The historic mining town of Telluride has slopes to appeal to all skiers, ranging from long greens for beginners, cruising blues for intermediates, to steeps, bumps and powder skiing for experts. However, despite the opening of the Prospect Bowl in January 2002, which almost doubled the size of the ski area, it remains a small ski area. The town itself has maintained its character as a Victorian mining town, with a selection of Victorian architecture, one of many reminders of the town's history. The isolated resort is also privy to some stunning scenery, both at base level and higher up. The resort offers a wide choice of mountain restaurants, whilst following the opening of the Prospect Bowl, there has been a marked improvement in the left system, with queues now a rarity. Non-skiers will also enjoy Telluride, with shops aplenty and a variety of other sports in which to indulge. The resort's aprés-ski is predominantly quiet and sophisticated, though with around 20 bars, there is a lovely night to be had.
