Telluride Named Best Ski Resort in North America
There are so many great ski resorts, it is really difficult to choose where to go for your next ski vacation. If you need some suggestions, heed the advice from fellow travel and ski enthusiasts. For five out of the past six years, Telluride has been named the #1 Ski Resort in North America in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.

Telluride rises above the rest with its no-nonsense attitude, a healthy mix of ski bums and artists, gorgeous location (170 inches of snow and 240 days of sunshine every year), and sublime winter sports. Easiest access is a 62-minute drive from Montrose Airport (MTJ) with daily service from Denver, Chicago, Dallas, and Houston.
Stats: One-day lift tickets average $86–$129. There are 148 trails, Galloping Goose being the longest at 4.6 miles, and 19 lifts and gondolas. Into heli-skiing? Telluride Helitrax can take you to more than 200 square miles of high alpine skiing (flying their helicopters from The Peaks Resort and Spa). Or, grab the kids and shake things up with snowbiking.
