Winter in Telluride

People often associate Telluride with the pleasures of winter. Even though this beautiful Colorado town offers plenty of attractions throughout the year, it’s especially famous for being a winter paradise and a popular destination during the season’s holidays. If you have the opportunity, don’t miss out on celebrating New Year’s Eve at Telluride. The stunning mountain scenery and atmosphere of holiday cheer will give you a vibrant, hopeful start to the year.

Attend A Famous Parade

The most popular New Year’s Eve event at Telluride is the traditional mountainside parade, which begins at 6:30 in the evening. Traveling on skis and snowboards, people glide down the mountain while carrying torches. If you watch the parade, you’ll witness what appears to be a trail of red fire being carved into the mountain and lighting up the night. Fireworks explode overhead as part of the joyous celebration.

Sample Some Delicious Brews

On the afternoon of Dec. 31, Gorrono Ranch is hosting a lively get-together featuring different kinds of beer from Sweetwater and Telluride Brewing Companies. You’ll also be able to enjoy hot cocoa and other beverages that aren’t alcoholic. In addition to food and drinks, the event will offer live music and games.

Welcome the Coming Year With a Concert

On New Year’s Eve, Robert Randolph and the Family Band will be throwing a thrilling concert at the Sheridan Opera House. Expect extraordinary guitar music that draws on different styles, including rock and jazz. Champagne, dancing, and a midnight balloon drop are all part of the evening’s program. Another concert you may want to look into will be held at Club Red and features the Yonder Mountain String Band, a progressive bluegrass group that’s currently touring the country.

Treat Yourself to a Delicious Meal

Telluride’s thriving restaurant scene is one of its main attractions. You’ll find superb chefs preparing a wide range of cuisines. Think about bringing the year to a lovely finish with a sumptuous meal. For example, Altezza Restaurant is throwing a special New Year’s Eve buffet. It will include salad and seafood stations, cheese platters, prime rib, roast duck legs, a variety of side dishes, and an assortment of desserts, including chocolate truffles. Another notable dining event is the elegant New Year’s Eve gala hosted by the Ah Haa School for the Arts. You’ll have the opportunity to meet artists and admire works of art while enjoying a cocktail reception and a four-course meal.

Start Acting on Your Resolutions

For many people, New Year’s resolutions focus on health and well-being, a greater appreciation of life, and stronger relationships with loved ones. If you’re in Telluride for the end of one year and the beginning of another, start acting on your resolutions. The town and its environs encourage a healthy, active lifestyle full of wholesome activities and time spent with family and friends. Go skiing, sledding, or skating.
