A Curated Guide by The Staff

Things To Do in Telluride

There is an abundance of year-round activities to do in Telluride. Those seeking adventure can partake in hiking, biking, fishing, golfing and of course, skiing and snowboarding. The world-renowned Telluride Ski Resort offers some of the most sought-after ski terrain in North America, which is perfect for beginners and experts alike. If you prefer to be part of a group activity or want to leave logistics to an expert, there are guides available for Jeep tours, rafting excursions, fly-fishing and climbing (rock and ice)! Two of the newest activities to try are paddling the San Miguel or high alpine lake on a SUP board and crossing the Via Ferrata, a path of iron rungs 200 feet off the ground! Whatever level of activity you desire, the Hotel Columbia staff is happy to assist.
