“Still the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I hadn't been here in several years. Still the best skiing around. The expansions over the years have only made it better. Great place for skiers of pretty much any level.

“Skiing paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

If you do well in extreme altitude this mountain will do you proud. Lots of trails, various difficulty, short and long-run lifts, short lift lines, suprisingly good mountain-side food (bring the bank), and if you are as lucky as us - powder and more powder!

“Please don't come!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Don't come to Telluride.... because I want to keep it all to myself! I want to enjoy the majestic vistas, the spectacular runs, the friendly, low-key charm and the indescribably magic of the San Juan Mountains.
I've just spent the last 8 weeks touring 8 different ski resorts in the West, from Montana down to Colorado, and none come close to the splendor of Telluride. Hmmm.... maybe I didn't do a good job of convincing you to go elsewhere!.

“The Alps in Colorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

...only better... in my view. No lift lines, friendly attendants run in an orderly fashion. Mind-blowing mountain with something for everyone from the beginner to the head-case. Memorable visit. Loved it!

“Telluride like being at a private mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Heard it was remote but this truly was an experience. First off arrived down town at night and saw no one walking around, no t-shirt shops no big name restaurants. It was Friday night and it was a ghost town. Found a brewpub near the gondola and gave it a try. Walked inside and it was packed. So this is where the people are. Next morning we walked 100 yards to the Coon skin lift to our amazement we are 2nd in line to buy tickets and we get on the lift at 9 am for first tracks. Signs say Revelation bowl open today.First day of Feb. and it was the first day back bowl was open and there was none of Palymra peak open yet for the season. Snow started late in this part of the rockies. At first a downer thinking not much was open but after a full 7 hours of skiiing we realized there was plenty to ski and we never sat with anyone on a lift and never waited in a line expect for the newly opened Revelation Bowl. Ate Dinner up at the Mountain Village Italian restaurant. Again no one walkling around but restaurant was packed but no wait. Sat down and in less than 10 minutes salad and Pizza at our table. Gondola was excellent to get you from City up to mountain village. Enjoyed a Michigan basketball game at the Brown Dog restaurant home to the U of M club of Telluride. Go Blue! They even had Detroit style square pizza. Overall place was a mining town that now has skiing at the bottom and a modern bell and whistles ski resort at Mountain village but no crowds!!! I will be going back.
