This winter, Allegiant will operate low-cost, nonstop flights to the Montrose Regional Airport in Montrose, Colorado from Los Angeles and Denver. The airport is located just 65 miles away from the charming ski town of Telluride, Colorado.
Telluride, with a population of just over 2,000, is home to world-famous Telluride Ski Resort, one of the nation’s top skiing destinations. Ranked number four on Forbes’ list of top 2017 North American ski resorts, the resort features hundreds of acres of Colorado’s most beautiful mountain terrain.
Skiers and snowboarders can hit the slopes at Telluride Ski Resort on one of its over 120 runs, accessible by one of its 18 chair lifts. The mountain offers terrain suited for any experience level, with a quarter of the mountain considered “beginner” terrain with green and blue runs, perfect for first time riders.
Around 40% of the mountain is considered “intermediate”, with one of the most popular routes being “See Forever”, three miles of scenic lake-view terrain. The rest of the mountain’s runs are black diamond and double black diamond, suited best for advanced skiers and thrill-seekers alike.
A free gondola connects the Telluride Ski Resort with the towns of Telluride and Mountain Village. This year will mark the 20th anniversary of the gondola’s opening, and the resort is planning fun giveaways throughout the season to celebrate!
