Just 2 miles up the slope from historic Telluride is the ski resort community of Mountain Village. This area has primarily developed over the last 20 years, and is a stellar location for easy access to the slopes and the Telluride Ski Resort. From Mountain Village, Telluride is just a short, scenic ride away on the free gondola that serves as the local transit system – the only transportation system of its kind in North America. In fact, the 13-minute ride is a daily event for residents and visitors alike. Several public plazas, including Heritage Plaza, anchor the village center, where summer concerts and a weekly outdoor market are popular events. Surrounding the plazas of this elegant alpine village, you will find excellent shopping and dining, as well as live music venues and vibrant nightlife, always with the backdrop of inspiring mountain vistas that characterize Telluride real estate.
