Telluride—the historic mining town parked firmly at the end of a box canyon in southwest Colorado—is one of the most awe-inspiring ski destinations in North America. Fourteen thousand-foot peaks tower above the small town, which is the home of Telluride Ski Resort, one of the best spots in the state to get your steep-skiing fix.
Bald Mountain, Black Iron Bowl, the Gold Hill Chutes and Palmyra Peak (all hike-to terrain) provide a variety of thrilling runs, and the rest of the mountain ain’t too shabby, either. And, for those seeking the absolute best snow in the area, Telluride Helitrax can provide a helicopter bump (when weather allows) to some of the most incredible skiing in the state.
Brett Schreckengost put together an incredible video reel that highlights the astonishing beauty of the town, resort and its culture. Enjoy the clips and get the hell to Telluride this season.
