Yes...the FREE Gondola. We live in Telluride for 3 months of the year (Jan, Feb, & March) at the Ski View Studio without a car. You can walk anywhere in town in 15 minutes. The Galloping Goose free shuttle is 1 block away from the studio and takes you to the Gondola's Telluride Station.

Your kids or grandkids will love it!

Take a romantic moonlight Gondola ride (it runs from 7am to midnight).

It's also a way to get to the slopes and Mountain Village's many fine restaurants. During the summer there are always special activities for kids.

And of course, start your hike from the mid station of the Gondola

The link between the historic Town of Telluride and the Mountain Village. Make sure your camera/phone is fully charged for photos!

Little know that the Telluride-Mountain Village Gondola is the only FREE Gondola in the Northern Hemisphere, maybe even the world but I would have to double check my facts. It serves as public transportation for the locals - offering environmentally friendly transportation between Mountain Village and Telluride, which would otherwise be a 15-20 minute drive. Living in Telluride, the gondola was one of my favorite things! You don't have to drive in this town, ever

You can also reach the top of the ski lift where Allreds Restaurant is and you can ski down to either telluride or the mountain village core.

Make sure if there is a line, to get in the cab. You cannot get your own gondola when there is a line - you will drive the operators and anyone else in line crazy. If you wait until the end of the line then you can maybe get your own, you aren't special and it always costs everyone else time.

Great photo ops, it is beautiful around sundown on both sides. Highly recommended to get the whole feel. It isn't for people afraid of heights but I know few people or dogs who don't enjoy the gondola.
