The grand scale of Telluride, Colorado can shrink even the biggest skiing egos 
To truly experience Telluride, Colorado you must embrace feeling small-minuscule, actually. The former mining community turned ski town has a way of dwarfing and humbling you. And it can all start with a hair-raising flight into Telluride Regional Airport (TEX), which rests at an elevation of 9,078 feet, making it the highest commercial airport in North America. If you’re a true adrenaline junky, you may even enjoy touching down into Telluride while a formidable winter storm infiltrates the region, something I experienced firsthand in late February.

Thirty-Six Hours in Telluride
There are many reasons to fly private, but one of our favorites is the easy access it offers to destinations that are often considered difficult to reach.
Like Telluride, Colorado.
Thirty-Six Hours in Telluride
Set within a glacier-carved box canyon 360 miles from Denver, Telluride gives us everything we want in an alpine destination: dramatic scenery, tremendous skiing with no lift lines, a walkable downtown, and a sprinkling of celebrities, all wrapped up within the rocky peaks of the San Juan Mountains.
Here’s how we spend three perfect days in this winter wonderland.
Getting There
Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) is located just six miles outside of town and directly accessible from nearly anywhere in North America with XOJET’s fleet of Challenger 300 or Citation X aircraft. Perched at 9,070 feet, TEX’s runway is 7,111 feet by 100.
Day One – Two Towns

Telluride has two downtowns-Telluride and Mountain Village-and both are worth exploring. Start in Telluride’s compact downtown, a former mining village that has been named a National Historic Landmark District. Within the colorful Victorian buildings you’ll find the first bank ever robbed by Butch Cassidy, the circa-1913 Sheridan Opera House, galleries, shops, cafes, and restaurants. Overland is the place to go for snazzy fur boots and hats; there’s a good chance you’ll run into Bobbi Brown at Telluride Medicine Ranch, which stocks wonderfully fragrant therapeutic potions made from organic essential oils.
Perched on a mountain slope at 9,500 feet, Mountain Village is a European-style resort town set with an ice-skating rink, large hotels, boutiques, sport shops, and the city’s only Starbucks. Make time to tour Wagner Custom Skis’ just-opened showroom and let owner Pete Wagner explain how bespoke skis can make you a better skier, no matter your level.
The real fun, though, is traveling between the two via the free gondola that makes the 13-minute trip up and down the mountain every day from dawn until midnight.
Dinner at Allred’s
Which is located midway up the free gondola route, is a Telluride tradition. We try to arrive before sunset, made even better with a flatliner-Telluride’s signature espresso-and-Baileys cocktail-and the view from 10,000 feet. Don’t miss Allred’s elk steak, which is marinated in bourbon, or the crunchy deep-fried potato croutons.
Day Two – Skier’s Paradise

Photo: Telluride Ski Resort | Brad Foley
Telluride Ski Resort has a reputation for hard-core skiing, and it’s true: Helicopter and backcountry skiing are readily available, and the terrain within Black Iron Bowl, Gold Hill Chutes, and Palmyra Peak is legendary.
But what we love about Telluride is the staggering variety of runs available to non-experts. Of the 127 trails that crisscross Telluride’s more than 2,000 acres of skiable terrain, 23% are rated for beginners and 36% for intermediate skiers. Best of all, many blue and green runs start on tall mountain crests, giving novices a chance to take in stunning vistas before gliding down low-traffic runs more than four miles long, or trying out advanced-beginner-rated bowl skiing. You’ll have plenty of time to ski, too, since anything longer than a 3 minute wait to board the lift is considered a major traffic jam.
After a morning on the slopes, schuss onto the deck of Alpino Vino, a wine bar and restaurant perched at nearly 12,000 feet, or Bon Vivant, for Cassoulet, cheese, and other French-accented specialties. Both restaurants are open for Telluride’s daily après-ski party as well.
For dinner, refuel at La Marmotte, where CIA-trained chef and Jean-Georges’ Mercer Kitchen alum, Mark Reggiannini, serves French bistro fare in a cozy cottage.

Day Three

Make time for breakfast at the Butcher and Baker Café, a sunny downtown spot that serves cheesy egg sandwiches on homemade English muffins, decadent baked goods, and giant cups of steaming coffee.  Don’t skimp: You’ll need the energy for fat-tire snow biking, which involves riding mountain bikes outfitted with four-inch-wide, super-treaded tires through snow-covered single-track trails, along golf cart paths and through snowy neighborhoods. It’s a challenging ride-but ridiculously fun (especially if you fall into a drift).Bootdoctors runs half-day tours from Mountain Village.
Après ride with a Face Down Brown or Ski-in, Ski-Stout at Telluride Brewing Company, or stroll to Telluride Distilling Company for a Chairlift Warmer, a mixture of hot chocolate and crisp peppermint schnapps, or a Telluride Mule that’s mixed up with house-made vodka and ginger beer.

The Drinker’s Guide to Telluride
First things first: despite myths to the contrary, you don’t get drunk faster, when drinking at higher altitudes. You might feel the effects faster than you do at sea level, but the body processes the alcohol in the same way, regardless of the elevation. But elevation sickness is real, and its symptoms are hauntingly familiar to the impacts of over-drinking: dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, drowsiness, unsteady gait, headaches… The solution to avoid that sudden onset of overwhelming sensations, other than checking into a hyperbaric chamber, is to stay hydrated. Simply put, drink water, before you arrive and don’t stop until it’s time to go back home.
This is important to remember when visiting Telluride, a snow globe-perfect Colorado mining town that measures six blocks wide and 12 blocks long, all of it nestled into a picturesque box canyon. The town sits at 8,750 feet, and its eponymous ski resort tops out at 13,150 feet, making it one of the highest-elevation winter-ready locales in the country. Come from sea level, and you’ll feel the effects of the high altitude almost instantly. One flight of stairs at 8,750 feet will leave even the most in-shape person winded.
Telluride Brewing Company
Founded by brewmaster Chris Fish and bartender/friend Tommy Thacher, Telluride Brewing poured their first pint in 2012. Six months later, they took home the gold medal at the World Beer Cup for their Face Down Brown, a brew that was created largely because Fish didn’t like the other brown ales on the market. These were the heady days of Colorado’s craft beer infancy, back when the state only had about 150 microbreweries. Fast-forward to 2017 and the state boats more than 500 breweries, and Telluride consistently ranks among the best, continuing to win awards and make great beer year after year. And while they do have plans to move from their current location just outside of Telluride proper, their ambitions don’t include leaving Telluride-or even distributing out of Colorado.
