Before skiingThe Telluride region was shaped over millions of years by changes in the climate and various rock formations. Originally an inland sea, the area was underwater until a mountain building episode called the Laramie Progeny pushed up the land 70 million years ago. Following that episode a period of volcanic activity added to the mass of these mountains as well as enriching them with minerals and heavy metals.

  • Telluride is more than just a ski town; don't forget, you're a tourist! But this is a lovely community within families raising their kids to do the things that they love. I've seen families out mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, attending music festivals..... it's beautiful beyond imagination.
  • Beautiful area, inspiring views, and a great atmosphere. I went during the summer, but it was still busy and full of festivals and great activities. The high altitude takes a few days to get used to, especially as you are walking (or taking gondolas) everywhere - you definitely get your steps in. There is a lot of wealth in this small town, which helps inspire an open and easy-going lifestyle.
