Day 11

Ski Telluride

Colorado’s most scenic alpine resort was previously a wild west mining town best known as the place where Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank. The mountains are more craggy and dramatic than in other areas, and the town more than matches its surroundings in the beauty stakes. Many A-listers have chosen Telluride as the destination for a second home, and it's easy to see why. Skiing for all levels, stunning natural beauty and a town packed with charm.

The biggest driving day of your skiing tour so far. And there are many scenic routes back to Denver, the quickest is along I-70 and it will allow the most time to explore Colorado’s capital.
