Once you see the canyon Telluride is in you will realize why people travel from everywhere to get here. Everything about the place is quaint, except the terrain. Lots of steeps but also a lot of fun trails for the not so advanced. If you want the extreme experience you can find... More

This is some of the gnarliest terrain in the country, though I wish it would snow a lot more here. We are in a hole where all the snow goes right around. Not too many people skiing the hard stuff either.
