Ensconced in the San Juan range, Telluride is blessed with paths that lead from sidewalk to summit. It’s high-end here, but mountains and music suffused this place before the cash did, and its soul belongs to the outdoors.

Why You’re Here Mt. Sneffels is among the most aesthetic peaks in the state. For a moderate snow climb, tackle the Lavender Coulior in June. Area dayhike: Ballard Mountain.
