For me, Telluride is the most beautiful ski resort in the world. There are three ways to get there:
1) The hard way: Nine-hours of planes, trains, and automobiles. Start by flying commercially into Denver International Airport. Despite a two hour layover in Denver, pray you don't miss your connection or your done for the day. Fly a cramped commuter plane to Montrose Regional Airport, wait an hour for your bags, and then take a 90 minute ride up the mountain to Telluride. As the sun begins to set, try not to look at Telluride Regional Airport three miles from the slopes as you pass by.
2) The Expensive Way: Fly directly from NYC regional airports directly into to Telluride Regional Airport. 4-1/2 hours of peaceful relaxation delivering you within 10 minutes of the slopes.
3) The Smart Way: Fly commercially first class to Denver International. Upon your arrival a van from the private air terminal is waiting to take you to your private chartered jet which is warmed up and ready to go. After a short 40 minute flight directly into Telluride Regional Airport arrive refreshed, exhilarated and ready to hit the slopes while saving 70% over the cost of a direct charter flight from the NYC area.
