Third times a charm for Telluride in Condé Nast Readers Choice Awards For 2014! We thought we were lucky to get the nod two years in a row (2012 & 2013), but 2014 has delivered Telluride the trifecta, being awarded the “#1 Ski Resort In North America” for the third year in a row. The past few years have been huge for Telluride in terms of awards & accolades from major publications. Back in August we posted a blog summarizing the extensive list of awards Telluride has won over the past 2 years. In September National Geographic named Telluride as one of the ‘World’s 25 Best Ski Towns’ & in October Curbed Ski voted Telluride the #1 ski resort to visit this winter.
Condé Nast is widely viewed as THE travel resource for well heeled travelers. The exclusive publication releases it’s annual Reader’s Choice awards in December each year. In 2014 Telluride beat out Aspen, Vail, Deer Valley & Jackson Hole to claim the #1 position on the Conde Nast Readers Choice Survey. Scoring an overall 93.14%, Telluride scored #1 for trails & runs, lifts & lines, scenery, food & restaurants, accommodations & #2 for nightlife & pares ski & value. Writer David Jeffrey summarizes:
“Look at all those #1 rankings! Telluride rises above the rest with it’s no nonsense attitude, a healthy mix of ski bums & artists, gorgeous location (300 inches of snow and 300 days of sunshine each year), and sublime winter sports. Easiest access is a 75-minute drive from Montrose Airport (MTJ) with daily service from Denver, Chicago, Dallas & Houston”.
