Sh*t People Say About Telluride

Telluride is a town named after a rare exotic metal that became a rare — and in it’s own way exotic — destination.

Telluride has been a mythical place for me ever since I heard about it in the ski movies that my family watched each year in the weeks leading up to opening day. Narrators always spoke about Telluride with deep reverence. It was a legend.

When I finally visited in 2013 the resort it lived up to my ideas about it as a young boy. Pretty much every house in Telluride is a ski-in ski-out if you’re willing to walk a few blocks in your boots. Tourism development has been kept largely separate from the old mining town itself, helping to maintain it’s old mountain town charm. The mountains are as epic as any I’ve seen.

When we visited we asked the locals how they felt about it. This is what they told us.

Do you think Telluride could be the best ski resort in the USA?
