Telluride is located in a beautiful box canyon in the Rocky Mountains of southwestern Colorado. Surrounded by spectacular, steep forested mountain scenery, this former silver mining camp is especially renowned as a ski resort. Mining was the only industry in this remote area until the first ski lift was installed in 1972. The resort offers a good mix of slopes for beginner, intermediate and experienced skiers. Naturally, skiing and snowboarding are the main attractions in the October to April period, but during the rest of the year this fascinatingly quirky town invites visitors to enjoy hiking, mountain biking, climbing, hang gliding, horseback riding, river rafting and much more. The scenery is simply breathtaking. Bridal Veil Falls is the tallest waterfall in Colorado and is accessible to experienced hikers.
