With Tellurides's remote location the best options are two smaller airports. For the brave few with cash you can fly direct to Telluride’s mountain airport 5 minutes to town, but for most the best option is the Montrose Telluride Airport which is around 90 minutes away by car or transport.
Travel by car
If you opt for a rental car, you’ll want to follow signs from airport to US-550 S. Drive south on US-550 S to Ridgway. In Ridgway turn right onto CO-62 W / State Hwy 62 / Sherman Street. Turn left onto CO-145 S and follow the signs to Telluride. At the traffic circle take the second exit onto W Colorado Ave.
Get a transfer
Whether flying into Montrose or Telluride getting a shuttle from the airport is easy. We have multiple options to choose from and with the Telluride-Mountain Village Gondola that can take you from town to Mountain Village for free, who needs a car.
