re: Colorado Ski Resorts


For sure man. Locals will put you on the best snow for the buck and the best runs all day man.

Knowing a mountain goes a long way.

The town just NW of Steamboat. Starts with an H I believe. Eagle is next closest.

Which airport for Telluride?


I think most (maybe all) commercial flights go into Montrose. It's a fairly long drive on non-major roads -- Telluride isn't the easiest place to get to. There's a much closer airport, but it might not handle anything bigger than a Gulfstream.

re: Colorado Ski Resorts


Durango, Grand Junction, & Gunnison all look closer and are reasonable

re: Colorado Ski Resorts


I think lots of people fly into grand junction or montrose. Telluride has a small airport. Not sure if commercial tho.

re: Colorado Ski Resorts


They (Stmbt and Hayden) are all very far N in Colorado...I am surprised there is not an airport closer to Telluride/Durango, etc as I thought those were pretty far south...I have been to Telluride and Dur. but it was in the summer...gorgeous area...Ouray was a cool little town....

re: Colorado Ski Resorts


Hayden is near steamboat. Durango, Montrose, and gtand junction are near telluride. I may have misread the question. I am on the road near Vegas.

re: Colorado Ski Resorts


Just got back from a week in Park City . It's our favorite . Very easy to get to . We skied PCMR . It was very nice . I like it better than the Canyons and Deer valley .We had 1-2 ft. of fresh powder and the thing I liked was the long runs . A couple up to 31/2 miles long . Sun Dance Film Festival going on this weekend so it's a good weekend to ski .
