Welcome to Telluride, Colorado!
Telluride is a historic mining town with some of the world's most exceptional skiing, hiking, and fly-fishing. Combine the outdoor activities with Telluride's art, culture, natural beauty and many festivals and you will understand why Telluride is "the most beautiful place you will ever visit!"
A national historic landmark since 1964, Telluride has a heritage as rich as the silver and gold deposits that brought the miners here more than 100 years ago. The present day town/resort began as a tent city in 1878, evolved into an actual mining town around the first of the century, and finally became a recreation retreat during the 60's and 70's. The original buildings on the main street contrast with the modern and rapidly expanding base ski area of Mountain Village.

Telluride Regional Airport Runway Improvement Update - Phase II reconstruction started on April 7th and was completed November 4, 2009. Phase II consisted of the removal of the existing runway and reducing the grades which resulted in the west end of the runway being lowered by 30 feet the center of the runway (dip error) was raised 16 feet, and the east end of the runway was lowered 14 feet. The result of this is a runway that now meets FAA standards. In addition, the safety areas west of the old dip area have been widened to 250 feet from 150 feet. We have also added all new runway lighting and extended the length of the runway to 6,911 feet.
Phase III was completed in 2010 which widened the remaining safety areas and added Engineered Material Arresting System (EMASS).
