Founded in 1878, Telluride has a history as colorful as the Victorian homes that line its streets. Originally named Columbia, the fledgling town changed its name in 1887. Telluride started to earn its own place on the map as a budding mining town, and eventually a prime ski and mountain destination.
Telluride is one of the most accessible resort destinations in Colorado.
Breckenridge Resort is 6 hours, 40 minutes from the Denver International Airport, or a quick 20 minute drive from Telluride Regional
