Where to stay in Teluride

Looking for a place to ski this winter. Any info on Teluride (skiing, hotels, other activities) - both pro's and cons - will be appreciated. Thanks!

We went to Telluride in March. We stayed at nice condos, but they weren't very convenient--a van ride and a gondola to get to the ski hill, an additional gondola ride to get to town.

If we were to go again (which I doubt), I'd stay in town, very close to the gondola so it was easy to get to skiing in the morning and easy to walk around town in the evening.

What is your price point for Accomodations? If you want to go on the lower side of $$$, try http://www.victorianinntelluride.com/

It is in town, close to the gondola and is about the least expensive option.

There are 2 parts to "Telluride". There is the town of Telluride which has the majority of shops, restaurants etc. Then there is Mountain Village that has a small central "village" with limited shops and places to eat. There are several condos in both locations, but more in MV.

Thanks for the info and links! Great info!

So do you have to drive from Telluride to the ski resort? I am a lil hazy about that. We are looking for a place in the $250 range, but would love to go less expensive if possible.

Can you get from Tel. to Ouray in the winter?

Look at pages 68-9 for a map:
http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/...ec#/8cd6d42b/1

Town of Telluride is in the valley/box canyon. The Gondola runs up the mountain to where you ski. Then another Gondola takes you over to Mountain Village. You park in one place [where ever you are staying] and basically leave the car there unless you are taking a daytrip. You then use the Gondola to get between the 3 areas [Telluride, The ski area and Mountain Village]. There is also a mini- bus {The Galloping Goose} that you can take between MV and Telluride.

If you want to rent a condo, we like http://www.telluridelodging.com/

You can drive from Telluride to Ouray, it is doable as long as the roads are ok; can be tricky if snowy. 145 to 62 to 550.

If you going to Telluride - you can fly into Telluride or Montrose [not sure how many flights a day there are so IF there is bad weather, you can get stuck. I would not fly into Telluride, not the best landing strip]. It will be expensive to fly into either. A bit less expensive would be to fly into Durango. Same things re: limited flights, also a longer drive. About 2.5 to 3 hours.

The least expensive flight may be to Albuquerque and then drive, but that drive will be about 5.5 hours.
