Planning Your Telluride Trip

We want you to make the most of your stay of Telluride! You’ll also find a destination guide included in the electronic guestbook you will receive via email and text prior to check-in that is full of local guides to restaurants, shops, and essentials like local transportation and more.

Below, you’ll find our personal suggestions for meals, activities, services, and adventures you may want to consider for your trip. We want you to have an amazing getaway!

Lift Tickets/Passes 
If you are traveling to ski Telluride this winter, be aware that same-day lift ticket sales may not be available and are extremely limited. Advance pass/ticket purchase is required this year due to COVID-19 regulations. For details, visit this list of frequently asked questions about mountain access in the 2020-21 ski season.

Masks
You are strongly encouraged to travel with your own mask. The State of Colorado currently requires the use of face coverings in public indoor spaces and waiting for and using public transportation including the gondola. We have masks available, if you need a mask, please let us know.

Amenities
Wondering what standard amenities we provide? Check the list here.
**We have been required by local COVID-19 regulations to remove open containers from units such as spices, cooking oils, etc. These items that would normally be available in your unit are not at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.**

Airport Transfers
For shared rides, we recommend Telluride Express, as these guys have shared rides matching every flight.
For private rides, we recommend TelluRides who offer the best rates & personalized service.

Gondola/Bus 
The gondola is open and running for the winter season. Operating hours are 7am-midnight. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, limited passenger numbers will be loaded and masks are required for all passengers and drivers.  To download both the full bus schedule and the express schedule, please visit townofmountainvillage.com/bus.

Grocery Shopping
Clark’s Market in Telluride has everything you need, but it’s pricey. Clark’s also provides pick-up and delivery services.
We recommend stopping in Montrose or Cortez for stores with bigger selections & better pricing:
Consider placing an order online in advance and picking it up on your way into town, for example City Market’s Click List service is easy and convenient.

Food + Drink
During COVID-19, regulations/offerings are changing frequently: At this time, restaurants are open with 25% indoor dining capacity. Most restaurants are open for take-out and many are offering limited outdoor seating/service. For up-to-date information on services and availability check out SkiBrew.us. You might find tips about deals there, along with updates on retail and other services around town too. While some are offering modified or special menus at this time, you can get a feel for what each establishment offers via our Restaurants + Dining Guide.
