WOW! It’s been a huge few months for Telluride. Right before the winter, Telluride was ranked the #1 Ski Resort In North America by a Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Survey… for the 3rd year in a row!!

Fodor’s Travel has just included Telluride in it’s list of ’10 Most Scenic Cross Country Skiing Destinations’. With our famously preserved valley floor, as well as cross country skiing within the ski resort & Lizard Head Pass, Telluride offers some of the most spectacularly beautiful cross country terrain in Colorado. Zachary Laks of Fodor’s writes:
Make your way up to the top of Lift 10 for Telluride Ski Resort’s TopAten Snowshoe and Nordic Area where 10 kilometers of well-manicured trails await high in the sky. The acclaimed trails take skiers through snow-covered evergreens and rolling meadows and provide spectacular views of Prospect Bowl, Palmyra Peak and the surrounding San Juan Mountains. For the more advanced cross country skiers, winding trails to Alta Lakes on National Forest trails are just off site.
Insider Tip:The Telluride Fire Festival is an exciting annual weekend long festival celebrating the many ways flames are manipulated and transformed into performance art. This year’s event will run from January 15 through 19.
