Don't Miss!

The gondola is an incredibly fun way to get to skiing but also to get to the village on the other side of the mountain, go up for shopping or a great meal and mountain views!

The Mountain Village Gondola is quieter than most cars. It is a smooth, beautiful ride up the Mountain to Allreds Restaurant from the Mountain Village and then down to the town of Telluride. You could just enjoy yourself and ride the Gondola all day; it is also Sun Powered

We took the FREE gondola ride one night and loved it. It was clear night and the view was amazing. They supply blankets and on part of the ride we shared it with theses wonderful people from Detroit. You can see the snowcats doing their work and the town all light up. You can also stop at Alreds at the... More

Gondola lines were never long and always moved quickly. Interesting vantage point to check out trails or other places to explore. One morning we looked down and saw a bear on a hiking trail!

We weren't skiing this trip, but wanted to take in some scenic mountain views. Can't beat the free trip up the gondola for some amazing scenery!

What a great amenity. Free mass transit with great views between Telluride, Mountain Village, the Mountain Village Supermarket and the top of the mountain/Allred's Restaurant. When combined with the free bus service you really don't need a car in Telluride/Mountain Village.

I loved the ride, particularly on the way back from dinner, the mountain looked so quiet and peaceful under the light of the stars. it was a unique experience. The attendants were particularly helpful and solicitous.

The free gondola connecting Telluride and Mountain Village is the greatest public transportation anywhere! The views of the mountains and of the town thousands of feet below are incredible. It's very quiet, and the ride is smooth. Eight can cram into a car, but six is more comfortable. And if you're lucky you will have a nice chat with other... More

WOW! As usual the ride and view never gets old. Start the descent and see the beautiful town of Telluride with the box canyon at the end surrounded by mountain ranges snowed capped. I love it! One of the best bargains in the country as its free!!

Don't miss the gondola ride. It's magnificent. Even if you're not a skier you can go for the ride. They do allow your dog to ride. You can also take your bike.
