Once a numerous and nomadic people, the Utes were the first to visit Telluride valley. Making their summer camps along the San Miguel River, they hunted in the surrounding mountains for elk, deer and mountain sheep. In the winter, they retreated to the lowlands and nearby red rock canyons of the desert to find shelter and dry ground. For centuries, this way of life continued unchanged.

What Makes Telluride Unique? Telluride is a small ski resort in the southwest corner of Colorado. Tucked away in a box canyon, surrounded by the mighty peaks of the San Juans, Telluride started off as a mining town in the 1800’s and later on, in 1973, became a ski resort. Since Telluride was discovered as a world-class spot for powder skiing the Telluride Ski Resort has grown into 2,000+ skiable acres spread over 120 ski runs and hike-to-terrain and 18 lifts (including 2 gondolas).
