Depending on the season you visit, Telluride will keep you busy. Skiing is the main winter activity, with options for ice climbing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing as well. The ski mountain has recently expanded to include back bowls and hiking options for the more advanced skier. The terrain is varied to satisfy any ability, with many high-speed quad lifts and great on-mountain restaurants for lunch and après ski. Visiting in the summer opens a Pandora’s Box of outdoor activities, with never enough time for them all.

The hotel attached is quite upscale (as is all of Telluride), so this is a nice saloon-style bar in the heart of town.
