Telluride Gondola

Telluride, Colorado

Say hello to the best commute in America. That’s what locals call this gondola ride in Telluride, CO. The best part of all, it’s yours to enjoy absolutely free -- a total steal when considering the 360-degree views of the surrounding San Juan Mountains you soon come face to face with. Start your journey on Oak Street in the town of Telluride and end at Gondola Plaza in the Mountain Village core -- for the 13 minutes in between, you will not miss your car … or your usual morning commute.
