Telluride Information

Last week I blogged about our new Telluride Rental's video, introducing our staff members and providing an overview of our various roles. We also made another video which shows the difference between Telluride and Mountain Village. We made this video because a question we get asked frequently by prospective guests is: where should I stay, Telluride or Mountain Village? Here is the video, let us know what you think!

There are definitely some notable differences between the towns of Telluride & Mountain Village. Telluride is an old mining town with a quaint, Victorian feel. This is the original town of Telluride, and this is where most of the shops, restaurants and nightlife are located. You can ski into Telluride town, and you can also access the mountain by choosing from 2 chairlifts and the gondola. Town also hosts the summer festivals in the Telluride town park.

Mountain Village is the newer, resort town. Mountain Village is the hub of the ski resort activities, and there are a number of hiking and biking trails that start in the village core. There are several hotels and condo developments in Mountain Village, and this is also where many of the larger private homes are located. Mountain Village is typically busy during the day, and is more quiet at night.

The free gondola system connects the towns of Telluride & Mountain Village, and operates from 7am-12am, daily. The ride takes about 15 minutes.

If you have any questions about these differences, or are still unsure about which located is best for your stay, please do not hesitate to call Telluride Rentals on 800-970-7541.
