Ever since its transformation from mining town to resort destination, Telluride has been one of the major Western hubs for alpine activities. Telluride Ski Resort boasts 1700 skiable acres, 300 inches of snow per year, and a wide variety of terrain that will satisfy beginner, veteran, and expert skiers and snowboarders. Telluride was even voted as the No. 1 ski resort in North America for 2012 by Conde Nast. Most visitors say that the best part of this wintry playground is that it's never over-crowded; after all, Telluride is the "best kept secret in Colorado".
When the snow melts, Telluride doesn't slow down one bit. The town offers a host of summer activities, including fly fishing and rafting on the crystalline snowmelt-fed San Miguel River, mountain biking on fir tree-lined alpine trails, and rock climbing in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. For visitors looking for more relaxing endeavors, Telluride has a world-class spa and a number of different nature tours. There are also excellent Western shopping options and several major film festivals every year, including the world-famous Telluride Film Festival.
Telluride is home to some of the best steakhouses in Colorado, as well as numerous fantastic Italian, Mexican, French, and Asian restaurants. That’s not all though; locally owned bakeries, cafes, coffee shops, and ice cream parlors broaden the types of food you can find during your stay at The River Club. You can find locally brewed beers at the city’s pubs, which also offer traditional American foods such as hamburgers and sandwiches.
Telluride was founded in 1878 as a mining town and quickly became a fixture of the American West. Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank in Telluride, and in 1891, a local entrepreneur joined forces with the famous Nikolai Tesla to build the world's first commercial-grade alternating current power plant just outside of town. Around the turn of the 20th century, a series of labor disputes between the miners and mine owners turned violent and garnered a visit from the Colorado National Guard. Things eventually settled down, and Telluride enjoyed for many decades a peaceful existence as a small, unchanging mountain town.
Then the 1970s came, and brought with them a new crop of entrepreneurs who envisioned a different future for Telluride than a small mining town. In 1972, the first ski lift was installed at the brand-new Telluride Ski Resort, and a new era for this sleepy little town began. Hippies, wealthy tourists, and even drug smugglers began flocking to Telluride, and the anti-growth cries of the local old-timers were drowned out by three decades of explosive economic growth that included a booming skiing industry and the annual hosting of one of the most famous international film festivals in the world. By the mid-1990s, Telluride was one of the premier mountain resort towns in the country, and remains so today.
