USA Today awards Telluride #1 spot of list of Ski Resorts with a “Pure Awesomeness Factor”!

Telluride has been making the news a lot lately! USA Today recently awarded Telluride the number one spot on its list of the Top 10 Ski Resorts, with a “Pure Awesomeness Factor” of 99.0, and it’s easy to see why. Telluride offers visitors from around the country and across the globe a vacation getaway like no other. Long a popular ski and golf resort destination offering ski slopes ideal for novices, experts and everyone in between, this stunning mountain town nestled in the magnificent Rocky Mountains of Colorado also boasts historical landmarks, a western museum, fine dining at local restaurants, a beautiful Town Park, resort accommodations, and loads of outdoor adventures. Skiers enjoy Telluride slopes well into the spring, where slopes excel due to high elevations and northern exposures that help preserve precious snow.

TripAdvisor also awarded Telluride’s Inn at Lost Creek in Mountain Village the number four spot on its list of Traveler’s Choice Awards for America’s best hotels, also ranking it #1 for Best Service in the U.S. The hotel is also home to one of Telluride’s best restaurants, offers residents and visitors ski-in/ski-out access, and personalized service at the Telluride Golf Club. The TripAdvisor awards are given based on millions of customer reviews and opinions, offering travelers an idea of what previous customers have experienced and what they can expect when choosing their accommodations.

Telluride racked up yet another award from USNews and World Report, when it ranked Telluride as number one Best Small Town to Visit in the USA among towns “filled with charm and plenty of friendly locals” stating, “This Colorado town woos visitors with its captivating scenery and delightful Mountain Village.” In addition to the unmatched natural beauty of the area, visitors to Telluride and locals alike enjoy many cultural events and foot-stomping festivals throughout the year, one of the newest of which is the Original Thinkers festival, which began in 2018. The Telluride Daily Planet reported the festival drew “robust crowds of attendees enthralled by the music, dance, film and ideas that were generated by the festival’s guests.”

Whether you’re looking for a new mountain destination, the perfect ski slopes, outdoor adventures galore, a place loaded with interesting history (did you know that this former mid-1800’s mining town was the setting for Butch Cassidy’s first bank heist in 1889?), or a fun, unique festival experience, you should definitely consider a vacation in Telluride.
