Telluride Weather & Seasons

Telluride, Colorado experiences all four seasons and they're all spectacular. Generally, winter, late-December through mid-March, and summer, Memorial Day through Labor Day, are the most popular times to visit the stunning San Juans. Next, Fall, the third week of September through mid-October, is sensational with aspen groves awash in gold hues. The window is small though, so don't miss it if Rocky Mountain leaf-peeping is high on your bucket list.  


Telluride Winter Highs/Lows & Precipitation

Although the snowy season can last for a while in Telluride, sometimes from late-October through early-June, temperatures are generally mild. Even on the coldest days in mid-winter, if the sun is out it's beautiful. This is thanks in large part to the dry air and high elevation. That said, the average snowfall in Telluride is around 270" so if you're after classic Colorado power skiing come visit us.
