Amazing Views! The Gondola (also known as gondogola) is an easy way to travel from Telluride to Mountain Village or vice versa. Dogs are allowed on it, so you may travel with an adorable dog! Here is a hint: park at Mountain Village (which has free parking) and take the gondola down to Telluride!

We had dinner at a couple different restaurants in the Mountain Village area and both were very good. Lots of shops and fun things to do!

This is a wonderful free service. Taking it over to telluride from the mountain was always easy, coming back we always ended up a with a carful. Sometime a little overwhelming. Great view, if you want a car to yourself be patient.

If you are in town or up in Mountain Village using the gondola is a must. The view of the town of Telluride as you descend from Mountain Village is spectacular! The gondola cars are large clean and it is simply a fun ride. Parking in town can be a challenge at times so using the gondola for transportation is... More

Special dog paw prints mark the ones for dogs. Operators were so friendly! No charge in summer - makes the village easily acceptable.

Running 7am to midnight the gondola service makes going to and from town and the ski mountain village super easy free and convenient. You really wouldn't even need a car. Again its free for you bargain hunters its worth a round trip just for the views. The attendants are very friendly and helpful. A+A+A+

This was the highlight of my trip. It is free during the summer months and takes you down to the old downtown

Never a wait and always a great view. If going to Telluride, I recommend parking in Mountain Village - it's free (except for overnight) - and taking the free tram into Telluride. It's safe, secure and while very utilitarian with respect to transportation, it also offers a great view.

The Mountain Village Gondola was fast and easy to get on and was very convenient to get up to Mountain Village from Telluride. They even accommodated a stroller for people traveling in our group. Dogs are allowed too.
