Winter in Telluride

Well, the holiday season is officially over here in Telluride! For those of you who were in Telluride over Christmas and the New Year, I'm sure you experienced a whole new level of cold, especially on New Years eve and New Years day. Brrrr. But is there any better place to be when temperatures plummet?

We took a trip to Silverton on January 2 which was magic. Aside from it being -18 degrees in the sun on the main street of Silverton at 10am, we had a fantastic day, enjoying the last weekend of unguided skiing, before the guided program kicks in this weekend. If you have never been to Silverton for a ski, put it on the list. It really is a journey back in time. It is a stunning 2hr drive from Telluride through the San Juans (even though it is only 17 miles as the crow flies from Telluride), and a perfect day trip from your Telluride base. The mountain is not for the faint hearted, it is expert skiing only, and there is zero luxury involved. But if you don't mind a bit of rough and tumble, this is skiing in the wild west in its most pure form!
