I love the terrain in Telluride. They have some really nice runs and I found the mountain fairly easy to navigate. It does take a little adjustment to the elevation. We definitely experienced some altitude sickness. Telluride is a relaxed, easy going place. One quick gondola ride and you are in town.

This a wonderful amenity for the town. Stayed in mountain village for the skiing but took the gondola to town for local fare and shopping. It's a quaint town with unique opportunities. Lots of good food and entertainment.

Best system to travel back and forth between town and village. Just need to be mindful of time (before midnight). Attendants are usually helpful and courteous.

The gondola is very convenient for tourists and locals to get from Mountain Village to the town of Telluride. It's a beautiful view up and down the mountain. Plus for extra chilly rides, there are blankets available on each stop to grab and leave at your final stop. As a tourist I did not know that, but appreciated the tip... More

The uber-advanced, new, and clean gondola system in Telluride makes a car redundant. These beautiful gondolas criss-cross Mountain Village and go down to the town--all like Jetson's era sky travel. Catching one conveniently located in Mountain Village allows you to go to other parts of the Village and get some of the best views anywhere, even when not skiing. It... More

This gondola ride was really fun. Seeing the mountains and telluride village from up high was lovely. There is a stop where you can get off and hike a bit. I recommend this ride for anyone who would like a peek and it is great for families, seniors and couples. Stop at the top and have a bite at one... More

This is a wonderful "free" thing to do in Mountain Village Telluride. We took the Gondola 2-3 times a day it is beautiful in the day and at night.

This was my first trip to Telluride and I loved it we stayed in Mountain village but went to Telluride via the gondola everyday. I did not ski this trip and I loved taking the gondola. It was so well managed. I will be back to Telluride!

We are NOT skiers. We went to Telluride for the Fire Festival and to simply check it out. Telluride has it together. The gondola system is clean, efficient and FREE. We went to the Mountain Village and ate dinner (highly recommend Allred's).
