For those looking to try something other than skiing or snowboarding, consider snowshoeing. A walk through the quiet alpine meadows of Telluride seems like the perfect place to try it. Some resorts offer miles of easy trails. For a more authentic experience, you may want to consider going on such a hike with naturalists. For all architects out there, Telluride is famous for its Victorian and Greek revival architecture in the historic district. Everyone’s favorite is the 13-minute gondola ride. You can use it up to up to Mt. Village. It’s free.
