Should you stay in Telluride or Mountain Village for your vacation?

Deciding the best spot to stay is a tricky question for many first time visitors to Telluride. You might be wondering, what is the difference between Telluride and Mountain Village? Which location is preferred in winter and summer? I’m bringing my kids, which is the best location for our family?

Let’s start with the two different locations – Telluride & Mountain Village.

The Town Of Telluride

Telluride town is the original, historic Victorian mining town that was settled in the late 1800’s. This charming, quaint town is set in a dramatic box canyon, with Alp-like peaks rising up 12-14,000 feet above the valley below. You have very likely seen the iconic image of Ajax Peak hovering high above Colorado Avenue, dwarfing the town below. There really is no mountain town quite like Telluride in North America! The accommodations in Telluride town tend to be smaller than Mountain Village. You can stay in a gorgeous, Victorian vacation rental home, a riverside condo or a town home. The majority of restaurants, bars and shops are in Telluride town, and town generally has more vitality year round. Everything in Telluride town is within walking distance.There is a free shuttle bus, the Galloping Goose, that laps around town every 10-15 minutes. To access Mountain Village, you can jump on the free gondola that links Telluride town and Mountain Village. It takes about 15 minutes to travel between the two, and offers some of the most stunning views of the area. The ski area also connects the town of Telluride and the town of Mountain Village. You can ski right into town. There are 2 main lifts that give you access to the ski hill (Chair 7 & 8) as well as the free gondola mentioned earlier.

Mountain Village

Mountain Village is the resort town of the ski area. It resembles the main hubs of Snowmass and Beaver Creek – that is, purpose built villages that were constructed in the last couple of decades to satisfy the needs of the growing ski area. Mountain Village has large hotels, condos, town homes, and some fairly impressive large ski in/ski out homes. Mountain Village is a very spread out area. There is the main core of Mountain Village which is mostly pedestrian based, and then a number of residential developments fanning out over several miles.

But where should I stay?

Now…the burning question! Where should you choose for your Telluride vacation? During the winter months, I usually recommend people with small kids stay in Mountain Village. The ski access is easier, and this fact generally trumps everything else for parents with small kids. However, I always like to point out that Mountain Village gets very quiet at night. If you like to dine out, you will likely be riding the gondola down to town each night. Most kids love riding the gondola so this is a bonus! However, when it is really cold, riding the gondola can seem less like fun, and more like effort. For couples, and people with older kids, I recommend staying in town. If you fall into this category, you will likely want to head out for cocktails and dinner, and it’s definitely nicer to be in town so that you are not sitting on the gondola for half of your night! You also don’t want to have to be subject to the “Cindarella gondola syndrome” – that is, you have to make it to the gondola by 12 midnight or you are stuck without a way to get home. During the summer months, you really can’t beat staying in Telluride town. This may seem like a tough decision, as many of the impressive vacation rental properties in Mountain Village are priced lower during the summer months. However, I highly recommend staying in Telluride town during the summer, as this is where 95% of the action is.

I hope this post clears up some of the questions you have regarding the different locations. If you have ANY further queries about your Telluride vacation, or accommodation options, please call us at Lodging In Telluride on 888-998-6471. I would also love for you to leave any comments below!

10 Essential to Pack for your Telluride Summer Vacation

Packing for your summer vacation in Telluride can be fraught with uncertainty. We’ve all sat, slumped over our suitcase the night before we are meant to leave for a trip, suitcase bulging with things you probably don’t need (and likely won’t use!), wondering what on earth you have left out, and what you might need but haven’t thought of. Here at Lodging In Telluride, we want to create a little cheat sheet for you. If you are planning a vacation to Telluride this summer for a wedding, 14’er mission or just for some fresh mountain air, we want to help you be prepared!

1. Sunscreen – Telluride does not get super hot during the summer, but we are at 8750 feet elevation, meaning the sun packs some punch at altitude! The number one thing to throw in your suitcase is sunscreen!!

2. Waterproof Jacket – summer storms come out of nowhere here in the San Juan mountains. If you are out hiking or biking, pack  waterproof jacket. Don’t be fooled by the blue skies and sunshine in the morning. At 3pm it can be a very different story!

3. Running/Hiking Shoes – even if you aren’t a big hiker, I can bet you will feel inspired to take some long walks while you are here in Telluride. Throw in your running shoes just in case.

4. Yoga Mat – nothing balances the body better than a good stretch at the end of a big day’s hike. We have 2 amazing yoga studios here in Telluride. If you have never tried yoga before, you might feel the urge to give it a go on your Telluride vacation.

5. Long Sleeve Shirt – the sun is always shining in Telluride, and it’s rays can be very intense. If you plan to be out in the sun for long periods, pack a light weight cotton shirt so you can protect your skin and stay outside without frying yourself.

6. Swimsuit – many condo complexes have a hot tub, and some have a pool (like the Viking Lodge & Lulu City). We also have the town pool for a refreshing dip. You might even feel the urge to jump in the river….if you’re brave! Don’t forget to throw your swimsuit in your suitcase.

7. Flip Flops – It’s nice to have a pair of shoes that you can slip on & off without a hassle. Flip flops are the perfect footwear option for lazy summer days hanging on Telluride’s Main Street.

8. Fleece/Sweater – Telluride, in my opinion, has the perfect summer climate. Most days hover in the mid 70’s. If it hits 80, that’s a hot day. At night, temperatures can drop off, especially if there has been an afternoon storm. Sometimes we randomly get snow in June and August. Don’t forget to pack a sweater, fleece or something warm you can throw on if it gets cold.

9. A wide brimmed hat – caps look cool, but the only thing to keep neck burn at bay is by wearing a full brimmed hat when out and about during the day.

10. Reusable water bottle – stainless steel is ideal. Help us keep our beautiful mountain town beautiful by limiting use of one time use plastic water bottles. Stainless steel water bottles also keep you healthy as they do not leach harmful chemicals into your water as plastic sometimes does.
