One of the best gondolas anywhere, the views from the top are Spectacular. The staff are helpful, and they will slow/stop the gondola if you have any mobility issues. There is a great restaurant at the top. This gondola takes you to 3 different areas, Downtown Telluride at the bottom, Mountain Village, and the ski area. It's great and the... More

Lovely Telluride! It's my second home! The gondola is one of the best I've ever been. Telluride is quite remote and hard to get to, so plan your trip well. Cheers

I watched a video of the gondola ride and thought it looked a little scary. The view is so distractingly beautiful that fear never entered my mind. It was incredible and such an asset to both communities that are so different from each other. Without the gondola we wouldn't have enjoyed the Mountain Resort side of Telluride. We were there...

Love the Gondola. Easy way to get around and you can't beat the view of the mountains and surrounding area. Very friendly staff and it's free - paid for by Telluride

Nice ride to the top. Did not have to wait in line but of course, it is off season. Clean gondolas, nice operators.

This is a beautiful ride from Mountain Village to Telluride whether in winter for skiing or summer for the beauty of it. Although parking is scarce in Telluride, we parked in the lot at Mountain Village and rode the gondola to Telluride. It's a spectacular view of a most beautiful place.

We took the gondola ride up the mountain from our lodging in downtown Telluride and loved it. A nice way to get to the mountain village and also to stop midway to get some nice fall photos. We even saw a few elk on the way down right at sunset. Had some nice conversation with others while enjoying the ride.... More

Loved being able to jump on day and night to enjoy the ride and views up to the top and down to the other side. Great friendly staff operating the system.

Having this service while staying in Mountain Village was so convenient and picturesque both day and night. We were traveling with my 88 year old mother and the staff couldn't be more accommodating in slowing and even getting the gondola to almost a complete stop for ease of her entering and exiting the gondola.
