We are very excited to welcome you back to Telluride. Although things will not be the same as in years past, there are still many wonderful memories to be made this summer. We’re here to answer your questions and help in anyway we can. Let’s get started …
ARE VACATION RENTALS & HOTELS AVAILABLE?
Hotels and professionally managed short term rentals are opening in a phased approach, at 25% capacity starting on June 1, potentially increasing to 50% on June 22.
Because of the lower availability, rentals will most likely be more challenging to find. Please let us know if we can use our connections to help you in your search.
ARE BUSINESSES & RESTAURANTS OPEN?
Retail & Personal Service Businesses areopen and waiting for you. There are limited occupancy requirements and masks are required. Restaurants are excited to welcome you and your family/friends back to social dining. They will be operating at 50% of the posted occupancy code limit, not to exceed 50 people, whichever is less. Bars are not open at this time, with a reevaluation scheduled in June.
This summer, retail businesses and restaurants will be taking over part of Main Street for dining and shopping. Read more HERE.
WHAT EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES ARE HAPPENING THIS SUMMER?
With a lifetime’s worth of adventures to be had – Telluride’s recreation scene will be at the heart of this summer’s happenings. Leisurely stroll down the river trail with your morning latte or get your heart pumping with a brisk hike up a mountain peak (check out the new Bridal Veil Creek Trail), jump on a SUP board or into an inner tube and explore the local rivers and lakes, hop on a bike and tour the amazing landscape of trails for every level of expertise … the possibilities are endless. Please reach out to us if you would like any recommendations on things to do.
