About
One of the most unique forms of public transportation connects Mountain Village to Telluride offering stunning 360-degree views of the San Juan Mountains that extend as far away as Utah. The gondola, the first and only free public transportation of its kind in the United States opened in 1996 and was initially built to help improve air quality while expanding the ski area. It is entirely free to commuters and sightseers. Since then, it has become a popular attraction for residents and visitors alike, giving them a stunning ride that caps out at 10,540 feet above sea level. Approximately 3 million passenger rides annually – and safely – and more than 50 million passenger trips have been provided since opening day. The gondola operates roughly 287 days each year with routine maintenance scheduled during our shoulder season months. It takes about 12 minutes to get from the Town of Telluride to Mountain Village Village. It takes 3 minutes from Mountain Village Center to Market Plaza.

Effective, safe and best way to get to town
Oct 2021 • Couples
Visited during the last week of September. The Gondolas offer the best views of the peaks, town and fall colors. The system was efficient and felt safe at all times. Beautiful place to visit in the fall.

Easy way to get to Telluride with free parking
Sep 2021
Got on the gondola in mountain village, free parking and saved us the drive down to Telluride. Amazing that this is free. When the gondola takes off from the landing's it is very quick (exciting or scary) just so your not surprised.

One of the highlights of every trip here
Aug 2021
I mean what is not to love about the free and fun ride over mountain view village as well as the ride up to the mountain and down to telluride or vice versa. Try to do this at least a few times on each trip and it never gets old. Views are fantastic and actually with covid only place in town where anyone seems to care about it and masks are required only here at this point. Which seems super odd but also means you get to ride by yourself on the gondola. Not sure why but i will say Telluride seemed pretty nonchalant about covid rules considering how many visitors they have.

Fun Ride
Sep 2021
This was a fun thing to do, but not that long. We went in the summer, so we were not there for the skiing. It was fun to ride it up to the top and get out and check it out. The cool part is it is free, and dogs are allowed on the odd number carts. If in the area, you should check it out because it is a neat experience and has fantastic views from the top. It was also straightforward to get on and off, so everyone could get on and off.

Great view, usually a fun experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
Usually enjoy this experience but had a bad experience with one of the lift operators, I requested that only the two people in my party get on the lift, the operator kind of got an attitude with me, made us get off the lift and told us to wait. Totally disappointed by his attitude. I did contact the company and they truly apologized so I appreciated that. Other than that this is a great activity to do while you are in Telluride.

Look for the waterfall heading down to Telluride from Mountain Village
Aug 2021 • Family
This is a gorgeous ride to and from Mountain Village. We appreciated the mask on policy as we shared the ride a few times. No wait times made for quick trips! Very organized and friendly staff.
