You know when the New York Times writes an article on Telluride, it confirms that our beautiful box canyon is no longer Colorado, or North America’s best kept secret. Times writer Christopher Solomon spent 36 hours in Telluride and wrote an article aptly named 36 Hours In Telluride, Colorado. You may have caught recent reports that Oprah just snapped up a $14 million Telluride home, so she has somewhere to stay while she builds her ‘real’ home nearby. While Tom Cruise famously has his estate on the market for a cool $59 million. Add to this, in 2015 Telluride was voted one of the top ski towns in America by SKI Magazine, Forbes, Travel & Leisure & Sunset Magazine. Prettiest town, most friendly, best food, best skiable terrain, the accolades go on & on. Whether you love the publicity that Telluride generates, or hate it, we are no longer able to hide away from the world like we could 20 years ago. Telluride is firmly on the radar of international jet setters and ski fanatics!
Times article starts out with this perfect description of Telluride…
There are steeper ski resorts than Telluride. There are ski resorts that get more snow. But few places are more friendly and prettier than this town at the end of a box canyon in the tall San Juan Mountains, a place so cinematic that Quentin Tarantino was here last winter filming his forthcoming western, “The Hateful Eight.”
Solomon goes on to name a few of Telluride’s favorite places & hot spots for locals and visitors. We love the mentions it gives to Wagner Custom Skis, Telluride’s very own home grown custom ski producer. We also agree with the mention of the Butcher & the Baker, La Cocina de Luz & There Bar, a few of our favorite places for food and drink! Other important mentions include Telluride Brewing Company, fat bike tours and Cashmere Red for retail therapy!
