.

Both depend on the gondola to efficiently shuttle visitors back and... More

Some of the employees who work for the gondola appear to be stoned or drugged out of their minds, could not answer simple questions, and are hostile toward tourists and non "locals." The gondola employees are running off good tourists and behave like angry drug addicts. I was appalled by the lack of professionalism.

Such a great way to get from Telluride to Moutain Village. It's safe, efficient & fun! Love taking the Gondala. The views are spectacular day & night! The town sparkles as you descend from Mountain Village!!

When we stayed in Mountain Village, we were able to take this gondola back and forth to Telluride. Spectacular views and the station attendants were very friendly and helpful.

So convenient and easy to get around by using the gondola. No need to drive or look for parking spaces once you have arrived.

Great way to travel. Enjoyed several beautiful and relaxing trips on the gondola. Great way to meet other travelers and locals. Is a well-used community transport. Feels safe and well maintained. I am usually afraid of heights--but not on this.

Every ski slope that is spread out over a large area should take a look at this setup. You can forget having a car and just go from place to place in style and comfort it's the best.

Breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, Telluride, & Mountain Village. What a great way to travel between the historic downtown and the newer Mtn Village. At mid-point, there's All-Red's, a high-end restaurant with amazing views. We ate in the bar at sunset, very romantic ... and at the base of the gondola (Mtn Village side), we stopped off for...
