“Don't hesitate to stay in Telluride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

How can you not like a free gondola with stunning views that takes you places you want to go to? The gondola runs from 7 AM to 10 PM. The staff are great at helping you load and unload your skis. The gondola stations are central to both Telluride and Mountain Village.

“Fabulous free transportation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The free gondola system is a great addition to Telluride. There are two free gondolas: one between the mountain village and the town of Telluride and a second, shorter one between two sections of Mountain Village (the ski resort base and the grocery store plaza).

The shorter ride is very handy for making runs to the only grocery store on the mountain - or if you're staying near the grocery it's handy for transport to the resort base.

But it's the longer trip that provides the spectacular views. At night it's so pretty to be able to see both the stars and the lights as you approach/leave the town of Telluride. It can get very cold in the winter so be sure to grab a blanket or two from the station before you leave.

The gondola actually runs up and over the mountain and if you want to get out at the top for dining at Allred's it's the most convenient option. During the day the gondola is also used by skiers though lift tickets aren't checked until you exit the gondola.

Definitely something skiers and non-skiers alike should experience while in Telluride.

“Beautiful night light of the town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

As you take the free gondola ride from mountain village into the town of Telluride at night, the town is lit up with an amazing view! There are no heaters so if you need a blanket grab one from the racks or staff will hand you one as you're guided into a gondola.
