Telluride Colorado Real Estate: Skiing

Telluride Skiing

A Small Town with a Big Personality

Telluride is the perfect blend of pure mountain splendor, historic charm, world-class skiing, and unsurpassable beauty.

The Mountain

Telluride is one big mountain. Big as in it soars to an elevation of 12,260 feet, with 3,500 vertical feet to have fun with. Here, nestled in the San Juans, we're always excited to see the snow fly and we get over 300 inches a year to keep all of us (and you) happy. Those are some pretty big numbers. Now, add in the unveiling of Prospect Bowl, and we've nearly doubled its size. And that sure is saying something, isn't it?
