2. Arrive in style in Telluride
If you’re staying at one of the ski-in/ski-out resorts in Telluride’s Mountain Village, getting to the town itself couldn’t be easier—or more thrilling. A free, 10-minute gondola ride shuttles passengers from A to B, while providing some truly spectacular views. Although the scenery is stunning at virtually any time of the day (barring the occasional blanket of fog), the hour before sunset, when the sky turns a luminous gold, is particularly magical.
