Telluride, Colorado is a historic 19th century mining town turned world-class ski resort. The town sits in a box canyon at 8,750ft., surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountain scenery on the planet. Besides the skiing and snowboarding, Telluride also offers amazing cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, and many more winter activities. The summer is just as amazing as the winter with concerts and festivals, as well as, the hiking, biking, climbing, and a host of other outdoor favorites. This is my kind of town, and if you love natural beauty and being outdoors, this is your kind of town too.
