According to USA TODAY:
Telluride has long been a recognizable destination name to most skiers, but it remains a white whale for many. It shouldn’t. The town’s old bones, tracing to the time when Telluride was a mining outpost, make for a striking foreground against the backdrop of a seemingly vertical box canyon whose upper walls reflect the sun an hour before rays hit the street in town. Top-end eateries and clever shops keep storefronts jammed and foot traffic circulating. Town runs right into the lower trails of the ski resort, with the Telluride Gondola climbing out and up into Mountain Village, a separate town where much of the ski resort operations and lodging sit. This combination of charming old buildings, striking scenery and proximity to skiing make Telluride the best ski town in North America.
