Runs till midnight every day, and it's a great way to come down the mountain from skiing, if your last run isn't where your car or accommodations are. Also a fun way to relax, see the mountain, and get from Telluride to Mountain Village if you're just out for the day (as opposed to skiing).

First time rider and I can't wait to return! The views are beautiful & I was fortunate enough to ride with locals who shared alot of interesting information. The ride is free, so don't pass up the chance to enjoy the ride. There are donation boxes to help with cost associated with keeping this wonderful attraction running.

So wonderful and enjoyable and a good reason to stay in Mountain Village. Love staying in the Village then experiencing the gondola first over the Village then the ride up and over the mountain and down into Telluride. Coming from Arizona one reaches Mountain Village first before seeing Telluride so riding the gondola down into Telluride is your first view... More

The gondola is free if you are not skiing. In the evenings it takes you to and from the mountain village and town. Do not need a car!

You can take it till midnight (I think) with beautiful views of the town and surrounding mountains. Mountain Village has several restaurants and sports shops. At the mid stop you have views from the beautiful See Forever Trail.

The Gondola and lifts used throughout Telluride and Mountain Village are incredible. You don't even need to rent a car! We always land in Montrose and from there take the shuddle into Telluride. The drive is beautiful and only about an hour and a half. Once in Mountain Village, you will only need to walk to the Gondola and go... More

Beautiful ride. Can see the entire terrain. Was there for my daughter's wedding, and my then 90 year old mother and her walker were able to get on and off the gondola comfortably. Very nice.

The gondola between Mountain Village and Telluride is fantastic, and it's hard to believe it's completely free. We travelled with our young family - it's very easy to get on and off and each gondola comfortably seats at least 6 people.

The best New Year's ever! We watched about 200 skier's ski down a mountain to the Mountain Village with red flares while fire works were going off on top of the mountain!!! Absolutely beautiful. Would recommend this for families, couples or groups. It was an amazing site.
