For the avid skier, Telluride represents minimal lift lines, fresh powder, an average of 300 sunny days per year, and lifts that rise straight up from town providing you with access to more than 2,000 acres of some of the world's finest skiing. Compared to other ski towns, Telluride provides skiers with the unique opportunity to stay in town (versus on the mountain) for easy access to shopping, restaurants, and hotel accommodations while still providing equally as easy access to the slopes. This unique benefit provides the quintessential ski trip for the entire family. In this casual, non-glitzy approach, there is no frenzied dash to get on the lift, but rather convivial and varied options from morning to night.
Telluride's quintessential Main Street is by no means cookie-cutter. The fabric of Telluride is woven through it's local business owners, denizens, and spirit. It encompasses small town charm with world-class culture. The New Sheridan Hotel is located in the heart of historic Old Town Telluride with community-driven neighbors such as the Sheridan Opera House and Maggie's Bakery & Cafe. Devoid of any chain stores, Old Town's clapboard storefronts house independent art galleries, old-time bars, boutiques, historic buildings and an eclectic choice of restaurants.
