Skiing and Snowboarding
Telluride gets over 300 inches of snow and 300 days of sunshine a year – ideal conditions for skiing and snowboarding. Spend a day on Telluride’s 2,000 acres of slopes, which accommodate skiers and snowboarders of all levels. You’ll be treated to gorgeous panoramas of snow-covered mountains at every turn. Break for lunch at Bon Vivant, a French restaurant at the top of the Polar Queen Express Lift. Enjoy a glass of French wine with a cinnamon and sugar crepe while admiring a breathtaking view.
Bike & Bevies Craft Beverage Tour
This unique outing combines snow biking with a visit to Telluride’s brewery and distillery. The Bike & Bevies Craft Beverage Tour begins with a guided three-mile ride on fat tire bikes through the snow. Your destination is Telluride Distilling Co and Telluride Brewing Co, where you’ll take a tour, learn how their beverages are made, and enjoy a sample. It’s a fun opportunity to try a new outdoor sport, learn about Telluride, and taste some local beverages.
Dashing Through the Snow
See the beautiful Colorado mountains on horseback! During winter, Telluride Horseback Adventures offers guided horseback rides and sleigh rides through the snow. You’ll be taken out by owner Roudy Roudebush, an enthusiastic cowboy who has spent more than four decades exploring the Telluride area on horseback. Enjoy the old-school charm of the ranch and admire the picturesque scenery during your ride. Remember to bring a jacket, scarf, and gloves to stay warm in the snow.
Baked in Telluride
Downtown Telluride is home to Baked in Telluride, a local restaurant that serves an impressive variety of food, including breakfast croissants, turkey dinners, pizza, Mexican cuisine, and pasta. Grab a spinach and feta croissant for breakfast before a day of skiing, or stop in for dinner for a plate of Fettuccini Alfredo, featuring their homemade pasta. One of the restaurant’s best assets is a huge selection of donuts, pastries, cookies, scones, and muffins – we recommend taking a few treats home with you.
