Dating back to what historians believe was at least a thousand years ago, the native Ute tribe was the first known civilization to inhabit the Telluride valley. They named the area “The Valley of Hanging Waterfalls”… and after experiencing it for yourself, you may find this to be the perfect namesake for this tiny piece of paradise. Telluride’s modern history dates back to the late 1800’s when miners found the area to be rich in zinc, lead, copper, iron, silver, and gold. From it housing the first bank ever robbed by the infamous Butch Cassidy in 1889, to it being the first town in the country to have street lights powered by alternating electrical current, Telluride’s unique history and “wild west” past sets it apart from other luxury Colorado resort towns. Perfectly isolated in the stunning San Juan Mountains, this idyllic mountain town is surrounded by dramatic 12,000’-13,000’ mountain peaks. Pedestrian-friendly Telluride and its neighboring sister-town, Mountain Village, offer free public transportation and a wide variety of activities year-round. Whether you’re into skiing, golf, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, art, culture, film, wine, live music, yoga, or even boutique gallery shopping, there is certainly something here that is calling your name.
