For the fifth time in six years, Telluride has been named the #1 ski resort in North America in Condé Nast Traveler's annual reader survey.
Rising above the rest once again, Telluride remained in the summit of the annual ranking for its jaw-dropping surroundings, world-class skiing, dining and lodging, and experiences that are simply second to none. With 148 trails, 19 lifts and a one-of-a-kind free pedestrian gondola, the acclaimed resort is recognized for its unmatched scenery, peaceful atmosphere, uniquely unforgettable adventures, and notably the authentic community of Telluride.
Telluride’s signature dining choices are world-renowned, with acclaimed chefs and wine sommeliers at the helm. Particular standouts are the exquisite trifecta of Allred’s, Bon Vivant and Alpino Vino—the highest elevation fine-dining restaurant in North America at nearly 12,000 feet. The real question is whether you’ll have time to fully immerse in our foodie paradise.
Premier Telluride lodging that elevates the style of Telluride include the luxurious Franz Klammer Lodge, the boutique extravagance of the Inn at Lost Creek, and The Peaks Resort and Spa—which features the largest spa in Colorado.
“We are deeply honored to earn this distinction once again from Condé Nast Traveler,” said Bill Jensen, CEO of Telluride Ski Resort. “The biggest praise belongs to our exceptional team and the community of Telluride who work tirelessly to provide unparalleled experiences for all of our guests.”
