Best way to get to town, simply step out of the hotel to the gondola station where frequent gondolas will take you down the mountain side to town and later return you. I can't imagine driving back and forth to town with this available, Towns with shuttle buses to transport their patrons to town (Crested Butte) should consider the gondola... More

Stayed at Bear Creek Lodge and the gondola is within walking distance about 3 blocks and took us all the way to old town Telluride.

This thing is awesome. U might want to ride it 10 times over and over. Best thing is its free. It's about a 10-15 minute round trip, worth riding at least once.

If you are staying in Mountain Village, this feature is invaluable! A pleasant 15 min gondola ride into the old part of town, where you can wine and dine and not worry about the ride home!

Because of the gondola in Telluride you do not need your car to vakation there. Easy to go from Mountain village to town and back. Open from 7 to midnight. Very friendly personell.

we rode the gondola to the rehearsal dinner and wedding on top of the mtn. To go Mtn Biking and hiking with our dog. This is such a great FREE system. Telluride has it going on. Look for the gondola cars with the pet sticker every 4th car is pet friendly.

What a great way to see the town of Telluride from the top...and it's free. The gondola makes a stop so you can hike the many trails from there or you can stay on and proceed to Mountain Village with it's restaurants and shops. It's available all day and you can't beat the thrill.

If you are in Telluride, you HAVE to ride the gondola! You can get on and off any time of the day until midnight and the best part is, it's free. The views are amazing! And, if you get a chance to ride it at night (when it's dark), it's a whole other experience...can be a bit scary, but pretty... More
