Telluride Ski Resort has long had a reputation for being difficult to get to, but this is far from true. It is serviced by two different airports – Montrose Regional Airport and Telluride Regional Airport.
Montrose is about an hour-and-a-half drive from the ski resort, but offers a lot of direct flights in the winter season from places like Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Charlotte, Newark, New York City, Atlanta, Salt Lake City and San Francisco.
Telluride Regional Airport is much smaller but also closer to the resort. This year, the Telluride Regional Airport introduced new flights with Boutique Air, which falls under the United network, allowing for more tourists to use their miles to visit the resort. Travelers can now book a one-way Boutique Air flight between Denver and Telluride for about $150.
