Amazing experience

Something every visitor should do if they come to the area...ride the gondola! For free! An easy way to explore two very different, yet easily connected towns.

can't beat the free ride; two separate gondola circuits; one from the village to Telluride, then from village to Mountain village which has a market

The gondolas are THE way to go from Mountain Village to Telluride! The operators are helpful and cheerful. We were staying across the street from the station so it was very convenient. Sometimes we would ride just to see the sunset.

We have been traveling to Telluride for years and this is truly a hidden gem. There is parking both at the market and at the shops further into Mountain Village (MV). We like to eat and shop at both MV and Telluride and the free gondola is the only way to go.

It's free, fast and has amazing views plus the attendants are friendly and efficient. It makes it very easy to go from one side to the other. It even takes strollers, bikes and dogs. It's a winner.

A free gondola, that in and of itself is amazing, but it was really convenient to be able to take the gondola from Mountain Village all the way down to town and back. Since we were staying in the village, this made it really easy and fun to go to town without having to take the car and look for... More

Great way to see Telluride from above..... Quiet journey takes you to/ from Mountain Village/ Telluride with awesome scenery. Is free by the way.... Another interesting fact--- one and two million riders each year.

And the best thing is it was free. How can you beat that? A great credit to Telluride with their forward thinking, the gondola is solar powered and it keeps a lot of cars off the road between the village and the town. The total time from the village to town is 13 minutes and you couldn't drive it in... More
