Spectacular views of Telluride village and then over the top to the Mountain Village. The Gondola is free and was operating continuously.

My 83 yr old dad struggled with the high altitude and could hardly breath and walk; however, he really wanted to ride the gondola. He moves so slow and his balance was off, yet they completely stopped the gondola so he could board and unload. He and my mom loved the ride up to Mountain Village and back down. Thank... More

The Gondola ride was awesome and the staff was very helpful. You can ride for free all day long. This is a great way to get to some the best hiking and biking trails in Telluride. It's a great way to meet people and the workers in the Village use it to commute to work.

Excellent concept as well as a serene and beautiful ride between Mountain Lodge, Mountain Village, and Telluride. You can even take your dog on selected gondolas.

Rode the gondola for some scenic views. There was no wait to ride and it was free. The views were better on the ride back into telluride than going up the mountain.

I got to ride the gondola many times, back and forth from Mountain Village to Telluride and the Brews and Blues Fest. The views are always spectacular, changing depending on time of day. Fun to spot wildlife; we saw a yellow porcupine. The folks who work there were uniformly kind and cheerful, and very patient and efficient when there was... More

This is a great way to see the area. The gondola is free and you can even take your pet if you want to. There are special gondola cabs for pets. We loved the round trip ride. Beautiful view of Telluride and surrounding area.

The Gondola that connects Telluride the town and Mountain Village where much of skiing takes place is a stroke of genus. It is free and runs from morning until 2:00am every day while the resort is open.

This is sustainable transportation at its best--a way of getting to Allred's restaurant at the top or to the lodging and a few shops, the conference center, and parking lots.
