Things to Do in Telluride
In winter, Telluride turns into a wonderland draped with what seems like continuously fresh powder. Telluride Ski Resort caters to a variety of abilities, from lessons and easy runs for beginners to challenging runs suitable only for highly advanced skiers. For those just starting out in the skiing and snowboarding world, you’ll find a variety of individual and group lesson options for both children and adults. Those who have put in plenty of time on the slopes already and are up for a thrilling adventure will want to explore the hike-to terrain that can only be accessed after embarking on a 10- to 45-minute hike from the top of the chairlift. This upper mountain area for advanced skiers only adds an extra layer of adventure to your day on the slopes. The ski area also has trails dedicated to Nordic skiers, a great option for getting in a solid workout while enjoying the mountain scenery.
Telluride continues to be a top adventure destination even outside of the winter season, thanks to its spectacular mountain scenery and accessible terrain. In an area dotted with waterfalls, alpine lakes, and crystal-clear mountain streams, it’s probably no surprise that the hiking here is packed with scenic views. The ski area also transforms into a top mountain bike destination in the summer and fall, continuing to provide downhill thrills. Though there are some easy trails within the park, the bike park largely caters to riders with at least some mountain biking experience. You’ll find a good mix of cross country, free-ride, and technical trails on which to hone your biking skills. And the lift-served routes make it easy to get in plenty of ride time!
From finding a cozy mountain café in which to dine to passing crystal-clear alpine lakes on your way to a breathtaking summit, there are so many ways to enjoy the beauty of Telluride!
A Foodie’s Paradise
We all love a good meal, we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t, but there are some people in this world that take dining to the next level. They are always on the lookout for the newest, the hippest, the most unusual, and when they find those spots, they read the menu as intently as our grandparents read the newspapers thrown on their stoop every morning. These people seem to actually understand the chemistry of cooking, instinctively knowing what flavors meld best with what, and although they will probably devour every morsel on their plates, not a bite will be taken until their cell phone camera’s capture the image of its perfection! (They also understand the importance of presentation and are woefully disappointed in restaurants don’t make the extra effort!)
For the foodies in your life, and yes, that title can be yours as well, Telluride can be paradise! Offering a selection of restaurants that do more than fill your belly, they feed your soul, the hardest thing you may have to do during your Colorado foodcation is actually push yourself away from the table. Start your mornings out with a visit to the Coffee Cowboy, and don’t let its rustic look deter you; the coffee they serve is the best in town, and their unique menu of beverages will never fail to awe! (Do yourself a favor and order their Cinnabliss Latte!)
Lunch at Brown Dog Pizza and a sweet midday treat from Telluride Truffle Artisan Chocolates will keep your energy tanks filled and your palate smiling. As the sun sets after a long day hiking, biking, or skiing down the slopes, you will have built up quite an appetite and probably a desire for something elegant and filling but may not have had your fill of the views from the mountain top. If this is the case, we suggest a dinner at Allreds Restaurant, located at San Sophia Station at the top of the Gondola ride. The views will whet your appetite and the meals, expertly prepared by the most talented chefs in town, will steal your heart! Offering prix fixe meals of American cuisine, silky wines that will encourage you to enjoy just one more glass, every bite and sip is guaranteed to be your favorite! They do close after the summer season (in mid-October) and reopen on Thanksgiving Day, so if you are planning a fall escape to Telluride, you might want to plan accordingly!
