Everyday is perfect when you’re in Telluride. We’ve carved out a 5-day itinerary that takes you through the hot spots at one of the best ski resorts in the world.
Day 1: Stretch your legs
The myth that it’s difficult to get to Telluride continues to get busted with each passing year. The resort is a mere 65-minute ride from Montrose-Telluride Regional Airport, through a scenic highway that previews the San Juans and paints a portrait of Southwest Colorado. There are nonstop flights to Montrose from many major U.S. cities like Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark, Phoenix and more. Even better, United Airlines partner, Boutique Air now offers flights from Denver International Airport to Telluride Regional Airport, a short 10-minute ride to the resort.
