Things To Do in Telluride

When the snow starts falling, we don’t retreat indoors! We stay outside for the wonderful array of Telluride activities in winter. Our Colorado location is an amazing winter wonderland and playground for winter sports enthusiasts. With the world-class Telluride Ski Resort and traditional winter activities like Nordic skiing and snowmobiling, you won’t want to miss our winters. We also have some more eclectic winter activities like horseback riding in the snow, dog sledding, and even biking in the snow with the use of fat tire bikes.
