Known as the Alps of Colorado, this rugged part of the Rockies is truly stunning. The mountains are steep and, although it’s a little harder to reach than other resorts, ski holidays in Telluride are well worth it.

For advanced skiers, this is the best terrain in Colorado, with nerve-wracking chutes and steep powder glades. Long greens flow down to the Mountain Village for beginners and, although the intermediate terrain isn’t extensive, the groomers are divine. For greater scope, Telluride makes an excellent ski safari option, along with Aspen and Crested Bute.

With a backdrop of the San Juan Mountains, the Victorian mining-town has Wild West charm and lots of appeal - the rich and famous often come here to escape. There’s plenty of restaurants, bars and boutiques, with a late-night gondola giving easy access to the slope-side Mountain Village.

"Wow - what a resort! Telluride is a not massive, or easy to get to but, for intrepid skiers, it offers something very special. It’s imperative to book early for Telluride."
